Assistant Director

Tracy has been working in childcare for 25 years and absolutely loves it! She has years of experience working one-on-one with toddlers and preschoolers in the classroom. She came to work at Castle Creek when it opened in August of 2010. She attended Leary Technical where she earned her CDA in Child Development. She feels as a parent, you lay the foundation for your child’s faith at an early age. You take them to church, read them Bible stories, and teach them how to pray.  Knowing that your child is in a place that shares your values will give you peace of mind.
