Hello, my name is Robin Steele and I am the Children’s Ministry and Childcare Director at Parkside Christian Church and Daycare Center. I am married, I have 3 children, 2 are married and 1 is still at home which keeps us busy with extracurricular activities, and I have 4 grandchildren. I was born in Montana, grew up in California and now reside in Washington. Some of my interest outside of Childcare are spending time with family, reading, scrapbooking and baking.
I have been working at Parkside Christian Church and Daycare for 7 years. I have worked in Early Childhood for 25 plus years. I believe in teaching children at a very young age about the love and grace of God. As they continue to grow and develop a lasting Spiritual walk with Jesus and a strong foundation on the word of God.
I believe all kids deserve to have a safe educational environment to learn and grow in. In my travels through Early Childhood, and many years of experience children never cease to amaze me with their infinite styles of learning and development. It is always a new day with many experiences and questions to be answered. I consider it to be a great privilege to be a part of the children and their families.
