Goldstein Appointed SACC Director
The Fairfax County Office for Children announces that Anne Goldstein has been appointed director of the School Age Child Care program. SACC is in its 30th year of offering fun, safe and educational care for 5-12 year-old children before school, after school, and during school vacations in Fairfax County elementary schools.
Anne-Marie Twohie, the director of the Fairfax County Office for Children, noted that Goldstein is “An ardent advocate for children and families and the child care profession.”
Goldstein has more than 30 years of experience in the field of early childhood education. She was the founding executive director of the National Child Care Information Center, and has directed child care programs in both Fairfax and Montgomery counties. Goldstein served as the director of state policy initiatives at Zero to Three, and also as an adjunct professor of early childhood development.
“I fell in love with SACC the first time I visited a SACC classroom and saw the wonderful experiences it provides!” Goldstein said. “The SACC team has created an exemplary program and environment that welcomes and supports children and families, and provides an invaluable service to our community.”
Last year more than 12,000 children were enrolled in SACC, including more than 1,200 children with disabilities. SACC is offered in more than 136 locations during the school year. Goldstein joins the SACC leadership team on April 26.
