We have the very important role of caring for your child and encouraging their development in their first year.  Our goal is to provide a high quality, nurturing and safe environment.  Our hopes for your child are to encourage them to grow into a wonderful, curious and happy person.  All activities are designed to stimulate their physical, intellectual, social and emotional growth.

Ashley, Peapod Teacher

I have been working within the early childhood field since 2013. I graduated from Blackhawk Technical College with an Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education.  I am a level 12 on The Registry. I live in Monroe with my parents where I was born and raised. I am eager to get to know you and your child. I look forward to working together with your family to make your child’s experience an amazing one.

Katie, Peapod Teacher

Hello! My name is Katie Rood and I’m Ashley’s co-teacher in the Peapod Room! I previously worked full-time at The Learning Gardens for a year before I temporarily went to part-time to work at a bank. I really missed working with the kids so I decided to come back full-time! I also have a year experience as an infant teacher from a different childcare center. I’m so excited to be back and look forward to getting to know everyone!
