We are here to help Educate, Nurture, and Love

  • Brenda Thieme -Assistant Director

    I have 2 young adult children and a wonderful husband. I love Jesus foremost and I am very thankful for all of his blessings!  It is my utmost desire to serve him and share his love with others! I love doing crafts, being outdoors in nice weather, reading, and eating all kinds of cheese ๐Ÿ˜‹. Most of all I love children and seeing them learn and grow!

    I have spent about 30 years teaching or working with children of all ages.  I have been a children's pastor, preschool director/teacher, beginner gymnastics teacher, and an elementary teacher. For a little I was known as Huggins the clown and spent time with puppets! I have a pastoral license to peach, teacher N to 3 certification in PA, NJ - k to 6 cert, and a Masters in E.C. education.

  • Justine Montalvo-  Administrator

  • Elicia Gans - Turtles Lead Teacher (Toddlers) 

    I am an Early Childhood Education major at Delaware County Community College. I love working with children and have been since 2014.  I came to Trinity in 2018 and have enjoyed teaching the kids fun science experiments and having crazy dance parties.  I can't wait for another amazing year.

  • Brian Carlson - frog's lead teacher (Preschool)

    I graduated from West Chester University in 2019 with a degree in Professional Studies. After transferring from my home state of Maine where I studied Music Education, I minored in Professional Education and Music. My hobbies include writing and performing music, as well as collecting instruments and anything โ€œnerdโ€ related.

    I've been teaching children for over a year since graduation, and I cannot wait to be able to continue sharing knowledge, wisdom, and a passion for learning to my students, all the while they continue to teach me about education and life.

  • Alex Draper - busy bee lead teacher (Kindergarden prep)

    I learned from raising my own children Graham and Isabella that a loving, nurturing, safe and inquisitive environment is ideal for a strong foundation for the rest of their academic lives. I always want a love of learning to last their entire lives and I feel that starts early on. Some of my favorite times with the children are when we are doing science and nature related activities, watching them form friendships with each other and expressing their creativity and personalities through art and dramatic play.

  • I was born in South Africa & moved to the USA almost eight years ago. After working as a child care provider for over twenty years I decided to pursue a career in childcare since kids give me the greatest joy in life! I have two wonderful daughters and two beautiful grandsons.
