We believe that each child is a unique and special person who need to be shown that it is okay to be that special person. We value an environment that encourages learning through creative play and we encourage the children to show us how they want to learn and explore, then help them further challenge themselves. We welcome all of our families to be actively involved in your child’s education and value your input to ensure that we are helping each individual child be successful in our program.


I graduated from Ferris State University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Social Work and from Grand Valley State University with a Master’s Degree in Public Administration. I have over a years experience working within an accredited early childhood education center, several years of nanny experience and over eighteen years of experience being a foster sister.  I truly enjoy working with young children! They always are exploring, learning new skills and showing their love openly.  Plus, they all think I am a great singer! I live in Madison with my husband (David)  and pup (Rosie).  I cannot wait to meet your family and child!




Hello!  My name is Shanti and I have a love for learning about new places, cultures, history, and people! I graduated from the University of Wisconsin Madison with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Anthropology & Gender and Women Studies I also minored in Classics, Archaeology and Latin. Throughout my education my focus has always been on children. From a young age I knew that I not only wanted to work with children but that I had a real passion for child development. Over the years I have worked in preschools, tutored children of various ages, taught courses for young advanced learners and completed research on child development/cognitive milestones. Outside of work I love to do yoga, go for runs and spend time with my Siberian Husky puppy, Phillip. One of my favorite things to do is wake up on Saturday morning with a cup of tea and a good book– one of my all time favorites is The Big Friendly Giant!  I absolutely love the fun and positive learning environment! The best way to grow and learn is by having fun.
