WHERE CHILDREN BECOME INSPIRED TO BE CREATIVE AND LEAD IN THEIR OWN LEARNING
Meet The Teacher
Hello, I'm Mrs. Tatina. I'm originally from the East Cost. I came to California as a teenager in 1989. I graduated Sweetwater Union High School and attended Southwestern College and Miramar College where I studied Child Development and Psychology. I stayed here rooted where I got married and raised a family.
I have experience as a Pre- K Teacher, Literacy Coach for adults as well as children. I have taught children from infancy to pre-teen. Sunday School & Children's Church Teacher.
I own and operate Creative Minds Daycare & Preschool , the CEO of Curriculum On The Move and Hooked on Reading Literacy Program. I decided to open my own Childcare & Preschool; because I wanted children to have the opportunity to learn in a variety of styles. I believe that having children immersed in a structured, diverse, and creative environment will assist in having independent thinkers in a pro-social environment.

Low Ratio: Individual attention is the best possible scenario for students. In depth learning and expanded lessons that reach every student become a reality in a small class. With a smaller ratio teachers have the opportunity to really know each student.
Teachers have time to teach them strategies that will help them learn today and prepare for the future. The quiet child in the corner is noticed and encouraged. There are fewer discipline problems in the classroom so less time is taken away from instruction.
Children learn to:
Develop Communication Skills,
Understanding Social Cues, Build friendships
Learning to Work with Others ,
Social interaction is one of the most important aspects of any child’s development. The benefits will have a lifelong effect on the child and by making sure that they are given a chance for social interaction early, it is ensured that the child will have a solid foundation for their social skills as they grow and eventually become an adult.
Yoga and mindfulness offer psychological benefits for children as well. A growing body of research has already shown that yoga can improve focus, memory, self-esteem, academic performance, and classroom behavior, and can even reduce anxiety and stress in children.
We like to create a few of our meals into the themes we are learning about. It is also a create way to introduce new foods.
