About Mrs. Barber

Hi. I’m Melanie Barber. I enjoy baking, gardening, and working out. Enjoying the outdoors in State and National Parks is my favorite place to vacation.

My husband and I moved to the Valley over 30 years ago. We have 3 adult sons, each who attended SYVPPS. We found the preschool to be a great environment for early childhood education and development. As my children grew older I stayed at the preschool; I did not want to leave this wonderful place. I have been part of this preschool for more than 20 years, going from mom and Parent Board member to being a morning teacher’s aid, then a 3 years-old teacher. Currently I am a Co-Director and a 4 years-old teacher.

I enjoy teaching and getting to know the children. I love books and like working with the children creating their own books. I enjoy the creativity of children and helping them engage in dramatic play and exploring science and nature. I am grateful that at our Christian preschool I have the opportunity to share with the children that Jesus loves them and is always there for them.
