ABOUT TINY TYKES
JOHN JAQUISH - Owner
"Hello, I am John Jaquish; owner and Director of Tiny Tykes. I consider myself a Colorado native, seeing that I have lived in this beautiful State since the age of four.
I was raised and went to school in Nederland. From Nederland I went on to be a three sport athlete at Western State College (Football, Wrestling and Rugby). At WSC I earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree in K-12 education.
After college I jumped into the work force instead of completing my student teaching. One of the owners of a business for which I was providing nighttime security, also owned two large Child Care Centers in Boulder, CO. She was short staffed and, knowing my education background, asked if I would help out for a few weeks. A few weeks turned into a few years and, ultimately, a new Early Childhood Education Degree. I fell in love with teaching and playing with the little ones.
This experience gave birth to my dream to build and own a Child Care Center. I wanted to be able to pursue my passion, along with having a place where I could provide a safe, fun and educational experience for my children and yours!"
Congratulations to our class of '21!
Relive all of the moments and memories here.
Our teachers give your kids the love and education they need!
Ms. Shelly has been a teacher at Tiny Tykes since September of 2014. She started working at the early age of 16 at a greenhouse in Topeka, KS. She quickly realized that she had a passion for floral design and after graduation started working full time as a floral designer. After that, Ms. Shelly ventured into the cleaning industry and opened her own cleaning company in 1990, while working for a few local doctors cleaning and filing. In addition, Ms. Shelly was creating window displays and arrangements for a local interior designer’s shop called Marie’s A to Z. Ms. Shelly has two children, Heather and Tyler, and they are truly her greatest achievement in life. Since working at Tiny Tykes, Ms. Shelly knows she has found her true calling. She loves her job and thrives on the gratification she receives from the love and learning the kids show her.
