Kathy Hassert - Recreation Supervisor, Early Childhood and Preschool

I live in Bolingbrook with my husband and two children. I earned my B.S. degree in Early Childhood from Northern Illinois University and have 27 years of experience working with children ages infant to 5 years old. I have worked with children in hospitals as a Child Life Therapist in addition to working in the child care field. I ran the Argonne Child Development Center for 7 years prior to working here. My career with Bolingbrook Park District started with my being a preschool parent first. After having my daughter in the program and believing in its purpose and path, I became a substitute teacher for the preschool program and an inclusion aide the following year. Since 2008, I have been the Recreation Manager! 

Lori Zoeller - Preschool Coordinator

I am a Bolingbrook resident, wife and mother of three great boys. I graduated from Miami University in Ohio with a degree in Elementary Education. I am a certified teacher, and have taught early childhood for 10 years in public school, private school and park district classrooms. My sons have attended both Stepping Stones and Seedlings programs and truly enjoyed their experiences. In addition to being a parent in the preschool program, I was a substitute teacher here at the park district before accepting the Preschool Coordinator position in January 2013. I love being a part of growing and enhancing this already amazing preschool program that builds social, emotional and educational foundations in the children of our community!
