BONNIE TOTH

Director & 2's Teacher

My name is Bonnie Toth.  I am honored to serve as our school’s 2’s teacher and director.  I am a mommy to three amazing kiddos, wife to a very long-suffering husband, and teacher to adults and children alike. I am passionate about early childhood education.  I am also committed to being a life-long learner and frequently attend conferences and classes related to early childhood.  I hold a Bachelor's in Secondary Education, with an emphasis on Biological Sciences and a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction.

 

I believe that all people learn best when given a safe space, time, and support to grow. I am a Las Vegas native and enjoy all that our city and surrounding areas have to offer.  My family and I love camping, hiking, and all things outdoors!

 

I am excited to play, learn, and grow with you and your families!

LAURENAE ANDERSON

3's Teacher

A San Franciscan Bay Area native, Laurenae Anderson has educated tiny humans for 12 years. She and her family decided to move to Las Vegas in the summer of 2018 and she has found a home within the Co-Op. With well over a decade’s worth of experience working with children, and seeing the finish line with her AA with hopes of transferring to UNLV, she has a passion for introducing children to different experiences and tools that will prepare them for the next stages in their lives. Other than being well versed in play-based learning, Laurenae is also a mother of a 9-year-old who loves playing video games and reading Harry Potter novels, a wife to a computer science lover, and her furbaby Twix is her world. 

As an avid reader and all around art lover, Laurenae loves seeing her 3 year olds run throughout the co-op with blue paint from painting, and to see them sitting on the grass reading books that enrich their love for literature. She considers herself a lifelong learner and enjoys fantasy novels and Krispy Kreme donuts and aspires to enjoy the smiling faces, and loving families for many years to come.

REGINA TIPPETTS

4's Teacher

Welcome! My name is Regina Tippetts. My journey at the Co-op began in 2017 when my son started in the 2’s class. From the very beginning I realized what a special school we were part of. This created a desire for me to become a bigger part of the co-op and now I am very pleased to be the 4’s teacher! I have a Bachelor of Arts degree. I am nurturing, compassionate and eager to learn and grow. I am beyond excited to share the co-op experience with your family!



A little about me! My husband and our two kids love to spend time outdoors, camping and hiking. We also like playing games, watching movies and eating ice cream! My personal loves are working out, puzzles, and lots of cooking!

VICKY THOMPSON

Office Manager

Hi, my name is Vicky Thompson and I am the office manager at Kids’ Co-op.  I am an NAU graduate with a degree in business.  My husband Curt and I have been married for over 30 years and our son Matt was a Co-op kid.

I have been a part of Kids’ Co-op since 2000.  I started my Co-op journey as a parent serving as classroom coordinator and I was fundraising chair on the board of directors.  I taught the 2’s for several years and subbed numerous times in the 3’s and 4’s classrooms.

It is a privilege to be able to work with an amazing group of teachers and I enjoy working with the parents in their many roles at the Co-op.  I love seeing the joy on the children’s faces when they experience the mud bog for the first time or getting messy with goop.  I have been known to spontaneously join a circle or sit with the kids at snack.  And I love to give lots of hugs! The Co-op is an amazing place and I hope that you can begin your child’s education journey with us and experience the Co-op magic.
