Childcare Center Director
My name is Katherine Stansbury and I am the Center Director of the new Mater Dei Catholic Childcare Center.
Growing up, I attended Catholic Elementary School at Saint Alphonsus and high school at Mount Saint Joseph’s Academy. Upon graduating from high school, I attended college at West Chester University.
I started my career in ECE as a school age teacher but quickly developed a passion for working with young children. I was promoted to Assistant Director of my childcare facility (and was Acting Center Director on several occasions). I have loved managing childcare centers for the past 10 years.
I live in Hatfield with my husband George and our amazing children Addison (4) and James (5 months). We enjoy spending time with each other, fishing, and going to the beach.
I am so excited to have joined the family here at Mater Dei and look forward to getting to know you and your families!
Assistant to the Director
My name is Mary Whittam and I am the Assistant to the Center Director.
I have been a member of St. Maria Goretti Parish since 1972. I am a graduate of St. Maria Goretti Elementary School and Lansdale Catholic High School.
I started my career at the YMCA with 3-year olds in 2007. I have worked in several facilities/school districts with young children over the past 10 years and I have always truly enjoyed inspiring my students. But more importantly, I have always been inspired by them.
Now I have the wonderful opportunity to be a part of the new Mater Dei Catholic Childcare program as the Assistant to the Director.
I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful girls. We have a black lab/mix named Tucker. I enjoy reading, cooking, going to the beach, and being with my family.
I look forward to being with your children and I thank you for entrusting them with us.
