  • Omarys Casado, School Director

    Omarys Casado

    School Director

    Hi! My name is Omarys Casado, and I am excited to introduce myself as the Director of Education at Primrose School of Morristown.

    I am a proud Kean University graduate. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Psychology and specializations in Speech-Language Pathology and English Writing. I have close to forty credits in children’s development, ranging from courses like infant and toddler development to early speech and language development to special education for multicultural learners in diverse settings. My coursework was geared towards the development of children.

    Throughout my undergrad, I was able to intern at various schools and hospitals for experience with children. During my sophomore year, I interned at Stepping Stones, a school for children with Down syndrome. I observed different age groups and helped with activities, therapies, and lessons. During my senior year in college, I interned at Children’s Specialized Hospital, where I assisted occupational, physical, and speech-language therapists. I learned how to conduct different assessments that examined the development of children. It is important to me to learn different ways and methods to help serve children and parents from different walks of life.

    In my previous director role, I managed programs for children six weeks to 13 years of age! Through research and training, I was able to create my own curriculum. I advocate for research-based education and instruction, and I believe Primrose offers a well-balanced and research-based curriculum.

I have been working in childcare for over 12 years and I love to make a difference and help children learn, grow, and explore.  Since a young child, I have always had a passion for nurturing and teaching young children.

    Prior to Primrose, I had the opportunity to teach and assist in classrooms ranging from infants to second grade, worked with families as a nanny, and taught/enhanced skills for children with learning disabilities as a mental health disability specialist. Helping children progress in all areas of their development has been my true passion. I am excited to work in an environment that nurtures growth in a positive and fun environment. 

    As a business owner of an event planning company "Nickhaze Designs, In my spare time, I enjoy enhancing my craft, making custom apparel, balloon arrangements, and/or personalized items. I also enjoy baking, singing, shopping, cooking, and spending time with my husband, family, and my 8-year-old Havanese dog Bailey.

    Assistant Director

    Hello, my name is Michelle Caroli-Briddon,

    I am excited to be joining the Leadership Team at Primrose School of Morristown as an Assistant Director.

    I hold a Bachelor’s degree in education from East Stroudsburg University with a concentration in Special Education, as well as a Montessori Teaching Diploma for Early Childhood from the North American Montessori Center.

    In addition to my formal education, over the past 18 years, I have had numerous hands-on opportunities as an educator starting as a substitute teacher and basic skill math teacher in a public school. Then for 9 years, I worked my way up from a teacher assistant to director in a Montessori School. Also, I was a private homeschool teacher for a learning pod during covid and most recently an early intervention specialist. My experiences, dedication, and passion foster a positive and nurturing learning atmosphere for children to thrive. Furthermore, I have worked with children outside of an education setting as a nanny and at a high-end day camp as an outdoor specialist and division leader.  I have dedicated most of my life to working with children and have gained a true appreciation for the innate curiosity of young children and the endless possibilities that lie within them.

    I recently married my husband after 13 years of being together and we have a beautiful daughter together.  We love the outdoors, camping, kayaking, and spending time with family.

    I am looking forward to sharing my experiences and supporting the families and staff of the Primrose School of Morristown community.

  • Swati Thakkar, District Assistant Teacher

    Swati Thakkar

    District Assistant Teacher

    My name is Swati Thakkar. I am an experienced CPA Certified Preschool Teacher.

    Before I came to the USA, I was working as a Corporate Lawyer in India. After becoming a mother of two lovely children, I could learn so many beautiful things where I can see through the little minds. And since they started going to preschool, I realized the role of a teacher in a child’s life is right after the parents. Especially, in Early Childhood, if you can give a child the most comfortable feeling where they feel loved, cared and secure, the transition becomes smooth. So I decided to work with the little explorers.

    My goal as a Preschool Teacher is to make a child feel as special as they feel when they are with their family. Teaching them through play, child-directed activities, and at the same time, motivating them to do what they are very much capable of.

    I have received training & experience through Creative Curriculum, High Scope Curriculum, Reggio Emilia based curriculum & Montessori Method of Teaching where daily activities play a vital role in the child’s basic learning skills. I strongly believe in the thought, “We must not assess what the child knows or knows how to do but what he or she could do IF…. We are the IF”
