Teachers

We're there for you and your child

In our work, we put great focus on one thing – the welfare of your child.  The first element in a positive learning experience is safety and security.  Our staff treats each child with respect and compassion.  Our team of educators works hard to develop individualized lesson plans based on each child’s needs.  We take an approach to early childhood education that promotes learning through play and strong bonds between teachers, children and families.

Each member of our teaching team is a Wisconsin DCF Certified Child Care Teacher and has studied Early Childhood Education at a Technical College or University which means you can trust that your child is in the hands of a true, trained professional.  Our teachers regularly participate in educational classes and seminars and always bring new ideas and input to their daily lesson plans.
