My name is Maria Lloyd-Jones. I have been the Child Care Program Coordinator at Newfield School since March 2017 and work closely with my wonderful team of teaching aides. Together we support the before school, TLC and after school programs. We work together to create a play-based curriculum, which will enhance the learning and build on the knowledge the children already have.
I have over 30 years of experience within early year’s education, most of which was in England where I was a licensed teacher having had a career which over the years led me to work with children from 3 – 10 years of age.
In 2009 I relocated to Ithaca through my husband’s company. We lived in Ithaca for 3 years before moving to Newfield in 2012 when we became American homeowners. Shortly after my arrival in Ithaca, I began working for the Cornell Child Care Center transferring to a local Ithaca non-for profit in 2011 where I had a dual role of coordinating and teaching in a pre-school class. I spent 6 years here before transferring to Newfield School.
I hope to continue my teaching career here for the foreseeable future. I am pleased and excited to be a part of the Newfield District. Together, I hope we can help your child to grow and flourish into a healthy, happy, inquisitive, and knowledge-thirsty young person.
Please do not hesitate to ask me questions.
