Debbie's Child Care and Preschool

Our Caring Teachers

These caring adults are the teachers at Debbie's Child Care.  Each person brings their own unique experiences to the children.  All help the children to grow and develop as individuals. They help to make each child feel loved and accepted in every way. 


Debbie Seale (Director)

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood education in 1984.  I worked for the Longwood Medical Area Child Care Center as a Lead Teacher for five years.  I then worked at Communities United, Inc., as a director of preschool and toddler programs for nine years and three years in an administrative position. I have been teaching in my family childcare since March 2001.  I now have two children, an adult daughter, and a teenage son.  I also have a primary school age  grandson.

I have been certified in First Aid and CPR for over 20 years.  I have been a Girl Scout Leader for fifteen years.  I also am active in 4-H and in my church.

Erica Brown(Teacher)

A friend of Marlene, Erica is the mother of a teenage son and daughter.  She worked at Woodbine Playtime in Wellesley with toddlers when her children were young.  Since 2008, she’s been working full time at Bentley University’s Library.  Missing being around toddlers and babies, she enjoyed hearing about Marlene’s days at Debbie’s Child Care.  When an opportunity for a part-time position arrived, Erica jumped at the chance.  It makes her day to be able to interact with the children and see them grow.

Lisa Fisher (Teacher)
The mother of a teenage old son who actually started out here in my childcare when he was 2.  In fact, Lisa ended up spending so much time here that it was a natural transition to have her join my staff in 2007. She is also a rental property owner/manager.  Lisa really enjoys interacting with the kids, especially the babies.  Lisa is certified in CPR and First Aid.
Andrea Baron (Teacher)

 The mother of an adult daughter and longtime friend of Debbie. Andrea met Debbie through Girl Scouts when her daughter was just 4 years old. Andrea and Debbie teamed up as Girl Scout leaders shortly after that. Andrea has been working at the daycare since day 1, first as a backup teacher, and now as a part-time teacher. Besides working with Debbie, Andrea is the Office Manager at Temple Beth Israel and the Office Manager for her husband, Attorney James Baron, who specializes in Education Law and Special Needs Estate Planning. 

 



Marlene Goldsmith (Teacher)
 The mother of a teenage daughter, holds an elementary education certificate and taught preschool in Cambridge for 12 years.  Proximity to my house and a love of smiling faces (crying and pouting are acceptable too) brings her here often. She is certified in CPR and First Aid.  Marlene has been a substitute teacher here since 2009 and now works here on a part time schedule.
