Puddle Jumpers Goals

Two year olds learn and grow in many exciting ways.  During the year, your child will increasingly become independent as he/she learns to use the toilet and do things “all by myself.”  Your child will become more verbal and consequently, more social.  Your child will also become more self-aware as he/she learns that he/she is a separate and unique person with his/her own feelings and needs.

Lea Ramuno

Hi!  My name is Lea Ramuno.  I am a full time toddler assistant teacher at FCCC.  I attended Community College of Philadelphia and received my Associate’s Degree in ECE.  Before working in a center, I gained some experience for a few years by babysitting part time while I was in school.  I also worked in another center to do my practicum and worked in a hands-on atmosphere with the children at the center.  I have always dreamed of becoming a teacher.  At FCCC, my team recognizes and values the importance of early childhood education.

I enjoy watching the children grow and develop throughout the years.
