Ms. Nikki

Preschool Director

Hello Everyone! I have worked in the field of Early Childhood Education for over 28 years. Some of my first students have families of their own. (geez I feel old!) Education and working with children have always been my passion. I have been very blessed to have a career where I am excited to go to work every day. I began my journey as a classroom aide and have held every position imaginable when it comes to working with children. I started at Creative Learning Center in 2014 when we opened our doors. I left on an adventure to Eugene, Oregon which led me to Leavenworth, Kansas to work as a teacher at Fort Leavenworth with the Army and supporting military families far from home. I was asked to come back to my dream job at CLC in May of 2018. Everyday has been an adventure and with it brought many changes. Thank you to all the families for allowing me the opportunity to work with you and your children. I am looking forward to the growth and experiences in our future.

Ms. Christina

Teacher

My name is Ms. Christina. I am the Lead Teacher in the Butterfly classroom (2’s). For the last three and half years, I have been working with young children. Before becoming a part of the CLC team, I worked at an in home child care center in Fallbrook where I live. Working there was just a job at first. Then I realized how much I really enjoy working with children and seeing them develop. Now, I see education as a career. There is something about watching children learn and grow that makes every day rewarding.

Working with children has always been my passion, as a teenager and the eldest of my siblings I often helped my parents take care of my brother and sister. I believe that every child is naturally creative because their imagination has no limits. This job is very pleasing to me, because it brings out the inner child in me and I enjoy every moment.
