Stefanie Maiuri 

Executive Director

Bringing a wealth of educational experience and enthusiasm about the field of early childhood, Stefanie became the Executive Director of The Alliance for Early Childhood in June of 2018. Prior to joining us, she spent eleven years in education in the North Shore as a classroom teacher, instructional coach, and district administrator. Stefanie’s experiences in education, values, and expertise are deeply rooted in how children develop and learn. As a mom to a toddler, she is inspired by our organization’s commitment to young children and passion from our community. She strongly believes that The Alliance’s mission is needed more than ever.
