I have a Degree in Early Childhood Education and a Paraprofessional Degree. I also completed the Administrative Credential.  I have been in the childcare field since 1991 and have experience working with children of all ages. "

"My name is Bridget. I have been in the childcare field since 1999. I have experience working with children six weeks through 12 years old. I have been with Learning Links since the doors opened in 2002. I am the mother of a beautiful daughter, McKenna and the spunky son, Kaiden. I have maintained my childcare certification through the state of Wisconsin, as well as keeping current in CPR and continuing education courses. My job is very rewarding as I watch the children develop and grow throughout the years. I don't think of it as my job, but more as my second family. It is so fulfilling to see all the smiling faces which in turn puts a smile on my face every day! I feel not only lucky, but appreciate the opportunity to be part of the Learning Links staff."

"My name is Theresa.  I have been part of Learning Links since the first day when the program opened in 2002.  During this time, I have worked with every age group. I have remained in the childcare field because I enjoy the special bonds that are created over the years with the children and watching them grow into their own individuals.  The rewards and challenges of working with children is something I will cherish forever! Knowledge gained through childcare classes and continuing education has contributed to my understanding of how children grow and develop."
