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 Alex

Hello!  My name is Alexandra and I am excited to be a part of the TLC Child Care staff.  I am from Venezuela where I studied Preschool Education and worked as an auxiliary teacher for a number of years.  I also became certified in Yoga studies, which I applied to my career with children.  I really enjoyed organizing lesson plans that incorporate yoga, games, music and art.   I moved to the US over two years ago and began working as a nanny for two children in Texas.  I also lived in California for a while before moving to Pennsylvania with my husband this year.

I belong to the Foundation of The Art of Living where I trained and volunteered, teaching breathing techniques to children to help them eliminate stress and manage negative feelings and emotions.  I also focused on teaching human values. It is such a great Non-Governmental organization that is present in more than 150 countries.  I have unconditional love for children and animals and am really looking forward to getting to know your children this year.  I do not speak perfect English but I’m learning.  I am so happy to be working once again in a professional field with young children!
