A New Early Childhood Consultant Joins the Staff!

Family and Childcare Resources of N.E.W. welcomes Diana Zorn to the staff as an Early Childhood Consultant. She is part of a team of consultants who support child care providers in the Youngstar Quality Rating and Improvement System. YoungStar is a program of the Department of Children and Families created to improve the quality of child care for Wisconsin children.

Diana is a Packer’s fan and loves camping. She is familiar with Northeast Wisconsin having grown up in Stockbridge, WI. She attended college at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay where she received her Bachelors Degree. She later received her Masters Degree in Education with an emphasis in Early Childhood.

Before coming to Family & Childcare Resources of N.E.W., Diana worked as a Formal Rater with YoungStar at Wisconsin’s Department of Children and Families. “I loved the position, but working as a remote employee, I did not have a lot of contact with people,” says Diana. “When the position of Early Childhood Consultant, the other half of YoungStar, became available I knew it was time to get back to an office setting where I would have more contact with people.”

Diana will now be bring her experience to work with childcare providers in our seven county delivery area to improve quality through trainings and consultations to prepare for formal ratings.

Diana can easily answer what she is most proud of, “My children! They are great kids with fun personalities (Daughter, Maya, 15 years old and Son, Kyle, 12 years old). I have enjoyed watching them grow into caring, funny, and smart teens.” Diana is a great addition to our team bringing her knowledge of early childhood and dedication to nurturing growing personalities.
