Meet the New Learning Ladder Pre-school Director: Kathleen Rutledge

Please join me in welcoming Kathleen Rutledge to our Learning Ladder Pre-School, as our new Childcare Coordinator.

Kathleen has been with the Capital District YMCA for 7 ½ years. During this time, she has held numerous roles at the Glenville branch, including positions in wellness, property, facility (coordinator) and finally as a babysitter in children’s corner.

Kathleen has been involved in Childcare since 2003. In September of 2015, she was promoted to Children’s Corner Coordinator and Lead Teacher of the Learn and Play pre-school program.

Kathleen has her Child Development Associate credentials, a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and is currently enrolled at Hudson Valley Community College where she will be taking Early Childhood Education classes.

Kathleen loves working with children and seeing them grow and learn and develop friendships.
