School Age Virtual Learning Program
Welcome to the Peach Tree Classroom!
Starting on Monday, March 8, 2021, The Learning Gardens will be hosting virtual learning on Mondays only.
The Learning Gardens offers a fun and nurturing environment for virtual learners ages 5-9. Our program, using certified teachers, is designed to follow your student’s daily school schedule and help them stay focused and engaged during their live/synchronous learning sessions. Your child will thrive in a setting providing structure, social enrichment, peer interaction, and physical activity. Morning snack, lunch, and afternoon snack are provided.
Wendy, School Age Virtual Learning Teacher
Hello, my name is Wendy Currie. I’ve been with The Learning Gardens since June 2015. I had taken a small break but I’m back for good. I’m married to my amazing husband, Scott, for 24 years. We have 2 grown boys. Kyle, who is going on 20, is also known as the Dragon Master. He has complete knowledge of red dragons. This man has helped mold me into the teacher I am today. Next, we have Austin who graduates this year. His next adventure is with the US Airforce where he has signed up for a 6-year enlistment. We are very proud of him.
I started in this field just on a part-time basis to earn a little extra money while I was home with our boys. I had no idea this career would become my passion. I’ve worn many hats through the years. I’ve worked with many age groups but have spent most of my time with one-year olds and 4K. Each age group has touched my heart; the one-year olds because of the many milestones in their development and the 4-5s for their energy for learning and excitement to be heading off to the big school for Kindergarten. These marvels keep me so young. I can’t image spending my days any other place than this school.
Amanda, School Age Virtual Learning Teacher
Hello! My name is Amanda Zuber and I have worked in the Early Childhood field for 14 years. I have a BS from Edgewood College with a major in Studies in Education and have also taken additional continuing education courses from UW-Whitewater.
I grew up in a small town south of Madison on a dairy farm and now live in Fitchburg with my animal kids: two cats and a bunny (guess you cannot take the farm out of the girl😋). I am very excited to start a new teaching journey at The Learning Gardens. Every day with children is an adventure…an opportunity for them to learn and master a new skill. The pride a child feels when they have accomplished something new independently for the first time lights up my world and gives me great gratification knowing that I am in the right profession!
