I have been the Program Director here at Terri’s Treehouse for 16 years prior to that I was the Preschool Teacher here. I have worked with children as long as I can think back, to my purpose, as a 10 year old new big sister and an Aid in Highschool.  I've continue to further my education traditionally and progressivley, for Early Education working towards my Associates at Nicolet. Then I changed directions into achieving my Administrators Credential from University of WI several years ago.  I am a Certified Trainer in Early Education and am active in our community.  I always believed it "Takes a Villiage", now that we hove our villiage it's time to grow.

I'm a mother of four and happily residing with my blended family on the Island. I love this community and I am very active in advocating to preserve our Natural Resources in this area (Flora, Fauna and Children) , we have so many opportunities right here to grow along with all the natural resources to raise a resourceful family and future. Having the Program for 16 years I've been able to share and grow with our Community and feel a deep purpose in connecting with others on that philosophy.

We do offer Family-Style meals giving the children choices in all food groups, giving the children control of what they consume while also working on manners and fine motor control, this also supports a prosocial atmoshere that is ideal for establishin traditions around the table.  Every Tuesday we have Try-It Tuesday which gets the c hildren excited for trying something new that typically was grown locally or even in our garden we learn about the origin and it helps us feel connected with the food.  Our recipes have been published in Wisconsin School Garden Network and Emily has been a guest forum speaker for local and state wide School Farm to Table Nutrition Conferences.  *MISS JENNY SANDSTROM NUTRITIONAL EXPERT, COOK AND STAFF SUPPORT AND CPHT Certified EXTRORDINARE EXPERIENCE CPR CERTIFIED MOTHER, WIFE!

Miss Anna and Miss Stacey-- Substitutes

WELCOME MISS ANNA LOHOFF MISS ANNA IS GOING TO BE SUPPORTING THE PROGRAM AS A SUBSTITUTE AND CO-VID RELIEF MENTOR Miss Anna is so sweet and we are so happy to have her here. She will be uploading all the Curriculum Weekly so families can see what's happening in the Program. Philosophy on Early Education: I believe that children learn from their environment and the people in them. That is why it is especially important that as a teacher we ensure that the children are provided with toys and materials that they find fun and engaging. It is our job as a teacher to be that support for the children and help them grow, learn, and have fun! Educational History: I graduated last summer with my Associates in Early Childhood Education and am currently attending UW Whitewater for my bachelor’s in early childhood education. I enjoy being surrounded by nature and exploring new places around me with my fiancé. When I have free time, I like to read a book or do some knitting and crocheting. My cat Meeko is like a son and he also takes up a big bunch of my time with all his playing and cuddling! I am obsessed with cats and elephants! Registry level 12 CPR Certified I have been a one-year old teacher, a three-year-old teacher and a preschool teacher. I have a huge passion for working with children and seeing them enjoy life!

Miss Stacey is a reliable asset to support staff safely during CO-VID she has several years of expereince and a her entry level in the Registry.  We are so happy she is here supporting our Program!
