Beata Spizarna Is the executive director of Play and Learn. She Opened her first center in 2007 in Middle Village, Queens in order to meet the growing demand for child care in the quickly expending neighborhood. After al-most ten years of working with the wonderful families and educators of the com-munity, she decided to expand her sights and worked on opening another facility. Having found a great space in the thriving and diverse neighborhood of Williams-burg Brooklyn, she was thrilled to begin the process of fulfilling her vision and providing high-quality daycare to a new community.
Beata has been dedicated to the field of education ever since she completed her early education degree in Europe. Eager to continue to pursue her passion in a new country, she attended City College of New York and spend many years teaching pre-school in New York City. After almost a decade of experience, she wanted to make a bigger impact on the community and support working families with flexi-ble childcare options.
Beata works closely with her staff to ensure that the school culture and policies reflect the best practices she has discovered and adopted throughout her career. Her mission is to aid in giving young learners a bright and wonderful future through a safe, stimulating and loving environment. With the belief that school should be as a warm space where children feel at home, Beata strives to design her centers with the aesthetics that invite children to play, learn, and explore.
