Meet our amazing office staff.
Kylie is married to her husband Jeremy, and together they have 4 wonderful boys, (11/9/8/5). They also have an adorable pet bearded dragon named Dobby and a golden retriever named Belle! Her life at home is filled with (lots of noise!) all things superheroes, and Disney. Kylie is a huge kid at heart!
Kylie comes to VCP with an expansive background in both the educational and nonprofit sectors. Kylie received her Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Multnomah University. She was the owner and Director of Cherry Tree Preschool in Hillsboro, Oregon for 4 years before founding and operating a nonprofit called the Capes & Crowns Foundation in 2015. She is very passionate about serving children and families from all backgrounds by creating a nurturing, safe, and loving environment where they can truly thrive and grow into the amazing humans they are destined to be.
Danielle was born in New Jersey, just outside NYC. She attended the State University of NY at Cortland and graduated with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education. She went on to work in the Human Resources industry for 10 years at corporate fashion companies; including Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger and Esprit. Danielle’s education and previous corporate background provides her with the valuable skills and experience to be successful in both her teaching and her administrative roles at VCP.
Danielle lives in Portland with her husband and their two children; her daughter Riley, and her son Dylan. Both Riley and Dylan are graduates of Valley Christian Preschool. “We loved Danielle so much, we didn’t let her leave us when her children graduated!”

Adorable puppy extraordinaire
Meet Belle! She is our school puppy who spends her days at school lounging and playing in the office. After school and on weekends, she goes home with Ms. Kylie and her family! She is a sweetheart who loves to play and meet new friends. While she would love to go inside the classrooms, we make sure she stays in the office with us since allergies or fears may be present in the classrooms.
