Saira Philip

“Hello! My name is Saira and I started working in child care about 3 years ago. I am currently a student at Hofstra University pursuing my degree in Physician Assistant Studies. In my free time I enjoy hiking, spending time with my 3 year old niece, and volunteering at my local hospital. Tiny Hearts fosters a safe and stimulating environment where teaching is designed to be a two way street. I have learned as much from the children as they have from me!”

Sydnie Schreier

Hi, my name is Sydnie. I am currently the Headteacher for the two-year-olds in Room 4. This is my first year teaching at Tiny Hearts, but I actually graduated from TinyHearts (Teachers Pet’s) when I was a child. Safe to say I enjoyed my experience here. Currently, I am a senior studying Inclusive Childhood Education at SUNY Cortland, and I love it. Before working in daycare I worked at Luhi Summer Programs with all age groups where I was the Head counselor, as well as babysitting. I truly love working with children and being able to see them work towards their milestones. Each child is unique and brings a great piece to this facility where all are welcome. I love to engage with children on their level and be playful as well as be a part of their achievements.


Hajrah Beig

Hi! My name is Hajrah but the kids called me Haj. I am the headteacher for the three-year-olds in Room 7 and have been working at the daycare since 2018. I have had experience working with all of our children from infants to Pre-K. In my time outside of the classroom, I am studying to get my Bachelor’s in Social Work with a minor in Sociology and I have a great interest in art. Arts and crafts are always exciting things to do with the kids! My biggest goal is to see all of our children learn and grow, and be able to foster a happy and healthy environment for everyone.


Hi! My name is Victoria. I am currently a student working towards my Bachelor of Arts degree in Child Studies at St. Joseph’s University. I also am actively seeking certification in special education and general education for kids from birth through sixth grade. I have worked with children of different ages in daycare, nannying, and elementary schools for over nine years. I am thrilled to be a part of your child’s learning and the developmental process by teaching, guiding, and providing a safe, fun, and positive environment. I look forward to a wonderful partnership in your child’s learning here at TinyHearts.


Louise Aguiar, PreK Teacher

Hello, My name is Louise Aguiar, I have four children and seven grandchildren. I have been working with children for 25 years, 13 of those years I spent focusing on special needs children. I am very warm and nurturing. My reward is seeing the smiles each day on the beautiful faces of the children and making a difference in a child’s life. Building special bonds as they learn through a positive and safe environment. I am so excited to begin this wonderful journey being a part of TinyHearts where your children are our children as well.
