She began her formal teaching career in California at the Chabad in Palo Alto preschool, continuing on to Tenafly's LPS Chabad Preschool.

Fraidy remained in Tenafly, where for 10 years she has earned a quality reputation for individual care and attention.

In 2019 Fraidy launched the Valley Chabad Mommy & Me, bringing smiles and delight for Judaism to each toddler, helping them grow and thrive. Fraidy sees the value in each and every child bringing out their individual qualities.

Fraidy's goal is for every child to go home happy and with a smile.  In her own words: "I enjoy watching children play, learn and grow, and the opportunity to make a difference in their lives at such a young and impressionable age."

With her professional methodology and expertise, Fraidy helps children reach their fullest potential.  Fraidy is an excellent educator and will go to great lengths to ensure all her children as well as their parents feel relaxed and at home.

The Lubavitcher Rebbe taught that early education should convey three points, love of Hashem love of Torah and love of your fellow Jew.  At Valley Chabad we incorporate all of the above as we nurture a future healthy adult.
