If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up. Daniel 3:17,18
“Even if He does not, He is still good – To me this verse serves as a reminder that although we make plans for ourselves, those aren’t always what God his for us. So, even when our plans aren’t the reality, He is and will remain good.” -Maranda

Personal Information

Hi, I’m Maranda. I work with four-year-olds in our VPK B classroom with Ms. Patti. I love spending everyday working to get our students ready for kindergarten. See them learn new things everyday, whether it’s academic, social/emotional or about Jesus, those are the moments that really make each day worth it. 

Currently I attend Plant City Church of God with my family including my niece and nephews. 

In my free time I enjoy spending time with the people who mean the most to me including my boyfriend, siblings, niece and nephews and of course Jesus himself.

What I love about God's Garden:

At God’s Garden, it’s not just the generic “we’re a family” talk that most employers give. Here you truly feel the love of Christ through each and every staff member you cross paths with. And because of that, every child we serve gets the same love for Jesus shared with them.

My fun fact about God's Garden:

Our staff could probably single-handedly keep CFA Valrico in business.

What Parents Say...


Love this school!

Both my boys go to this school and I love everything about it!


Nothing better out there!

I could go on and on about how much we LOVE this preschool! My little girl is always so excited to go and runs right up to all the teachers and staff when she gets there (which makes it a little easier on her momma and daddy to leave her) She is learning new things daily and is talking up a storm about all her friends! Can't wait for her brother to join her next year! ♡♡♡


The Best Preschool

I know our baby is in the most nurturing hands and our 4 year old is so excited everyday to get to go here!
