Angie Denton,
Preschool Lead Teacher

My name is Angie Denton. I am originally from Canada. My husband, Ronnie and I have been married for twenty-one years, and have a fourteen year old son, Trent. I have been in the Early Childhood profession for twenty years. I have been with the APSU Child Learning Center for seventeen of those years. Through Early Childhood Education classes through Tennessee Early Childhood Training Alliance, and Nashville State Community College, I have earned my CDA Credentials, (Child Development Associate),  in Infant-Toddler, as well as Preschool. This past summer, I earned my Technical Certificate from Nashville State Community College.  Presently, I am working on my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education. Yearly trainings, workshops and seminars provide information about regulation changes and updated materials to help me provide a fun, safe, loving and healthy learning environment. I strongly believe in the Child Learning Center’s philosophy that children learn through play.  I appreciate working in a center that believes what I believe. “We cater to the business of children and the business of children is play!" Play is the avenue for children to learn best.
