About Grandma’s Kidz Child Care Center

Grandma’s Kidz Childcare Center, a preschool program with before/after school services is a North Carolina LLC, directed and run by Michealene Zaccarine and Michealyn Janiga. A mother, daughter combination that can be compared to no other.

Michealene Zaccarine has been in the early childhood field for the past 30 years. After purchasing a preschool her daughter attended in New York she relocated it to the South Wales Presbyterian Church where she proceeded to run it for 15 years.

She attended Trocaire College, a Catholic College in Buffalo, New York and earned her Associates degree in Early Childhood Education all while raising a family of 5 Children that included two foster children with Down’s syndrome. After relocating to Virginia she decided to teach High School and is working in a vocational program teaching Early Childhood Education. Her curriculum is split between classroom instruction and lab time where her high school students help create a program for neighboring preschool aged children in an Even Start Center at the school. When this program closed, she coordinated with the elementary schools in her district to have her high school students brought over to assist in the Pre-kindergarten classes. She attends several conferences each year and tours local preschool programs to learn as much as she can about Early Childhood Education.

Michaelyn Janiga started her career at the State University of New York College at Buffalo, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Exceptional Education. After teaching emotionally disturbed children for 3 years, she changed her focus and started teaching children with Autism. After receiving her Master’s in Educational Administration, she continued teaching special education for a total of 7 years. At this time, she decided to have children of her own and wanted to put her time and effort into raising her children. Her family relocated to Harrisburg, NC where she has been a stay at home mom for the past 4 years. Michaelyn now holds a Level III North Carolina Early Childhood Administrative Credential.
