Toddlers ‘N Tots’ reins passed to next generation

CLARKSBORO — Toddlers ‘N Tots Private Preschool in Clarksboro, NJ is happy to announce that Linda Ann Zeck has become the new director as of Sept. 1.

Linda was a third-grade teacher at the Birches School in Washington Twp. for 34 years. Along with her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, Zeck holds a master’s degree in counseling.

Linda worked at Toddlers ‘N Tots as the preschool teacher when in college and spent many summers as a counselor helping in the summer camp.

Zeck stated, “I am so happy to be able to continue my love for children and education in my new career. We’re blessed with a wonderful staff and a school filled with fabulous children.”

Cindy Pifer, known to the children and parents as “Miss Cindy” will continue as the Assistant Director. As Linda’s Mother, Patricia Ann Zeck, passes on the torch. She will continue to come to work and share her knowledge and expertise and be the school’s consultant.

Toddlers ‘N Tots will continue to provide a safe and loving environment for children aged two months through 12 year old in summer camp.  With Patricia’s 41 years as the Director and Linda’s thirty-four years of teaching, this mother-daughter duo provides 75 years of experience.

 “What’s neat”, Linda added, “is that we now educate and take care of the children of children who attended Toddlers ‘N Tots. It means a lot when parents say they prefer a family-owned private daycare because they know their children will receive individualized care.”

Ronald E. Zeck, Sr. and Patricia Ann Zeck started Toddlers ‘N Tots in 1982 on the lower level of their home and later opened the school right next door to their home. Patricia remarked, “My husband and I are blessed that the second generation of our family will continue our family-owned business”.
