Faculty Bio

Debbie Nelsen is new to Covenant Christian preschool this year, but has been working with children even before her first job at Kay Nelson's Children's World in 1982. She is director qualified with 40 college credit hours, 17 of them in Early and Elementary education classes. Debbie is a mother of 3 wonderful children ages 28, 20, and 15. Her youngest son is a sophomore at Yorkville Christian High School. For the past 20 years Debbie has been providing childcare and preschool from her home in Yorkville with the help of a number of partners and aides through the years. With all of her experience and education Debbie has learned that the best things to do when presented with a situation that requires a solution is to press into the Lord. Through prayer she is guided in the care for the children in her class. Debbie is extremely excited to be a part of the wonderful Covenant Christian teaching team and looks forward to serving the families as if serving the Lord.
