Educational Director – Decatur Ave. Location

Dear Parents,
Greetings!! My name is Stephanie Goicochea and I am excited to be the Educational Director here at Tender Tots Child Care Center . I am a proud graduate of Lehman College where I received my Bachelors Degree in English with a focus on Early Childhood Education. While at Lehman I also received my teaching certification. Prior to that I attended LaGuardia College where I received my Associates Degree in Child Development.

I have experience working with children on a one on one basis and also as a Head Teacher in a classroom setting. I have created lesson plans that incorporate various curriculum methods and ideas and that can be tailored for many different age groups. My main goal is to create an environment where our children can feel safe and nurtured. A place where they can feel free to explore, learn and grow. Please do not hesitate to contact me through my e-mail address, or by telephone   at (718)324-1052. I look forward to hearing from everyone in the TenderTots Community.

Stephanie Goicochea.


Educational Director – 137th St. Location

Hello! My name is Ms. Vanessa and I am the Educational Director at Tender Tots on 137th Street in the Bronx. I am excited to be embarking on this new journey. I was an Early Childhood Teacher for about 4 years before I stepped into my role as Educational Director. I obtained my B.A. from CUNY Lehman College where I studied Sociology and Early Childhood Education. I am currently working on my M.S. Ed. In TESOL (Teaching English To Speakers of Other Languages).
My Early Childhood years are some of my favorite memories in school. I loved the fun, creative and hands-on approach to learning. This is what I have practiced as a teacher and hope to continue on as an Educational Director. Rich experiences are fundamental on an Early Childhood setting.

I have always been passionate about working with young children. I believe that a safe and nurturing environment sets the tone for learning. My goal here at Tender Tots is to instill knowledge, empathy and kindness in each of the teachers and therefore have it trickle down into the children. When children feel safe and loved, anything is possible! I can be reached at (718)215-4125 or  via email at
