Our Director

http://www.warnermemorial.org/uploads/RANA_ORIOLA_HEADSHOT.jpgWarner is pleased to welcome our new LCYC Director, Rana Oriolo! Rana comes to LCYC from the Rockville Community Nursery School, where she had over nine years’ experience teaching in the 2-year-old, 3-year old and 4-year old programs, and served as assistant director. Rana’s positive attitude, kind disposition, and non-stop energy make it very easy for parents to entrust their most precious possessions to her. Her ability to balance the individual needs of students, along with her understanding of young children’s development in a group, allow her to create a warm, nurturing environment where children learn together and thrive as individuals. Rana is a graduate of the University of North Carolina, Charlotte, with a Bachelor’s degree in Child and Family Development and a Birth-Kindergarten teaching license. She has completed continuing education in preschool administration.

Rana knows the parent cooperative model from both sides, as a teacher and a parent. She grew up in Montgomery County and attended MCPS schools from Pre-k to twelfth grade. She lives in Olney with her husband and three children, ages 9, 6 and 15 months.
