My name is Tina and I am from Bulgaria. I work as the kindergarten assistant.

I take care of the kitchen and cleaning and help the teachers with the children.

I like to see how our kids grow up and how they change through the years.

It makes me proud to be a part of the process of raising our kids to be ready to go to school.

Hi, my name is Tommy Paige, and I'm a practical nurse and assistant director at Fountain Square Playschool.


I've been in the early childhood education field since 2011, and l've had the privilege of working with children in a variety of settings, including preschools and childcare centers.


As a practical nurse, l'm responsible for helping children develop their creativity, social skills, and problem-solving abilities through music, art, gym and play.


I take pride in providing a safe and nurturing environment for children to learn and grow, and I'm committed to creating meaningful connections with each child and their families.


In my free time, I enjoy playing music, photography, astronomy and spending time with my own family, who inspire me every day to continue making a positive impact in the lives of young learners.


Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about me, and I look forward to connecting with you soon.
