Welcome to our Toddler Room!
As all of Brookside’s classrooms are set-up into age appropriate learning centers for each age group, to promote educational early childhood development, we welcome you to Brookside’s Toddler classroom. In our classroom, we’ve established an exceptional toddler learning program that builds their characters with a variety of stimulating programs. Our little adventurers will be able to explore their new environment that is enriched in toddler learning materials that include a Reading Center, Block Center, Dramatic Play Area, Music, and Movement Center, Science and Math Center as well as a Gross Motor Climber. We have built our toddler learning programs to incorporate both play and education to help them grow brighter with each day. With our fantastic ability to have fun while educating our little explorers through games, crafts, and play activities, we help them develop the skills to move forward into our next level; preparing them for the more advanced learning programs we include in our Pre-School room.
Your little ones will have nothing but fun in our toddler room, making life long friends and learning life long lessons in manners, sharing, fun, and character building. Contact us today in order to set up a site visit to receive more information about our local early childhood education center!

Lead Toddler Teacher & Assistant Director
Hi, I’m Miss Sam. I have my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education along with my Directors Certification. I have been working in childcare for over 10 years. My experience has primarily been with toddlers but I have worked with all ages.
Working at Brookside Children’s Early Education Center in the Toddler Room has truly given me a deeper lover for children. It is a family environment that makes me feel welcome every time I walk in the door. I also love working for BCEEC because I get to watch the children develop. Teaching the children and preparing them for life also gives me joy in working at BCEEC.
I am also the Assistant Director of BCEEC! This has been a wonderful opportunity for me! I enjoy helping to keep the center organized and running for all the families and staff.
I believe my passion for children has come from the love of my 2nd grade teacher and also my large family. I have 4 older sisters, I nephew and 3 nieces. I have no children of my own except for my horse, Cinnamon! Cinnamon is my pride and joy in life and I have been with him since he was born. I enjoy taking care of him and riding him for pleasure! Besides spending time with Cinnamon, I like spending time outdoors and watching movies. I plan on sky diving, bungee jumping and traveling across seas in some of my outdoor adventures.
Assistant Toddler Teacher
Hi, my name is Sana A. Bitar. I am an assistant teacher in the Toddler classroom. My husband and I are both from fairly large families with a strong Christian background. We have two children, Amy 18 years old, Mark 14 years old. I started my career at Vista College, Berkley, California in the San Francisco Bay area.
While going to college, I worked as a babysitter for one of our next door neighbors. Later on I got a job at a family childcare called “Peace of Mind.” It was good to be able to utilize what I have learned in the classroom at my place of work. To continue my learning in the childcare field, I got a job with Head Start.
In the Fall of 2008, my family and I moved to the Lehigh Valley in Allentown, PA. In November of that year I started working for a church sponsored childcare in Center Valley called “Country Kids.” In the spring of 2011 I was introduced to Brookside Children’s Early Education Center where I found the most talented, caring and friendly staff. Since working, helping and educating kids are my favorite things to do. I found myself to be in love with my task at the Brookside Center. In my free time, I go for walks, love to listen to music and read.
