Welcome from our Childcare Supervisor, Kristina Synder
 
Hello parents! I would like to introduce myself. My name is Kristina Connors-Snyder and I will be working with your children in the nursery.
 
A little info about me: I am 40 years old, and I have two children. My son is 18 and my daughter is 8. I miss the young stages! I am a Newton High alumni. I have lived in many NJ towns but I have always liked this area the best, and I somehow knew I would be back. My husband and I bought a home in Newton last year and we are here to stay. My family and I just added a kitten and a puppy to our household. We love animals but I think we will stop there!  I love traveling, gardening, reading, shopping, going to movies, dancing, and listening to music. I work a lot, so I try to make the most of my leisure time.
 
I have always enjoyed working with children and I have done so since I was about 12 years old. First as a mothers helper, then babysitting, nannying, then in preschool settings. I went to Montclair State University straight from NHS and studied to be a preschool teacher. I completed two years. I have done other things but have always come back to jobs that involve working with kids. I just love them! I love their innocence, curiosity and honesty.
 
My position here at Baleville is the first time I have worked in a church setting but I am really enjoying it. The families that I have met so far are lovely, and I am looking forward to meeting more of you.
 
Best regards!
Kristina
