Kiddie College Staff

  • Kathi STARK


    My name is Kathi, I've been with Wesleyan Kiddie College since November 19, 2016, but have been the director since December 17, 2018. I live in Ramona, Oklahoma with my husband of 26 years. We have a 24 year old son who is now married and has a family of his own. My family is my biggest support; they push me to be the best at everything I do. I have my Oklahoma Director's Credential, Child Development Associate, and my Certificate of Mastery. I am also attending Tulsa Community College and will graduate with my associate's in Early Childhood Education in 2021. I have been working with young children for 23 years, with 3 years being at Kiddie College. Working for a Christian based facility is one of the most rewarding jobs I've ever had. I feel that my dedication to new growth and strong Christian base foundation is equally matched by all my wonderful staff and by all the upper leadership that surrounds Wesleyan Kiddie College and First Wesleyan Church.

  • Dannyelle FUgate

    Teacher (1-2 YEar Olds)

    My name is Dannyelle Fugate; most people call me Danny. I work in the Butterfly classroom. I love working with children because I love to watch them learn and meet their developmental goals. I love working in a Christian environment because I want to see and help each child play and learn about our God. I'm excited to be able to help each child learn about God. I am 20 years old and have lived in Bartlesville, OK all my life. I went to Bartlesville High School and graduated in 2017. I also went to Tri County Tech in 2015-2017 of high school and got my CDA and earned many other certificates. Since I got my CDA, I have worked in child care for going on 2 1/2 years. I have worked with many ages between 0-7 years old. I prefer the younger children the most. I go to church at Pentecostal Tabernacle here in Bartlesville and have been going there since I was very little with my great-grandma. In a few months, I will start trying to get back into school for my Masters in Early Education and become a better teacher for child care. My goal to become a better teacher is for me to be more educated in brain and physical development. As a teacher, I am very organized, patient and understanding to each child, and very kindhearted. I love being crafty and make other gifts. I love to spend my weekends with family and friends and love going to church. I'm very excited to see what God has planned for me in the future.
