The Sunshine Room


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.

Lisa, Sunshine 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.  I have two grown 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!



Chloe, Sunshine Teacher

Hello, my name is Chloe and I have been with The Learning Gardens since September of 2023. I love working with kids because I love watching them grow and I believe children learn best through a safe and loving environment. I am passionate about helping children use their creativity.

I worked in the Early Childhood Education field since 2020 and I have worked with children ages 2 to 11. I’m a level 8 on the Wisconsin Registry. I hold an Associate’s Degree in Arts and Humanities from Madison college.

I have lived in Madison since 2015. I have two dogs. I enjoy connecting with families about their child’s growth.

My favorite quote is “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.” by Doctor Seuss.
