CDT Early Learning Academy (CDT ELA) Teachers

Yulia Levkov- Teacher and Program Director

    Yuliya was born and raised in Belarus where she graduated from high school.  Following her graduation, when she was only 17 years old, she moved to Israel without her family.  She served in the Israeli army and enrolled in the Be'er Sheva Institute, where she received her degree in early childhood education

From 2010 to 2015, Yuliya owned her own daycare center in Israel. After moving to the United States in 2015 with her husband and two children, she immediately started working as a teacher and director.

Yuliya has over 16 years of experience working with children, and she speaks three languages: English, Russian, and Hebrew. 

Yuliya believes that every child is an individual, a person from the first second of their life. They deserve respect, love, and quality education from caring and smiling teachers! It all starts in childhood!


Shani Vayner- Teacher and Director

My name is Shani, and I am thrilled to be part of your child's learning journey.

As a devoted teacher, my primary goal is to create a nurturing and stimulating environment where each child can grow, develop, and realize their potential.
I am passionate about fostering academic success, nurturing social interactions, encouraging creative expression, and enhancing problem-solving skills.
Every child is unique, and supporting their individual interests and needs brings me great joy.

Beyond the classroom, I believe in showing warmth and empathy in every interaction. Celebrating small victories with positive feedback and encouraging words is fundamental to my approach. I strive to make every child feel valued and supported.

Effective communication with parents is crucial to me. I believe that a strong partnership between parents and teachers is essential for the holistic development of our children.

A bit about me personally: I am married to Moshe, a proud mother to our son Roy, and a pet parent to Peach the cat and Yoda the dog. My family inspires me every day, fueling my passion for teaching and enriching my approach to childcare.

I look forward to getting to know you and your child better. Together, let's create an inspiring and supportive learning community!
