Necessity is the mother of invention, the saying goes. This rang true for Sheri Canfield when she first looked into preschool programs for her twin children, one of whom was diagnosed on the autism spectrum. She looked for child care programs that could accommodate her two children, those who would be fully integrated, a 50/50 split with disabled and non-disabled children.
She was failing in her search. So she started the Spotted Zebra Learning Center in 2005. At the time, she was working as a commissioner for the Department of Youth and Workforce Services for the City of Albany, but in 2006 she went full-time at daycare and preschool. Canfield, executive director and owner of Spotted Zebra, reflected on the past 17 years.
