Toddler One (ages 12 months- 2 yrs)


Aisha Thomas, Toddler One Lead Educator
I am a 2001 graduate from Lasell College. I have worked at The Barn since 1999 in the Younger Preschool room and throughout the center as a substitute. In my sophomore year, I completed my placement in the Toddler One room. I accepted a position as a Toddler One teacher in the spring of 2001. In 2003, I accepted the position of Toddler One Lead teacher. I am happy to be a part of the Toddler One team. I look forward to the coming year at The Barn, which I consider home.


Nikki Torday, Toddler One Educator
Before coming to the Barn, I had been living in NH for approximately seven years. Although working with children was not what I originally intended on doing after graduation, I have been working with young children for about seven years and love it. My experience with children is not only as teacher, but I also work as a youth advisor for middle and high school age children. I really enjoy the wide variety of ages. I graduated in 1998, with a bachelor’s degree from Franklin Pierce University. I am still very active at the University as part of their alumni association. I am very happy to be part of such a wonderful team at the Barn and I am looking forward to a great year.
