Mrs. Perrotti’s early career began in the health care industry, but she soon determined that her true calling was working with preschool children in an educational setting.

In addition to developing preschool and kindergarten home school curriculum, she has taught and developed original curriculum for New Hampshire preschools since 2001 and has served as a Preschool Director since 2004.

Mrs. Perrotti received her New Hampshire Early Childhood Lead Teaching Certificate in 2003 and also holds a Child Development Associate National Credential. She is an active member of the National Association for the Education of Young Children and is involved in local community efforts to assist children with behavioral and learning challenges. She participates regularly in community Preschool Directors meetings and seminars to keep current with the ever-changing field of Early Childhood Education and remains an advocate for children.

When she is not caring for the teachers, students, and parents at the Academy, Mrs. Perrotti spends time with her husband, adult children, and their two, dogs. She is an avid reader and enjoys yoga, traveling and family game nights.

"Building on children's self-confidence and self- esteem fosters both a positive foundation for their future schooling and their future lives as a whole."
