Thank you for taking the time to visit our website! My name is Brandy Trapp and I am the owner and lead teacher of Creative Minds Early Learning Center, a one-of-a-kind true play-based learning center in Lincoln, Nebraska. My dream is to change what is happening in the world of child care. I received my degree in Early Childhood Education (4.0 w/High Distinction), learning from some of the best instructors in early childhood education. I want to let children be little and
thrive with proper techniques, a child-led environment with teachers guiding and nurturing the learning process. As a mother of a school-age child, I feel that we need to wait to put our children in a structured classroom environment before they're ready.
Thank you for considering our center for your child's education.
Emma Lindsey is an Early Childhood educator who is dedicated to each child’s learning and developmental journey. She holds an associate degree in Early Childhood Education, graduating with both high distinction and numerous awards. Though every part of a child’s development is significant to her, Emma believes that each child’s social-emotional development and mental wellness is of the utmost importance. Because of this, Emma works tirelessly to meet children where they are as both people and as learners. When she isn’t teaching, Emma is working toward a bachelor’s degree at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, enjoying her time camping or visiting a museum, and perusing local thrift shops for her next great find.
My name is Chelsea Conway. I grew up in Alvo Nebraska, a small-town girl where I eventually moved to Lincoln Nebraska and I graduated from Geneva North High School. I have been in early childhood for the last 7 years working with all ages of children 6 weeks to 12 years of age. I love being in the early childhood field because nothing is better than knowing what you do each day has a real impact on the children, not only now but for the rest of their lives. I have 5 children of my own. When I am not taking care of my kids at work I enjoy spending time with my own children outdoors, doing arts and crafts, and going on unplanned road trips to endless destinations. I am excited to use my knowledge and experience to provide a safe and warm atmosphere for your child to learn and grow.
