Wiggle Worms

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 for your child that will help him/her grow into a wonderful, curious and happy person. All activities are designed to stimulate their physical, intellectual, social and emotional growth in a loving and comfortable environment.

Margaret has a Bachelor of Science degree from University of Wisconsin-Platteville in philosophy and criminal justice.  When interviewing and meeting with Margaret it was clear she was searching for something more in her career path.  She has always had a strong love for family and children.  After becoming a grandparent, she decided to take the leap and has invested her interests in the early childhood field.  It is obvious that she is caring, nurturing and willing to try something new which are all great qualities on an infant teacher.





Tonya, Wiggle Worm Teacher

Welcome families, I’m Tonya. I’m lucky enough to be one of the Wiggle Worm teachers! I started working at The Learning Gardens in August 2015. In May of 2012, I graduated from Madison College with an Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. My experience has been twelve years working with children from six weeks old to age twelve. When I’m not working, I enjoy hiking, kayaking, and spending time with my three nieces. My favorite things to do in the Madison area are attending the Farmers Market, going to Badger football games, and Badger basketball games. I look forward to meeting all of you!
