Nurturing the endless potential in every child, every step of the way.
A Home Away from Home
A high quality early learning environment offers more than just a safe place for children; it has a profoundly positive effect on a child’s early development and sets the foundation for positive relationships and a lifetime of learning. Mead is dedicated to providing a warm, supportive environment, serving as a home away from home for both child and family.
Robyn's commitment to Mead has been life-long, as her entire career has been at Mead! Robyn studied Psychology with a concentration in Human Development and Family Relations at UCONN, and started her teaching work at Mead with Infants and Toddlers. After 6 years, Robyn moved into Administration as the Director of Child Care. In 2020, Robyn was promoted to Assistant Head of School for Early Learning, and she has played a critical role as Co-Chair of Mead's Reopening Committee. Robyn ensures that Mead's Early Learning program follows essential mitigation strategies in an ever-changing climate of state, local, and federal guidelines.
