Our teachers have extensive expertise in the area of early childhood learning, several of whom have taught at the center for over 20 years. We continue to get referrals for children who have trouble in other programs, but who come to Asbury and thrive due to the talent and experience of our hard working staff.

Of course, the heart of the organization is the center’s administrative staff. Ellen Donovan is in her 15th year as Executive and Education Director of Asbury Day Care Center. She previously worked for 16 years in Rochester with the Family Resource Center on Webster Ave. in the capacity of early childhood teacher and supervisor. Her interest in growth and development led to a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in Human Development from Empire State College. “My interest and curiosity are both challenged and satisfied working with the children, families, staff, and community of Asbury Day Care Center.” Ellen lives in Rochester and greatly enjoys reading, gardening, hiking, and traveling with friends.
