Meet our Little Angels Team

The Owner

Laura Perkins

The Director

Kristin Tamblin 

I live in Santa Rosa with my family, Taylor & Trevor are my two sons and I am married to my husband, Adrian. I have been the director of Little Angels for the past 13 years when my boys first started here. Over the years, I have loved working with children and their families and watching them grow and develop. I have my Bachelors Degree from Sonoma State University. As a young child, I always dreamed about being a Mom and teacher. Both my Mom and Dad were in the field of education and have always encouraged and inspired me to fulfill my passion for young children. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you. I am always here for families anytime to communicate. 

Lead Teachers

  • Jennifer Ward

I live in Santa Rosa with my husband of 30 years. I have two grown children. My son Blake is married and a practicing attorney in San Francisco. My daughter Veronica is the Mother of my beautiful 3 year old granddaughter Delainey. Veronica is currently attending school at Northern Idaho college. I’m a very proud Mom! 

I have been teaching Pre-K for a little over 25 years. I have been teaching at Little Angels for 13 of these years. I find so much joy watching the children in my care grow and flourish. Children are so naturally curious and I enjoy seeing the world through their eyes and nurturing their sense of wonder. I not only want to prepare children for their formal education academically, but socially and emotionally as well. My goal is to provide a positive learning environment, through curriculum, structure, hands on learning, a little silliness 😊, and a lot of love. ❤️

  • Jessie Wetmore
Welcome! I have had the pleasure of working with the Little Angels team for over 5 years and have been teaching young children for 8 years now. I was born and raised here in Sonoma County and my favorite hobbies include oil painting, gardening, and camping with my boyfriend and our dog, Swayo. 
I studied Early Childhood Education at SRJC and received my Bachelor's Degree from Sonoma State University. I love incorporating natural elements into the classroom and I have a serious passion for Montessori and Maria Montessori's philosophy. I use a lot of those materials in my classroom and try to give children a wide variety of activities to do that will challenge them, while also giving them a chance to master those practical life and social skills. I can't wait to meet your child and family! 

Afternoon Staff

Debbie Elliot

Hi! I'm Ms. Debbie. I have 45 Early Childhood Education units and have worked in other fields such as Certified Nursing Assistant and a housecleaner. I started working at Little Angels back in 2013. Before working here, where the kids are the most loveable preschoolers ever, I have subbed at many schools. I thought about retiring after owning my own "Debbie's Daycare" for over 16 years, but I just couldn't stay away from the little ones. I have been an afternoon teacher and substitute teacher here ever since. Looking forward to spending time with your child!
