Ms. Molly started at Fairyland in the summer of 2019. She moved to Utah from Connecticut in 2017 with her boyfriend, dog, and a plan of staying for only six months. Two years later, she is still in Utah and has no intention on leaving any time soon. When she is not at Fairyland, you can find her wondering the woods or skiing at Alta.

Molly graduated in 2014 with a BA in Theatre Performance from Marymount Manhattan College. All throughout her schooling, she has been involved with childcare in some capacity. In school, she took extra classes focused on child development, volunteered at The Boys and Girls club, and nannied for multiple families through the years. She is continuing her education by taking classes sponsored by Care About Childcare and is excited to be starting the journey of obtaining her CDA (Child Development Associate).


Ms. Breanna lives in Draper, Utah with her husband Daniel and their newborn daughter Avery.  Breanna was born in Medford, Oregon on August 30th. She is the oldest of four kids. When Breanna was younger her family moved a lot, which sparked joy for traveling, shopping and spending time with friends and family.

All throughout school Breanna was always curious about the little minds and the development of children. When she got into high school, she took child development courses and won first in state at a Family, Career and Community Leaders of America Conference. Breanna graduated in 2015 with an honors diploma and a certificate in Early Childhood Education. Breanna is the first graduate in her family. Breanna worked as a preschool teacher for 3 years at a center in Draper. Breanna started at Fairyland Family Child Care in 2017. Breanna absolutely loves teaching preschool and is working towards earning her CDA (Child Development Associates) this fall.

 


Ms. Kamryn lives in Cottonwood Heights and recently started at Fairyland this August. She grew up in Spanish Fork and has lived in Utah for her entire life. She currently goes to the University of Utah and is studying Information Systems and Finance at their school of business, and she is minoring in public health promotion. She has always wanted to be a business owner and has a strong interest in nutrition and healthy lifestyles.

Her favorite things to do in the summer are travelling, going boating and camping with family and friends. During any time of the year she loves to be outdoors and enjoys hiking with her two dogs. She has a strong love for animals and has volunteered at both the Humane society and Best Friends here in Salt Lake.  Once she graduates college, she would love to continue a career in child care, specifically focused on nutrition and developing healthy relationships.
