Josephine Roselle (Jo) is the proud mother of nine children, ages 21 to 39 and ten grandchildren (and counting), ages 20 months to 18. Jo has been married forty years to her husband Gary and they have lived with their family on Page Brook Road, in Greene, NY for the past nineteen of those years.
Jo is a dynamic, high-energy person who not only homeschooled all of her 9 children for over twenty-two years, but also helped pastor a small church with her husband, and spearheaded various community enrichment programs such as couples counseling, children's bible classes, and Binghamton University student outreach groups.
Faced with a soon to be empty nest, Jo decided to go back to school several years ago to complete a Masters in Educational Studies from Binghamton University. After working in childcare at the Campus Preschool at Binghamton University, at the Family Enrichment Network in Johnson City, and at Hillel Academy in Binghamton, Jo decided to use her education and vast experience with children's education to open a Child Care and Preschool facility based in her home.
In addition to being extremely qualified for the job of caring for and teaching children, Jo has a deep love and affinity for children and almost supernatural patience... just ask any of her nine children!
Ariel has been a part of the Page Brook Child Care (PBCC) team since February, 2018. She is the eldest of seven children. Her family would joke and call her a mother hen, because she was always taking care of her siblings. She has had practical experience caring for special needs children, since two of her siblings have disabilities. Ariel also volunteered as an assistant girl scout leader for 2 years. Her love for children, and her unique qualifications make her a welcome addition to the team.
Pam joined the team in January 2019. She has raised her own two children, and has had extensive experience teaching and caring for young children. She has always enjoyed working with young children, and she is well qualified to be a part of the PBCC program. She brings a nurturing and loving presence to the PBCC center every day.
