Tanya Abea

Director

My name is Tanya Abea and I am delighted to be joining the Rancho Cordova site as a Director. I have my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education from Canada College and my Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Adolescence from San Francisco State University.

I began my journey as an early childhood educator over 12 years ago at Building Kidz as an infant teacher, then move on to working with toddlers, and subsequently in a preschool classroom.  Once I became a mother to two wonderful children, I began my journey as an administrator working as an Assistant Director then as the Director of the center. My oldest son Angel is 3 years old and my youngest Elena is one year old.  Working with children has always been a passion of mine and seeing children’s creativity expand, their minds turn as they solve puzzles, and helping them reach different milestones make my days fulfilled.

Working in this field for many years now, I have grown connections with many families, and I have stayed connected to them throughout the years.  I love watching their children grow and enter kindergarten, elementary and middle school knowing that the years under my care serve as the foundation to their higher educational journey.  I hope we can build a partnership and relationship together that can help foster your child’s growth to become successful in life.
