Colleen Wall

Colleen Wall serves as our Child Care Coordinator at Thundering Tots Preschool and Child Care Lab.

Collen Wall was born in American Fork, Utah.  She has basically lived in a square mile her entire life.  The things that she enjoys the most in life is her family.  Growing up she had 3 brothers and 1 sister, the youngest being twins which were born when she was 6 years old.  This is where her love for young children began.  She has been married for 22 years and has been blessed with a great husband and 3 wonderful sons.  He sons are 21, 19, and 18.  Her youngest son is severely autistic, which has opened her eyes to a whole new world.

Before Collen had her children, she always wanted to be a kindergarten teacher, but after having her youngest son she realized quickly that she needed to be at home.  She went back to school at UVU and earned a certificate in Early Childhood Education/Family Studies and opened my own preschool--the Little Red Preschool.  SHe operated the preschool for 15 years, but with the enconomy down, she decided to change course.  That is when she took a job working in Alpine School District at Westlake High School in our on-site Child Care Lab.  She loved working with the children here in the program.

In her spare time, she loves collecting antiques, quilting, gardening, and going to movies.  She has also taught piano lessons since she was 16 and still has a few students, which she also enjoys.  She would love to be able to travel more and see more of the world.  She was able to go to Hawaii 2 years ago with her husband and has now caught "Island Fever" and can't wait to go back.

She is very excited to get to know the children & the parents better this coming year.  She is also excited to get to know high school students that will get the opportunity to help assist in the Child Care Lab.  We are very excited to have her on our team.
