Nursery Class - Infants and One-Year Olds
Tender, loving care in the nursery is given by two very warm, experienced and credentialed women named Julia Foxman and Tanya Kelly. Julia has been teaching since 1977 when she started at Gerber Children's Center. Presently she teaches at the Glendale Adventist Children Center which is affiliated with the Glendale Medical Center where she cares for infants as young as 6 weeks old. Julia has been with Neighborhood Church since 2000. She loves caring for the little ones and always has a big smile on her face.
Tanya worked as a teacher at Citrus College Development Center while studying Early Childhood Development. She has been involved with Neighborhood Church since 1994. Her children attended the FUN Group and the Youth Group. She taught Church Scool here and in the summer she taught the pre-school children during Vacation Bible School. In 1994 Tanya joined the teaching staff at Rolling Hills United Methodist Church Pre-school where she presently is teaching the three year old class.
Both Julia and Tanya love working in the Nursery caring for infants and toddlers and parents know that that their children are safe and nurtured. They are fingerprinted under the Department of Social Services (Title 22).
