Our Staff

Here at the UWM Children’s Learning Center, we pride ourselves on providing the best care and education for your child. We employ capable, caring staff and provide them with targeted training to achieve the highest standards in caregiving. Our team includes both a full-time staff of trained professionals with degrees in Education and related fields and current UWM students who are working toward degrees. Many of our full-time staff have been with the Center for over 25 years! All of our staff maintain CPR certification and training in pediatric first aid.

Sometimes you may find yourself needing to contact someone with a specific question or concern. Below are some of the personnel in the Center that you may want to contact, along with their phone number and email address. Administrative personnel are listed first (professional staff listed before student staff), then professional classroom personnel, starting with infant, then toddler, preschool, kindergarten, and lastly, school-age.
