Wee Care Office Staff

Katie Jones

I have been a part of the Wee Care Family my entire life. I went to preschool here when I was young and have some of the most amazing memories from my time here as I child. My family has been a part of Fellowship for as long as I can remember and so it only seemed natural that I would get a job with Wee Care while I was in High School. I started working as an afternoon teacher when I was 17 and found myself working in the Enrollment Specialist position by the time I was 20. After graduating from Florida State University the position for Director became available. God made very clear to me that this was the path He was asking me take. This place is home to me and the people are my family. While we may not have the most up to date toys or the fanciest facility, we will love your babies and teach them about their Savior who loves them.   

Rebecca Studard
Assistant Director

I am Rebecca Studard and I have lived in Tallahassee for 14 years and have worked at Wee Care for 10 of those years. My husband and I have two amazing boys who attend Wee Care. I love being the Assistant Director because I am able to get to know and love all of the children and their families.

Sarah Abarbanel
Enrollment Specialist

My name is Sarah, and I was born and raised in Tallahassee! I have been working in this field for 19 years, the past 12 of those at Wee Care.  I started out teaching the 4’s and VPK, and I am currently the Enrollment Specialist. The thing I love most about this job is watching children become engaged and get really excited about learning! My husband and I have 2 daughters, a 3 year old who currently attends Wee Care and a 12 year old who is a Wee Care graduate. I enjoy going to the beach, spending time with my family and friends and watching college football. Go Noles!

Jesus Christ is enough for me!

This will be my 6th year working at Wee Care! I have studied Early Childhood Education and have worked with children of all ages.

Susan Pye

I started working with young children in 2001 and have 7 years of experience working as a VPK teacher. As educators it is our responsibility to stimulate all parts of the brain by offering multiple learning opportunities on a daily basis. I understand no two children are the same so it’s important to treat each child as an individual while still treating them equally.

Tanisha Gibson

I have worked at Wee Care for 7 years and with all ages! Once I earned my A.A Degree in Early Childhood Education I began teaching VPK and that has been so rewarding! I am excited to continue to educate young children and help them as they prepare for Elementary School. I am continuing my education and will soon earn my Bachelors degree!

Peggy Daniels

I have been working in child care for 23 years and have worked with all ages. I recently moved over to an assistant position which I love because I get to spend time with all the children! I feel so blessed to work in such a rewarding career and I am looking forward to many more years in child care.
