CONTRIBUTORS

Two experienced early childhood professionals contributed to the revision of this edition:

Lorraine Breffni, Ed.D., is the Executive Director of Early Childhood and Parenting Institutes at Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) Mailman Segal Center for Human Development. She is also Affiliate Faculty at NSU’s Fischler College of Education. Dr. Breffni directly supervises three early childhood programs including an infant and toddler program; a preschool program; and a parent and child education program. She has worked as an instructor/mentor for the Community Outreach initiative at the Mailman Segal Center assisting preschool teachers as they enhanced emergent literacy practices in their classrooms and as they developed strategies to accommodate the needs of at-risk children and families.

Dr. Breffni has co-authored the text All About Child Care and Early Education and its companion resource All About Child Care and Early Education: A Trainee’s Manual. She has written numerous articles for publication and has developed and taught a diverse range of academic subjects at Nova Southeastern University including courses on Developmental Psychopathology, Play Therapy, Best Practice in Emergent Literacy, and Best Practice in Prekindergarten Curriculum.

Mary Jean Woika, M.Ed., has worked in early childhood education and early childhood special education for over 30 years. She is currently an assistant professor and program manager at Broward College. In addition to teaching, her responsibilities at the college include mentoring practicum students in their early childhood classrooms throughout Broward County, and mentorship to the North Campus Lab School. Ms. Woika has co-authored a textbook and trainee’s manual, All About Child Care and Early Education, which was developed to be used in the training of CDA students.

Before coming to Broward College, Ms. Woika was a child care director, an early interventionist, an early childhood special education teacher, a behavior consultant, and inclusion specialist in an outreach program. She has taught college courses in Pennsylvania, Colorado, Massachusetts, and in Florida, in face-to-face, blended, and online formats.
