The Butterfly Room




Children develop a love or an aversion for learning in the first few years of life.  Therefore, we work to design our program to generate a lifelong desire to explore, question, and create.  We plan our classroom environment and age-appropriate curriculum to best support and nurture our children’s interests and needs.  We give the children a wide range of opportunities to experience and learn from their environment, which will provide them with skills that will serve them not only in the short-term but also throughout life.



Ashley, Butterflies Teacher

Hi, my name is Ashley Werrline! I am 25 years old and live on the East side of Madison, I have lived in Madison for 2 years, I am originally from Monroe. I am from a big family so growing up I was always the go-to babysitter! I babysat starting at the age of 12 and did that until I graduated high school. I started at my first daycare in Monroe, and that is when I knew I wanted to work with children. I am currently working on my books to become state certified! Some things I enjoy outside of work is, kayaking, hiking, camping, basically anything outdoors! Although I do spend a majority of my time watching old musicals while getting my hands dirty on some art project! I am so excited to get to know and work with all the families and teachers here at TLG! 

Jessica, Butterflies Teacher

Hello, my name is Jessica and I am so excited to be one of the Butterfly teachers! In December of 2011, I graduated from Blackhawk Technical College with an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education. In addition, I also have an Associates Degree in Administrative Professional.  I really enjoy teaching and know that this is where my heart will always be! I recently bought my first house in May of 2017 and feel that is one of the biggest achievements of my life. I have a daughter named Kaylee, who is the light of my world.  She is a mini-me for sure! We have two puppies at home, a Black Labrador named Oakley & Chiweenie named Chance. They all keep me going most days!

My goal is to start school in the spring and continue my education to earn my bachelor’s degree in Education.  I have really enjoyed getting to know the staff, children & parents so far. This is such a great place to work & I am super excited to see where this journey at The Learning Garden’s takes me!
