The Sunshine Room 

Our classroom teaching team consists of Lisa, Lindsey and Heather.  We believe all teachers are equally responsible for planning and carrying out a variety of developmentally appropriate activities as well as providing a safe and caring environment.

We believe that children learn by actively engaging in activities and by exploring their surroundings. The Sunshine Room provides a variety of experiences each day that will allow your child to develop their senses, imaginations, and increase their knowledge and understanding of the world. Because of the specific age group, our activities are planned to allow for various stages of development.

Lindsey, Sunshines Teacher

My name is Lindsey and I love teaching 4K at the Learning Gardens! I have called this school my second home since August of 2018. I obtained my degree in Elementary Education from UW-Madison as well as my Wisconsin teaching license. I have worked with infants to middle schoolers in many different settings for over a decade. I was originally drawn to the Learning Gardens because of its enrichment programs like music, JumpBunch, and dance. It didn’t take long for me to realize those are only a small part of what makes our school so great! I live right down the road from our school with my husband, our dog and two cats. In my free time I like to read, go on walks, and watch TV. I look forward to making the Learning Gardens a home away from home and your child’s favorite place to learn and grow!




Lisa, Sunshines Teacher

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville in 1988 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education and an emphasis in Early Childhood Education.

I live in Mt. Horeb with my husband, Mike and our children Ashlee and Alex. I look forward to getting to know you and hope we can work together to make your child’s experience in our classroom a success!


Heather, Sunshine Support Teacher

My name is Heather and I am a mother, teacher, wife, student and friend.  I have been teaching in a preschool setting for ten years now and love everything about helping kid’s discover life and knowledge.  Teaching and child development are strongly implemented in my everyday life, from work to home.  My passion for kid’s and providing positive experiences is sincere and constant.

My family and I relocated from Las Vegas, NV to Wisconsin out of love for the nature, family environment, and down to earth people.  We all love any kind of outdoor activities and enjoy staying active.  I’m a coffee enthusiast with a silly personality.  I look forward to getting to know everyone and working with such an amazing company.  The welcoming attitudes and warmth the staff has given is exactly the work “home” I have been in search of for myself and my own children.  Having a great team to be with is one of the many things that attracted me to The Learning Gardens.  Once again, I look forward to meeting all of you and your little ones!
