Our Owners

Danielle Erdberg’s parents, Diana and Tom, opened Country Grove Childrens Center (CGCC) in 1998 and believed it should be a family run and managed business.  In 2020, Country Grove Childrens Center was passed down to their daughter Danielle and her husband, Evan Erdberg.

Danielle grew up in Poughkeepsie and spent her childhood at the center both as a student and as an employee working with the children.  Danielle and Evan have three young children themselves and understand the importance of having a daycare you can depend on and trust.   Danielle and Evan are excited to continue the tradition started by her parents at CGCC by investing in great employees and innovative instructional programs.

Our Directors

Our directors, Denise & Monica, have been part of the Country Grove family for more than 20 years! They began their careers here as Teacher Assistants, and have risen through the ranks; even their children are Country Grove grads! Denise & Monica’s fun-loving nature is infectious! Monica pulls double duty as our 4s teacher. Denise likes to bop from classroom to classroom, especially to get silly and sing and dance with the kids!
