12 Directors of Doodle Bugs! Day 3: Henrietta Edition

This month we are taking a moment to recognize the 12 Center Directors from our corporate locations. Being the leader of a child care center is a big job. Not only are Directors overseeing their team, and the daily operations in the center, they are also role models, nurturers, cheerleaders and teachers for all of the children in the building.

Welcome to day 3 of the 12 Directors of Doodle Bugs! Today we’re highlighting Miss Kara Matzel, Center Director at our Henrietta, NY location.


Miss Kara joined the Doodle Bugs! team this year and brings loads of expertise with her. She has over 10 years of experience in Early Childhood Education, a Bachelors of Science Degree in Childhood Education and Special Education and a Masters of Management Degree.

Kara began her tenure during Summer Camp this year and comments that it’s been an adventure since day one! Every day she looks forward to the smiles, hugs and greetings from the children in her center. For her, making those connections is the best part of every day.
