Preschool Teachers

Brenda Bates

My name is Brenda Bates and I have been with TLC since 1991. I taught in the toddler classroom for 13 years before moving up to Preschool. I earned my CDA from Manor College in 2010 and I am currently working on my Associates Degree at Bucks CCC. I believe that children best through play. I try to guide their play to add learning opportunities as much as possible. I also feel children need lots of fresh air and sunshine and learn through exploring the world around them hands on.

Miss Tyleyia

My name  is Tyleyia. After graduation high school, I started working at TLC. Since starting at TLC I have completed my Child Development Associates.

I enjoy playing with each child. A few things I really like to do with the kids are Zumba and party line dances! Party line dances are “The Nae Nae”, “Crank that” by Soulja Boy and “The Hokey Pokey” to name a few! I want to see the children engage and encourage each other to participate in the dances. I want to inspire them by having the children dance freely, have fun, and come out of their shell and not worry about how they are dancing!

I bring board and card games for the kids from my home. I teach the children how to follow the directions and learn how to cooperate with each other. I love to see the kids interact with the game and with each other!

Miss Vanessa Kesen

I began working at TLC in 2018.  I graduated from Emmaus High School and Lehigh Career & Technical Institute where I participated in Early Care & Education Of Young Children for 2 years.  I look forward to my continued education in the field of early education as I pursue a degree in the field.  Being an early childhood educator has been my dream job since I can remember. I loved participating in the childcare center in high school and adored being able to teach children with activities they like and think are fun.  I enjoy working with children and I’m so excited to be helping teach the children new and exciting things each and every day!
