Our Staff

Meet our Family!

Yolanda Fanniel

Founder & Teacher

After working in the pediatric field for over 20 years, Yolanda decided to further pursue her love of working with children by opening Precious Years On Crosby in 2005. Since then she continues to expand and improve the day care with each passing year while remaining passionate in nurturing the remarkable growth of children during the precious beginning of their lives. It is her mission to help all those who walk through PYOC's doors and she considers everyone as a part of our family. She is proud of the growth of not only the day care but of each child who progresses through and beyond PYOC.

Temia Jones

Director & Teacher  

This year the torch of Precious Years On Crosby Director is being passed to Temia and she is thrilled to continue fulfilling our mission while also expanding our vision. Her goal is to fortify the growth in our children during these precious beginning years by implementing healthy habits throughout all aspects of our care. From the way we eat, to the way we communicate, to the way we learn and play, she wants every PYOC kid to be a Super Kid!

Jeannine Jones


Jeannine is a certified Medical Assistant and loves helping others. Her natural nurturing ability has lead her to be the "School Mom" of the children in our care and she proudly wears the title. She gives one on one time with children to strengthen their learning and believes that any moment can be a teaching moment. 

Tiana Fanniel

Administrator & Teacher

On top of handling the administrative duties, Tiana also steps in to teach whenever the need arises. She has experience teaching in other schools as well as in a community center and she always incorporates exciting new ideas into our program.
