Meet Our Teachers

Cheryl Demuth, Founder and Executive Director

In 2001, Cheryl began working with young children in a small, group family daycare program. Prior to her work with young children, Cheryl taught all ages, including adults returning to school at the local community college. However, she realized while sitting in the dress-up area of the classroom with a tea cup in one hand and a dinosaur in the other hand that early childhood education was the career for her.Cheryl

After working a few years in the field, Cheryl returned to school for her graduate degree. Attending Bank Street College of Education in New York, she received a Master’s in Early Childhood Leadership in 2008. Upon graduation, Cheryl began the process of creating Livingston Street. With the help of many friends and family, Livingston Street opened its doors to the Kingston community in November 2010. Since then, the program has grown in size and reputation. With an emphasis on emotional and social development, outdoor experiences, and community involvement, Cheryl has created a progressive and sustainable early childhood program that is inclusive of all.

Cheryl lives in Kingston with her husband, Tim. She likes to sleep late on Saturdays, read, and go for hikes in the Catskill Mountains.

Among many other things, working with children has always been an interest of hers. In college, she took three semesters of Sign Language, inspiring a love for the language. She enjoys sharing her passion for signing with the children. She also enjoys sewing, particularly designing her own clothes, and hiking and biking throughout the Hudson Valley.
