Meet Our Director: Judy Gerber
With over 30 years in the field of education, Judy Gerber brings a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience to her position. After completing her bachelor’s degree from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, she went on to teach on the preschool and elementary school levels and held early childhood management positions that helped expand her ability to lead. She is particularly excited to be part of the FELS family because of our reputation for providing high quality early childhood education. Judy believes that open, frequent communication is necessary if successful relationships are to be developed with children, parents and staff. She and her staff work toward that goal which, in turn, creates a loving, nurturing and open environment. Judy enjoys traveling, skiing, live theater and music, and most of all, spending time with her loved ones.
Lassin Early Learning Center has been operational for 36 years and is serving the second generation of children in some of our families. Content areas such as reading, math, science and art are integrated into a central theme that makes learning fun and meaningful. Head Start and Pre-K Counts classrooms have been a part of the Center for many years. Parents are involved in the center and families develop strong connections. With enclosed playgrounds for each age group, we help develop healthy bodies and minds. Jewish programming and multicultural activities expose our children to the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all of the children in the classroom.

Lassin is also the home of the Kate’s Secret Garden, established in memory of Kate Svitek, the granddaughter of Bob and Hope Clair, FELS supporters for over 35 years. It provides a beautiful place for the children to exercise, play and explore, while learning to love nature as Kate did.
