Most recently, Laura was the Child Care Director overseeing both the Child Care Program and Aquatics Program at the Edison Branch YMCA,” stated Danielle Cioffi, District Executive Director of The Gateway Family YMCA.

Laura brings extensive experience to The Gateway Family YMCA, with a Y career spanning 13 years. “I realized that I loved SACC and Camp and that I wanted to come back to working with that age group,” stated Laura Margeotes. Laura graduated from Kean University with a Bachelor’s Degree in History, and is a proud mother of 2 beautiful little girls, Olivia who is three and Samantha who is 19 months. Laura added, “I am excited to work with all the directors during the school year to have them show off what they have to offer to families and children at the Y. I think by bringing them to the schools and demonstrating or discussing what the Y has to offer, we will enlighten some parents to the great opportunities for them!”
