Our Staff & Director

Vernon Child Development Center is proud of our amazing and experienced staff of child care professionals. Our teachers' average nearly 12 years of experience, and many have been at our daycare for over 10 years. This combination of experience and consistency creates a nurturing and familiar environment for the children in our care.

Teachers meet/exceed the minimum requirements of the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families. Monthly meetings with the Child Care Center Director and additional outside training/courses are required, and provide continuing education for our staff. In addition, all staff members have been screened by the Wisconsin Department of Justice as required by state regulations.

Message from the Director: 

Thank you so much for considering Vernon Child Development Center to be partners with you in caring for your child! I have been working in childcare for many years and I love the family feel of VCDC; it truly is something special. It is our goal to make sure to work with parents to raise their children, and I am an advocate for strong relationships between teachers and families. I believe that it is important to make children feel like they are at home and allow them to be young children for as long as possible! Children explore new materials, have new experiences, celebrate each other, make new friends, and so much more. Children are creative, strong-willed, and shine in their own ways at their own time. We know that here at VCDC and we are so excited to be a part of your journey! I look forward to meeting you and your family.
