Snizhana Zaychenko
Gahanna Director

Hello Sunny Day family! My name is Snizhana Zaychenko, but kiddos call me “Ms. Snizzy” and I have been a School Age teacher at Sunny Day Academy since January 2013. In the beginning of January 2019, I was promoted to be an Assistant Director and in April of 2019 I was once again promoted to be a Director. I graduated from Ohio State University in 2015 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Middle Childhood Education, math and science as my areas of concentration. Since then, I continued with my education and again graduated from Ashland University in 2016 in the same field. IN December of 2017, my spouse and I had a little girl, Lexi. We enjoy being new parents and spending time together as a family. I believe that children are the future and with some motivation, nurturing, and guidance they will be productive individuals in our society. My hours are 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. I am looking forward to working with all the Sunny Day families.

Linda Trimble
Assistant Director

Hello, my name is Linda Trimble, and I am excited to be back here at Gahanna! I have an Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education from Columbus State Community College, and I am in the process of obtaining my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.  I have two handsome boys that are my life!  Cristian, born in 2001, who is currently attending Capital University and is majoring in Music Performance. Joey, born in 2004, and attends Westland High School and loves music as well.  I recently moved to Gahanna and love spending time with my boyfriend, Joe, and his two daughters who were born in 2004 and 2007.  He also has two older girls that were born in 1993 and 2000.  I love to take pictures and scrapbook my family’s memories in my spare time. I also enjoy being outside in nature, whether that be a walk, run, or simply just sitting and enjoying God's beautiful creation.  I am very involved in my church, where I am a member of our Praise Team and I take care of our slides for morning worship.  I have six siblings myself, so I love the feeling of a big family that is active and having a lot of fun. I’ve worked in a child care center since 2007 and joined the Sunny Day Academy / Emilia Schools Family in 2012. I have served as Support Staff (Oct 2012), Infant Teacher (April 2013) and Assistant Director (Aug 2013) prior to becoming Director (Aug 2014). I look forward to getting to know each one of you and being a part of your family’s education and care!  If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to reach me at the Gahanna location between 7 am and 4 pm or anytime by email at
