Vera Ivey, who has 15 years of leadership and classroom experience in early education and care, is the Director of Stone House Early Learning Center, where she is responsible for opening the center. She is recruiting a highly qualified staff and completing state licensure requirements for the center. She will oversee staff training and program implementation.
For seven years prior to joining Stone House, she served as Center Director for Children’s Services of Roxbury Early Care and Education. While there, she oversaw a program of 93 children and 28 staff, and mentored young adults from the Action for Boston Community Development Work Program. Along with these responsibilities she managed state contracted slots of homeless and teen parents and their children in the same program. She has also served as Executive Director of Little Sprouts and as both Educational Coordinator and Program Director at Lena Park.
Vera Ivey was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts, where she graduated from Boston Technical High School (currently, John D. O’Bryant School of Math and Science).

She also holds a Master’s Degree in Human Resource Management with a concentration in Leadership Management.
Vera’s philosophy as a Program Director is to develop a positive learning environment that allows young children to learn through play. Her belief in learning through play develops young children’s cognitive, social and physical skills that allow children to feel more confident in their future learning environments.
