Staff Spotlight ~ Amanda Denham

Amanda Denham is one of our Toddler Time teachers. She started working at HFYH last year and has proven to be a great asset to our school.  She starts everyday with a contagious smile that can light up any room.  When you add Amanda with her co-teacher, Mrs. Lacey, they make everything in Toddler Time fun, silly, and totally organized.  Together they make a great team.  They are even known as #TEAMAWESOME.

Amanda grew up Evansville and lives here with her husband Joey and their three girls, Josie (8), Jesse (4), and Julian (3).  Her favorite place to be is at home spending time with her family.  In her spare time she loves to craft.  She especially enjoys making hair bows, paper crafts, and wall decor. 

Coffee and Jesus are the two things Amanda says she cannot live without.  At main campus, we joke about her coffee addiction often.  She also says some of her favorite things (besides coffee) are pizza, Target, and going to smokey mountains and the beach.

One thing for sure is Amanda has a true passion for our toddlers and truly loves them as her own.  She has such a servant heart to share her love for Jesus with them too.  She and Lacey work hard every week planning activities to help the toddlers learn more about the world around them.  We are so blessed to have Amanda at Home for Your Heart!

Fire Trucks Visit

Yesterday the Scott Township Fire and EMS came to visit HFYH. They went to Chapel Campus first to visit the Preschool and PreK students.  Each class had a small presentation from the firefighters about what to do if there is a fire in their house.  

The firefighter dressed up in his full gear to show the kids what a firefighter looked like if they had to come in their house for a fire.  He told them not to be afraid of the firefighter, but that they were there to help them and get them to safety. 

After the classes saw the firefighters, they went outside to visit the firetruck.  The students saw where all the hoses and equipment are located on the firetruck.  They also were able to climb up in the firetruck to see the inside too.

When all the Preschool and PreK classes were finished looking at the firetruck, the men and their firetruck went next door to Main Campus to see Toddler Time and Jumpstart.  This time they brought Sparky the dog with them to give hugs and high fives to the little ones.  

Toddler Time was able to ride in their wagon around the firetruck to see the big truck and it's equipment.  The Jumpstart students were able to climb up in the truck and see the inside.  

Before the classes headed back to class they had their picture taken in front of the big firetruck.

It was a beautiful day to have the firemen visit our school.  All the classes enjoyed learning more about the firemen and the firetruck.  If you would like to learn more about the Scott Township Fire and EMS or would like to see more pictures from yesterday, go to Scott Township Fire and EMS on Facebook.
