About Us

Director's Welcome


I spent nearly 44 years of my life in Michigan, growing up on a beef farm. After getting married and having five kids, my husband Tony and I continued that lifestyle with our own little longhorn cattle farm. Our family includes our children Devin, Audrey, Francis, Doris and Shaenelda. I'm also Grammy to my grandson Ernie. Adding to our lively household are two dogs, Fern and Mable, and a cat named Carl.

My journey at BKA began in 2021 as a part-time teacher. After a few months, I felt a strong sense that God was nudging me to do more. So, I made the decision to quit my daytime job and transitioned to daycare full time. I quickly took charge, revamping each room to function more smoothly for both the children and the staff. I've always had a passion for caring for children, having had the privilege of staying home with my own. With a deep understanding of child development, my philosophy has always been love first. This job truly is the best in the world. Thank you for allowing us to love and cherish the most precious things in your lives!

Our Values


Jesus is the Center

He is the purpose and reason behind everything we do.

Love All People

We love people without restriction or reservation.

Strive for Excellence

We put everything we have into what we do, understanding we're ultimately working for Him.

Be Positive

We believe that a life for Christ is lived with joy, which is something we seek regardless of the season.

Get in the Game

The church is only on a mission if everyone is playing their God-given part.




As an extension of Bridge Church, our preschool embraces the principles of love, compassion and inclusivity. We strive to create a space where children feel a sense of belonging and discover the joy of learning through age-appropriate activities and play. With a focus on both educational excellence and spiritual growth, Bridge Kidz Academy is not just a daycare – it's a community where families come together and little ones embark on a journey of discovery guided by the teachings of love and faith. We welcome you to explore our programs and join us in nurturing the hearts and minds of the next generation.
