Meet Our Director

My name is Erica Catania. I am the Director at Ladybird Academy of Winter Garden. I have a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education and 18 years of experience. During my career, I have worked in variety of childcare centers, including private and non-profit. Prior to working as an administrator, I performed in many roles within the field that have all helped me develop skills and techniques that I use to train and develop my team. Understanding of the importance of creating an atmosphere that is child-centered is essential in providing quality care. 

As the Director of Ladybird Academy of Winter Garden, I will take great pride in knowing that our center is one that strives for excellence and quality in childcare while promoting an atmosphere that allows each child to grow, strive, and develop the necessary skills to reach their highest potential. Part of my role as a director is to keep abreast of, and advocate for the Early Childhood profession. The field of Early Childhood Education continues to excite me, and I am deeply inspired by our community of learners. I am grateful to work in an environment that emphasizes a sense of belonging and well-being for everyone. It is my belief that strong relationships are an essential foundation for optimal learning. I am looking forward to building a beautiful partnership.
