Nursery Staff

Ms. Astrid

My name is Astrid Blanco. I have been working the church nursery for over seven years. I have been working with children for more than ten years. I have been a member of the church since August 2008 after working with the children. I saw how they grow in faith and that is what inspired me to become a member.
Our Mission is to have a safe and nuturing environment for the children and parents. And also to teach our youngest children about God’s great big love for them and to build a relationship with them.

Ms. Esther

My name is Miss Esther Treto and this is my second year as a part-time child-care aide. Previously, I was a tutor and I volunteered for the Title I Migrant Education Program which assisted students that attended Mandarin Lakes K-8 and the other schools in the Homestead area.
I have begun working towards my degree in Exceptional Student Education; I plan to graduate from Miami Dade College with my bachelor’s degree. I am an outgoing person and love working with children. I believe children should start early to prepare themselves for an educational setting.
I work with in nursery care for children usually from 0 months to three years old, either in the morning or the afternoon. As part of the team, I play an important role in helping children to learn about the wider world, develop their social and learning skills and prepare them to move on to the older classes. I also work closely with parents and caregivers, keeping them up-to-date on a variety of issues to make sure that their children enjoy a fun, safe and caring environment.
