A Message From Mrs. Dorozynski,

Sycamore Drive Early Childhood Learning Center, is an amazing school with nurturing staff and friendly students and parents. I am grateful for the opportunity to be your principal. In my new role, I will continue to work collaboratively with staff, students, parents, and community partners in order to continue the success SDECLC has worked diligently to achieve over the years. With strong home school connections, I believe we will keep moving our students and school forward, as we navigate our way through this new reality. 

You should feel that your child’s principal is always available to you if there is any concern.  Please feel free to call the office to talk or schedule an appointment to meet with me at any time. Telephone 732 264-2180 Ext. 8002 You may also reach me via email 

For more information about registering and preparing your child for Preschool and Kindergarten, please read my Principal's Newsletter!

Thank you,

Gina Dorozynski
