Karen Office

(Operations Manager)

I am thrilled to have become part of the CADS family. I absolutely love seeing the children daily, as they walk past the office sharing their stories and their smiles. Prior to moving to the city, I managed a theater arts and fitness studio in South Jersey. In addition to running the studio, I also taught classes such as, kid’s yoga, acting, and music video production. When not in the office, my favorite pastime in this city is going to the theater. I also love riding my scooter to explore the city and its parks and spending time with friends. I live on the Upper East Side of Manhattan with my beautiful, 15 year old daughter, Micaela.


Greta Office


GRETA LESTER (pronounced Greeta)
(Administrative Assistant, Pizza Maker, Appointment Maker, Supplies Coordinator)

In the Fall of 2014, I will be beginning my 30th year at C.A.D.S. I started as a teacher of the tots and toddlers where I loved all the little ones. For the past ten or so years, I’ve been assisting in the office; I call myself, “The Lady That Does”! I was born and raised in England and studied to be a child care worker there. When I came to the U.S., I spent time as an au pair and then started a day care in the garment district. Many of the C.A.D.S. kids believe that I cook the pizza for the pizza lunches…please don’t tell them the truth….I just place the orders. I’m here Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays all day so I’m sure we will meet very soon!
