Mary Annthipie Bane, a preschool teacher in Belford, New Jersey, is known for getting down on a child’s level and truly engaging them in their learning experience. Though she’s taught at many preschools, KinderCare has always been her dream job. “I found out that while she was teaching at another preschool, that it had been a dream of hers to work at KinderCare,” said Sheila Niehaus, regional vice president. Now, not only has Mary’s dream come true, but she’s been recognized as one of the best teachers KU has! Congratulations, Mary!
