Meet the staff!

“My family just moved to Waupaca, from Edgerton, WI. Previously, I was a 1st grade and Kindergarten teacher for 12 years. During my teaching career I developed a love for researching child development, the Reggio Emilia approach and nature-based learning. I am so excited to see how God is going to work at The Lakes Children’s Center!”

“I have been a childcare provider for fifteen years. I enjoy seeing each child develop in their own way! I love our nature-based program that brings God into everything we do. I am looking forward to seeing how God is going to move in our community here at The Lakes Children’s Center!”
