Vanessa Poltarack



faculty_vanessaHello everyone, my name is Vanessa Poltarack. I have been at CIJS since it opened in 2014.  My favorite age to work with has always been the toddlers, because I love to see their emerging vocabulary and excitement towards all the things around them. I love the Reggio approach and can’t wait to spend time with your kiddos!

I have a BS in Early Childhood from the University of Central Florida. I was born in Miami FL and moved to Orlando in 2010 to pursue my degree.

I have a passion for the arts. I love to dance, listen to music and I also love to spend quality time with family and friends. I spend a lot of my time outdoors and with my two cats.

Feel free to contact me anytime with questions.

Education should be meaningful and exciting. It is my goal as a Director to provide students with experiences that encourage them to explore and discover the world around them. We introduce topics that support their excising knowledge, but also expand their minds to unknown topics and skills that support them in the future.
