MEET OUR STAFF

Katie Rouse
Katie RouseChild Care Director
I was born and raised in Freehold and I have been working with children since I was a teen. I have two very sweet step-children and two younger children that you will see in the Infant and Toddler rooms here at the Y. I am passionate about early education and its immeasurable valuable in a young child’s development and most influential years. I have a Master’s degree of Education with certifications in Reading Recovery, English as a Second Language and Administration. I have had the privilege of teaching in both inner city Philadelphia and Hangzhou, China, before returning to my hometown to join the YMCA Childcare family. When I am not working at the Y you will find me dancing and playing games with my friends and family, playing on the beach, and traveling to new places.
Robin Harrington
Robin HarringtonChild Care Program Coordinator
Married and the proud mom of 3 amazing children, I began my career at the Freehold Y in the Babysitting Room on a part time basis in 2005, I became more involved working in the classrooms and taught Gym & Swim, Gymnastics, Kiddie Kapers and Munchkins on the Move. I proudly took the position of Program Coordinator in 2010 knowing I could put my passion, creativity, and strong family values to good use and provide the fun, safe and nurturing environment we strive to create here. I enjoy planning events for the children and staff to enjoy throughout the school year and our summer program as well. The staff here is more like a second family and I value, appreciate and respect them for the work they do every day. I value all of the relationships I have formed with all the children and their families over the years and hope I have impacted their lives as much as they have mine!
Miss Kim
Miss KimWaddler Room Head Teacher
I have an extensive background working with children from ages 15 months all the way up to 5th grade. Most of my professional career was spent with our littlest humans in the pre-school years. I’ve taught 3-year-old pre-school and pre-kindergarten for a total of 15 years and have been working in the child care center for the past year and a half. I also worked at a private day camp for 9 years with ages 3-5, 1st and 2nd grade campers. I have a lifelong love of children and learning and love to watch them grow and develop each in their own way. I’ve also had the pleasure of raising my own 2 daughters alongside my husband.
Inga Larko
Inga LarkoInfant Room Lead Teacher
I was born and raised in Germany and moved to the United States 14 years ago. I went to the Brookdale College for my Early Childhood Education. I have 11 years of experience working with children. I enjoy working with infants, watching them grow and reaching their important milestones. I have one daughter, Julia, who attended the YMCA Child Care Center. She still enjoys coming to the summer camp here. I love living in Monmouth County. In my spare time I like to travel, go to the beach, ski, watch the Giants, and listen to live music.
Lorraine Schlosberg
Lorraine SchlosbergToddler Room Head Teacher
I have been working with young children for the past 30 years in various child care centers. I started as an assistant teacher for 8 years at the YMCA of Western Monmouth in the Child Care Center and then received my CDA at Brookdale College. I have been in my current position for the past 12 years. I am also a proud parent of 3 adult children and a grandmother of 3 age,s 1,3 and 4. Most of my free time is spent with my grandchildren who mean the world to me. As a teacher I strive to create a loving and nurturing environment for my class. My goal is to make sure all my students are thriving and that they get the best care they deserve.
Jenna Sivilli
Jenna SivilliPre-K Head Teacher
I have been at the Freehold Y since 2009 as both a teacher assistant and summer counselor. I became the Head Teacher of the Pre-K Classroom in 2014. I graduated from Georgian Court University in 2012 with a Bachelor’s degree in English. I am dual certified as a Teacher of Elementary Education and Teacher of Students with Disabilities with subject matter specialization in Language Arts and Literacy. I love this job because no day is ever the same. We may have some challenges every now and then but what job allows you to bring out your inner child? It’s an amazing feeling watching the children grow with excitement for an activity they love or when they discover a new concept. Children at this age love to learn. My favorite part of the year is when we start practicing our sight words and word families and we begin reading! It’s amazing how much these kids learn and develop by mid-year. I strive to make my classroom a safe, fun and nurturing environment where my students can grow to their potential. My goal is to prepare my students for kindergarten, not only with a strong foundation for reading and mathematics, but also encouraging both confidence to succeed and independence. I am very proud of my little ones and nothing is more bittersweet than handing my future Kindergarteners their diplomas at graduation.
