Anne Harrison, Director
I am originally from Gloucestershire, England. I graduated in Early Childhood Education from Gloucestershire College. In 1984 I moved to the United States. I have been working for the KLC/CCLC family of schools since January 1995, and have been a director since 1999. I have worked through the process of NAEYC Accreditation at all levels, and I enjoy the challenge of maintaining those standards on a daily basis as well as empowering our team to exceed them.
My husband and I have two beautiful daughters. Our dog and hamster complete our family. Away from work I enjoy spending time at home with my family and friends. I, also, love to read. My other spare time is taken up by either watching one daughter on the soccer field or the other one on the basketball court.
Tonya Henderson, Assistant Director at Copeley
I moved from North Carolina and settled in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2003. I took a position with Albemarle County Schools as a teaching assistant to the first and second graders and was the site facilitator for one of the local after school programs. I completed my Associate in Education from Piedmont Community College in 2010 and will be attending Ashford University to earn my Bachelors in Education. My philosophy is that each child deserves a school in their community where they can be safe, healthy, supported and engaged.
My passion for teaching began in 1996 when I taught preschool in Italy. Since then I have been able to share my love for teaching with children of various ages. I found my home at the University of Virginia's Child Development Center in 2006 where I taught preschool and was the Program Specialist until my current position as Assistant Director for the Two to Five Year Old Center. The best part of my job is watching the children we care for grow and reach those important milestones in their lives.
I love to travel and experience new places, and spend time with my family. In my spare time I practice perfecting my photography skills on my cutest subject, my grandson.
Taryn Evans, Assistant Director at Earhart
I grew up on a large farm in rural Pennsylvania. Agriculture was very important to our way of life. I studied it throughout high school and graduated with a specialty in Horticulture. I earned my Bachelors of Science from Delaware Valley College with a degree in Secondary Education Agriculture. I have been working at the University of Virginia Child Development Center since 2006. It provides me the opportunity to link my personal love of agriculture with my passion of educating children. I enjoy helping children discover the connection between agriculture and their daily lives.
