Nicole DeLia, M.S. has owned and operated Creative Hearts Daycare since 2013, and has greatly enjoyed being able to serve children and families in the community. She discovered her love of working with children in a variety of settings, including several years of prior experience as a preschool teacher, nanny, private piano teacher, Spanish teacher, face painter, swimming instructor, and lifeguard. 

Nicole has earned a Master's of Science Degree in Child Development from San Diego State University, in addition to earning a graduate level Early Childhood- Transdisiplinary Education and Mental Health Certificate (EC-TEaMH). These programs have enhanced her knowledge of teaching social and emotional skills to young children, which is of essential importance in setting the foundation to help prepare them for kindergarten. 

Nicole also earned a Bachelor degree in music, with her specialization being in vocal performance. She loves being able to share her passion of music with the children in care, offering a special program which includes singing and dancing with piano and guitar music. Additional education and training include Associates Degrees in Child Development, Psychology, and Spanish, Site Supervisor and Child Development Master Teacher Permits, a 100 Hour Home Daycare Training Certificate, a Training Certificate in Mindfulness for Children, in addition to training in CPR/First Aid and Preventative Health Practices. 

Creative Hearts Daycare has been blessed with many warm-hearted teachers and substitutes. Ms. Pramoda has been a wonderful co-teacher since 2016, and has been a very positive and supportive influence on the children in care. Ms. Kendra and Ms. Stephy have been substitute teachers since 2015 and the children are always so delighted to see them whenever they come to visit. All staff have passed a thorough background check, and have been thoroughly trained in safety procedures and teaching skills to provide quality care for the children that they serve.
