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 children a wide range of opportunities to experience and learn from their environment to provide them with skills that will serve them not only in the short-term but also throughout life.


JJ, Butterflies Teacher

Hi, TLG families. I am so excited to be a part of The Learning Gardens family, and one of the Butterflies teachers. My experience before childcare was in a clinical setting using my abnormal psychology skills and knowledge. I have been at The Learning Gardens since 2018.  I have a passion for two things: babies and learning. As an infant teacher, I love to snuggle babies. At the same time, early brain development and attachment is very important to me. A child’s brain goes through an amazing period of development between 0-3 years old. Their brains produce 700 neural connections every second!! My education includes: MA Organizational Management with a Healthcare Administration concentration, BA in psychology, and the proper credentials to be a licensed daycare provider. I have been married for almost 20 years. Together my husband and I have: 2 dogs, 2 cats, 2 high schoolers, and 2 adult children. Our home is never boring!

Kylie, Butterflies Teacher

Hi friends! My name is Kylie and I am so excited to be joining The Learning Gardens family! I’ve been in childcare since 2010, nannying since 2012 exclusively. I’m so excited to get back to the center life and have so many babies to love! I live in Madison with my boyfriend and two pups, and in my free time you can find me with a book or crocheting my newest project! I can’t wait to get to know and grow with all of your beautiful babes!
