Brenda Harju, TLC Preschool Director and Lead Teacher

   Brenda received her Bachelor’s Degree from CSU in Social Work and minored in Early Childhood Education.  She later completed additional credits to receive her Director Certification from the State of Colorado.

  Brenda has been an Early Childhood Director for over 15 years and has been employed at TLC Preschool since 2005.  Brenda and her husband have one son.

   Brenda believes strongly in early childhood education in the best possible environment – one that is warm, nurturing and FUN!  She also believes that a Christian setting is an ideal place for the growth and development of young children, as it focuses on the heart and soul of a child in order to teach them values that are as important in their lifetime as knowing letters and counting.
