At Brenna's Place, we take pride in what we do. As a mother, I know how hard it is to leave your child for the day. That is why we don't operate like a typical daycare. Each child is given the love and care they deserve. You won't have to worry about your child getting lost in the shuffle. While you are at work, you can be sure that your child is receiving the same amount of attention that they’d be getting if you were at home! Come and see the difference!”

Our Staff

Meet Our Owner:

Judy Barch and her husband, John, are the owners of Brenna's Place. Judy has over 25 years of experience with children including time spent as a YMCA childcare worker, a before/after school caregiver with Highlands School District and Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament School, and as a private nanny. Judy is a life-long resident of Natrona Heights, and is the proud mother of Matt, Ben, Cindy and Jill.

A word from Judy: I am very lucky to work with three wonderful women. I consider these women great friends, two of whom I have known for 20 years. I have only known our director for three years, but it seems like many more. We each bring something different to the daycare, and that makes it a special place. Let me introduce you to the staff.

    Nichole has been with Brenna's Place since its opening. She received her degree in Early Childhood Development from Kaplan University. Over the past 5 years, Nichole has worked with preschool children in many capacities, including serving as toddler supervisor at a local daycare, the YMCA after school program, and YMCA summer camp. Nichole and her husband, Jeremy, are the proud parents of Aurora, who is in Kindergarten.
