Hello parents, my name is Miss Jasmine. I love children and love to help them learn new things. I am certified through the state in childcare and also have my CPR & First Aid.

Hello, my name is Amy Alfonso. I am currently attending school to obtain a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education. I am the oldest of my siblings and have been helping and teaching them for most of my life. This is one of the main reasons that eventually made me realize how much I enjoy spending time with and teaching kids. Also, I enjoy learning something new about them each day, and allowing them to teach me a thing or two along the way. Being a team member at BBLC is a very fulfilling job. I am passionate and in love with what I do, which is teach, care and nurture children.

Hello, I am a mother of 4 grown children and the grandmother of 2 rambunctious boys, ages 4 and 5. I will be assisting in the classrooms as needed. I enjoy children and am passionate about inspiring them to experience every part of their world, seeing everything as a new and interesting learning experience. Books are one of my passions and I enjoy teaching little ones about the joy and adventure that awaits them in every story. I believe every child has been given gifts that are to be discovered and nurtured. BBLC is a faith based learning center and I look forward to including this in my interaction with the children. I am currently working on the Childcare Training Courses required. I desire to be of help to you, as parents, so please let us know at BBLC of any specific ways we can assist your children in their learning experience.
