Amy Endler

Assistant Teacher

Amy is thrilled to be the assistant teacher for the 4 year old class at Weekday Nursery School this year. She can’t wait to foster an environment that allows every child to explore, grow and shine! Amy received her BA in Psychology from UMass-Amherst and a Masters in Public Health from Boston University. After working for many years in the public health field, she relished the opportunity to dedicate her time to her young children. Soon, Amy opened her home to other children who needed care as well, and she has been a nanny for the past year. While planning activities, Amy often found herself recalling her own unique childhood educational experiences. She specifically remembers her teachers fostering a love for reading, art and music; encouraging learning through play and a focus on exploring her environment - all of which she looks forward to sharing with her students as well. Amy lives in East Northport with her husband, 3 daughters and a shaggy pup who often gets mistaken for a cartoon character.

Judith’s youngest child went to Weekday and felt at home right away with her sweet and warm teachers. Coming from the Netherlands was a big change, but Judith and her family love it here. Some activities Judith enjoys are field hockey, water sports, skiing, surfing and running. She is currently training to run this year’s NYC Marathon!
