the people…

Tara Minardo is the founder of City and Country Child. Mom of three (Philip,Isla and Chloe). Sister to six! Tara has a B.A. in Early Childhood Education from Catholic University of America, an M.A. in Developmental Psychology from Columbia University, a Certification in Gifted Education from the state of New York and is a licensed Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST). Tara was an early childhood teacher until she had Philip. She loved being home with her children and she also loved teaching. Tara noticed that she was always the “go to” person for most family and friends when it came to information on planning for their children, before and after birth. So why not take her passion for children in another direction and educate their parents? Thus, the birth of City & Country Child.
