Child Care Business Coach & Director

Tasha Santistevan is a Child Care Business Coach for The Child Care Success Company. She has 30 years of experience in the child care industry. She began teaching preschool at Child Time Inc. in 1994 and fell in love with the company because of its dedication to high-quality child care. She went on to become a Center Director for the next nine years. This was one of her favorite jobs! She loved building an amazing team, promoting thriving school-family relationships, and doubling student enrollment.

Her journey into this field began with a love for children. However, she soon found that she had a passion for training and mentoring teachers. That passion eventually grew into helping directors become effective ECE leaders rather than managers. Tasha has served as the Executive Program Director at Child Time Inc. since 2007. Having several of her teachers promoted to director and regional director positions has been one of the most rewarding aspects of her career.

In 2016, Tasha attended her first Child Care Success Company event. Soon after, Child Time Inc. joined the academy. After years of attending mediocre conferences and training sessions for ECE professionals, Tasha felt that the Child Care Success Company was a godsend! She loves that members are constantly pushing themselves and each other to grow. Her favorite thing about being part of the Child Care Success Academy is the community! She has gained many mentors and lasting friendships.

Tasha lives in Salt Lake City, Utah. She has been married to Mark, her high school sweetheart, for 30 years. They have five amazing sons and four grandchildren whom they are very proud of. She loves being a mother and spending time with her family! She enjoys watching her boys play hockey, mountain biking, hiking, and road trips. Tasha is a self-proclaimed personal development junkie and strongly believes in the power of setting goals. Her favorite quote is, “The state of your life is nothing more than a reflection of your state of mind.” – Wayne Dyer
