Josette Walters, Director

I have been employed with Joni’s Childcare & Preschool since March 2000 and I truly feel that this center is part of my family. I began my career working as a Preschool Teacher and was promoted to Director in 2012. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Central Connecticut State University and have been working with children in various capacities such as youth camp counselor and mentor of an inner city program (LEAP) for over 25 years.

I have been blessed with a wonderful daughter. Her name is Jonale and she keeps me grounded.

Sheila Wallace, Assistant Director

I have worked in the early childhood field for over 25 years and have completed a number of ECE classes and trainings over the years. I began my journey in a head start program in New Haven, CT, where I later opened my own home daycare. I began working at Joni's in 2004 and have experience in all classrooms. My last position was Head Teacher and Pre-Kindergarten Teacher, but I currently serve as Assistant Director.

I am the mother of two children. My oldest graduated with honors with APRN degree. My youngest in her 2nd year of college. I am truly blessed.
