Braxton Gilder

Toddler Teacher

I am 18 years old and I graduated from Mulberry High School.  I have always loved to be around children. I have always wanted to work with children, because when I was in 5th grade I was a kindergarten helper, so I would watch the younger children in the morning before class started. I am a Toddler Teacher and I love coming into work because I get to see the smiles on their faces.

Ms. Sydney

Sydney Gant

2-3 Year Old Teacher

My name is Sydney. I was born in Brandon, FL but raised here in Mulberry. I have two very wonderful babies of my own and they are the light in my life. My daughter’s name is Kyndal and her “not so little” little brother is Michael Jr. I have always had a passion for children. I remember being close to 8 years old and my neighbors little boy would always come over to our house or vice versa....at the time he was a cute-talking, wobbly and spunky 1 year old. From then to now, being almost 24, that has always been my favorite age. They are so radiant and spirited. Everything is brand new but they learn so fast. They absorb everything that is taught to them and yet they find ways to teach me too. I am blessed to say that my one year old classroom is my second home and working with them is so rewarding in many different ways


Cheyenne Ussery

3 Year Old Teacher

Hi my name is Cheyenne I have a handsome little boy and I have one on the way. I have been working with Just 4 Kids Preschool since Nov. 29, 2017. I love working with children and want to further my education in Child Care. When I am not working with children I love to spend time with my son and my family. The thing I love about working with children the most is watching them grow up and see how they learn and start to recognize things they didn't before like their colors, shapes, and ABC,s.
