Salisbury

SALISBURY – Tonya Roussis is the new director of the Housatonic Child Care Center (HCCC).

Actually, she’s not that new, having started the job on Nov. 28, 2016.

Roussis ran a home day care in North Canaan for 10 years, and then was the head teacher at the Canaan Child Care Center for nine years.

When the HCCC job opened up, she decided it would be the next logical step in her career.

Roussis said she plans to have more community involvement with HCCC.

“We’re going to get the community in here and the kids out there.”...
