A Note from Our Administrator
Hello, my name is Ms. Erin Goldberg. I am the Administrator here at DLA. I’ve been involved in the early childcare and education field here in Delaware for the past 22 years. I started my journey cleaning classrooms and working with school-aged children in a before-and-aftercare program. I have also had the pleasure of owning a small preschool for a few years. My teaching journey has had me in the pre-K classroom for the past six years, working closely with preschoolers.
I received my degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Arizona. I am what is considered a lifelong learner as I truly enjoy learning and keeping up with all the changes in the early care and education field.
On a personal note, I am the mother of two amazing sons—one college sophomore and one just finishing kindergarten. I love music and have a very eclectic taste. Girl groups of the fifties and sixties, street jams from the eighties, and nineties punk rock are my favorites (to name a few).
I looking forward to working closely with your family to ensure your little one has the best early learning experience possible.
