Gerry Pastor has been involved in the Early Childhood Education field for over 35 years. Having started, grown, and successfully operated a leading childcare company in Connecticut alongside his wife, Jane Porterfield, they sold their 20 schools in 2019 and thought they would retire. And they did for a year! However, they quickly realized they wanted to continue their lifelong commitment to providing exceptional programs for young children and their families and started up again with the creation of The Nest Schools in 2020. Gerry and Jane look forward to growing The Nest Schools across the country and creating a new standard of excellence for the future of early education and preschool.
