Hi, I’m Ms. Dolly. I have been a teacher at Creative Kids since February 2021. I am an engineer and management professional by training; but after a few stints in the IT industry, and later parenthood, I realized that my true calling is teaching. I love being with kids, guiding and nurturing them, and have been fortunate to be able to do that as a teacher for more than 2 years. Currently I am pursuing my CDA certification to strengthen my skills in Early Childhood Education. I live in Downingtown with my husband and my 13-year-old son. I love art, blogging, writing, traveling, movies and spending time with family and friends. I have published a novel- The Whispering Silence in 2018. I look forward to a great year with your child.

In my free time I enjoy baking, going for walks with my husband, traveling, and hanging out with my boys when they come to visit.

Hi! My name is Miss Taryn and I have been working with young toddlers at Creative Kids since 2019. I am an Early Childhood Education major obtaining my Associates from DCCC with plans to transfer to West Chester University for my Bachelors Degree in ECE. I am passionate about furthering my studies in child development and early education so that I can continue to strengthen my abilities as a caregiver and educator. I am dedicated to caring for all children in a loving and supportive environment, while also using every opportunity possible to promote learning and enhance all domains of their development. I believe that children learn best when they are being taught in a nurturing and inclusive environment and with a holistic approach to both their education and overall well-being. I have two children of my own, who are my entire world! Together we have a dog and two cats. As a family we love spending our summers in Cape May, and enjoy hiking and exploring local trails, and everything Disney! I look forward to welcoming you and your child into our classroom community and helping them transition from infancy to toddlerhood!

I have been around kids my entire life from teaching Sunday school to babysitting. I have a bachelor’s degree in Communications and am half through my MBA.

Genuinely speaking everyone here feels like family from the teachers, to the kids, to the parents.
