Cora Bogdan

Cora has been in early childhood education since 2002 and has bachelor’s degree in early elementary. Cora worked with almost every age group from infants to school age before becoming a regional director in 2011. Cora found a love for childcare when she first became an infant teacher many years ago. As the regional director of the Cleveland area Nest Schools, Cora enjoys working with directors and teachers to help ensure that they provide the best care possible for the families they serve.

Cora lives in Cleveland with her husband and two children and enjoys gardening, cooking, and baking in her free time. Her favorite childhood book is The Little House on the Prairie because she read it to her children when they were growing up, and it is now a favorite of her daughters.
