Christy ScottChristy Scott

Executive Director

I have been working at the Cobleskill Campus Child Care Center since 2007 where I started out as the School Age teacher for our after school program. I have my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood as well as an Associate's Degree in Child and Family Services. I have had more than 10 years of experience working with children and have found preschool to be my true passion. I am eager and excited to work with and learn from all the students and families I may encounter on my journey as a teacher.

Beth DenverBeth Dever

Administrative Manager

I received my Associates in Business Administration in 1978 from Hudson Valley Community College. Prior to my Employment at Cobleskill Campus Child Care Center I was Fiscal Officer at Equinox in Albany. I started at the Center in 1990 as a part time bookkeeper. As the Center grew and expanded I took on more roles until in 2005 I was promoted to Administrative Manager. In addition to my financial responsibilities I take care of enrollment, human resources implementation, scheduling and assist our Executive Director in overseeing compliance with OCFS regulations. This is a wonderful environment to work in… none of my previous employers included daily hugs as a benefit.

My husband, Don, and I have lived in Schoharie County since 1984. We have three adult children and two wonderful grandchildren. I enjoy working with the best child care providers in the world!

My name is Tammy Durham. I’m the Kitchen Manager/Cook here at the Cobleskill Campus Child Care Center. I have been here since 2014. I have over fifteen years’ experience in the field of cooking. I have also worked with children as a room aide and a bus driver, both which I loved doing.

I was born in Schoharie County, moved away for some time and have now returned to what will always be home. I am married to an awesome man, we have four beautiful children, and eight wonderful grandchildren.

Working here at the Center I have the best of worlds: Cooking; my passion, and Children; a blessing.
