Betty Bedregal - Owner and Director
I am a teacher, spouse and the mother of an amazing son. I started working with children in 1996; my husband and I have been married since 2002, and my son was born in 2003.
Originally from Peru, I received my bachelor’s in education, Master’s Degree in psychology and doctoral degree in sensory psychology with concentration in special learning—all of this in Peru. After meeting my husband and moving to the United States, I started caring for children and teaching them Spanish. I then obtained my child development site supervisor license, became trainer for the SEES program with First Five California and became a lead teacher for First Five in the Bay Area. After these certifications, I trained childcare providers for two years.
In 2012, I became the proud Founder, Owner and Director of a Bettys Butterflies, which has been a wonderful experience and a dream come true. Since then, I have continuously kept up with ongoing learning and pursued extra training on child development.
In my free time I love going the beach with my husband, son and dog, and watching movies with my son.
Anibal Martinez - Owner and Director
My name is Anibal Martinez. I'm a teacher and father of Diego, who is the most important and treasured part of my life. He is the main reason why I am passionate about building a loving and nurturing environment for your child to grow, play, and learn. I have lived in Mountain View for 26 years and have been working with children since 2012.
As a native Spanish speaker from Guatemala who loves to bring joy to our Daycare and Preschool program, I am passionate about teaching Spanish, and sharing the Latin culture with children and their families. I became an SEES teacher in 2016, obtained the Teachstone CLASS training in 2018, and received training and certification to become a childcare center provider in 2021.
I love teaching both educational and intentional play activities designed to develop childrens' psychological, emotional, behavioral, and social skills. I love spending time with my family, playing soccer, gardening and building new things—I am always in charge of any renovations around Betty’s Butterflies!
