Leslie Granillo

Program Director

I began working in the child care field in 1996 & I have been with TTT since 1999. Conservation is important to me, so I encourage recycling & the use of recycled materials in the center. I hold a certificate in Early Childhood Education & received my AS degree in Child Development in 2013, graduating from Skyline College Magna Cum Laude.

I'm married & have two sons & a daughter. In my spare time I enjoy cheering on my kids in soccer & basketball, watching my daughter dance, crafting & gardening. I am CPR & First Aid Certified and hold a Site Supervisor permit from the California Commission On Teacher Credentialing.


Brigette Gauthier

Assistant Director

I started working with children in 1989 but took a break to start a family and be a stay at home mom. I volunteered at Ortega school for many years, in 2010 when a position opened up at TTT I jumped at the chance to get back into the field! It was the perfect way to get back to doing something I really enjoy and still be close to my kids who also attended Ortega at the time. I have taken classes at Skyline in Early Childhood Education and am still continuing my education.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my two kids, going to Blackberry Farm, watching football and attending Paint Nite's with my friends. I am CPR and First Aid Certified.


Amy Glines

Preschool Teacher

I have been working with children since 1996 when my twin sister and I started a babysitting business, I began working at TTT in 2006. I studied ECE at Skyline to work in a child care center. One day I would like to work with special needs children or in a special education classroom. I currently work mainly in our preschool program but do help out in the school age when needed.

I am married and in my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, cooking, baking, I play Bocce ball, and go to a lot of Giants games.

I am CPR and First Aid certified.

I started working with children in 2015 as a

babysitter. My mom always noticed I was good with kids and it grew into a passion the more I babysat and volunteered. This led me to go to school to become a teacher. I started working for TTT in 2021 and actually attended here when I was in Kindergarten!

I have 12 ECE units & continuing my education. In my spare time I love to bake, go hiking in new places and spend time with family and friends
