My Name is Nichole Bertsch. I have worked with Broomfield Early Learning for 15 years. I started out as a preschool aide and discovered my passion was teaching. I have been the Preschool Director for 7 years and recently moved up to a Youth and Teen Coordinator. My position now as a Youth and Teen Coordinator gives me the opportunity to help all of the children in our program. I am married with two children, a 16-year-old boy, and a 14-year-old girl. We also have three Shiba-Inus.

My name is Danielle. I was born and raised here in Colorado. My husband and I have two daughters, a great dane (who thinks he is a puppy), and a cat (who thinks she is a dog). My family and I enjoy getting outside to enjoy what our beautiful state has to offer as well as going to festivals. We also love to travel and explore new places.

 I have been working as a teacher with the Broomfield Early Learning Program since 2019; however, I have worked with Broomfield City’s Children programs since 2013. I love working with children.  My favorite part of teaching is watching the student's personalities blossom throughout the year as they foster friendships with their peers. 

CaraRaffertyBRM-5817 (1)Hi, my name is Cara Rafferty. This is my second year teaching at Broomfield Early Learning. I have also volunteered with the STEAM Destination Imagination program for over ten years, teaching children from elementary through high school about creativity, problem-solving, and teamwork. I am currently working towards a degree in Early Childhood Education as well. We are all lifelong learners, and there's never a wrong time to learn something new! My husband and I are both native Coloradans, and we have two awesome kids aged 10 and 7, along with our cat, Lucy, and our dog, Charlie. I spend my limited free time crafting, knitting, crocheting, and playing board games with my family.
I look
 forward to helping your children learn, grow, and discover!
Nicole e
Hello, My Name is Nicole, and I am a preschool Instructor. This year marks my 20 years of working with young children. I have worked for the City and County of Broomfield for almost a year. 
I moved to Colorado 7 years ago. I have lived in Broomfield for two years. I enjoy spending time with my family playing video games, board games, or sports! I love teaching, and It helps that I'm a big kid myself, but I truly believe what everyone preaches, the first 5 years of a child's life, are most important. I enjoy being a part of those first 5 years.
