My name is Kat Bowden, you can find me in the toddler room! I've been working in the Early Childhood field for over five years. I love working with children of all ages, but my favorite place to be is with infants and toddlers. I truly enjoy watching them grow and achieve milestones!

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and friends, going to the beach, cooking, reading, and listening to music!

My name is Emma Eliason. I recently graduated from the University of New Hampshire with my Master's in Early Childhood Education.  I received my bachelor's from UNH where I studied Dance.  My greatest passions are working with young children and dancing.  I love witnessing how young children learn and grow as they explore the world.  Children also learn through movement and I am excited to bring dance and movement to the classroom whenever I can.
I grew up in Massachusetts and discovered my passion for teaching when I worked in a few childcare centers throughout high school.  In college, I also worked at the childcare center at UNH and later gained experience teaching in an elementary school. In my free time I enjoy hiking, reading, yoga, and dancing.

Hello! My name Courtney Whitehouse. I have worked at BVS since July of 2019. You can find me in the Toddler room. While I was in high school I spent all four years in the teaching program. During my time there I worked with infants, toddlers, and preschool aged children! I knew I wanted to be a teacher and am so happy to be apart of the BVS Team!

In my spare time I love to go to concerts, visit the beach, and spend time outdoors. I love going four wheeling, mudding, and camping!

My name is Cheryl McCarthy.  I have been in childcare for over 30 years.  I have taken care of and taught children from the ages of 6 weeks to 6 years old.  I attended College for Life Long Learning and have thousands of hours in workshops, and I continue to add to them yearly.  I love what I do.  There is nothing better than seeing the world through a child's eye, watching them grow and achieving their milestones and accomplishments.

My name is Anya Dion and I am a teacher in the infant room! I recently started at BVS at the beginning of January 2020 after leaving a previous career. I soon realized I wanted to work more closely with children of all ages. I have a degree in sociology and a minor in psychology from Southern New Hampshire University. I’ve lived in NH my whole life and I couldn’t imagine myself anywhere else. I am a cat mom and definitely a homebody but I like going to concerts, being outdoors and spending time with family. I also grew up dancing and still have a passion for it. I’m happy to be apart of the BVS team!

Each one of our teachers are credentialed in the State of NH!

I enjoy watching the children learn, grow, and become more independent each day. I’m also thankful for the relationships I build with the families of the children in my care.

I have been married for 21 years and have two beautiful children. In my spare time I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, attending concerts, going to the beach, and being up in the mountains.
