Meet the Staff
Hi my name is Cassi Stoeklen. I am the owner/administrator of The Learning Tree Child Care Center. My husband and I opened The Learning Tree Child Care Center in March of 2013. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin- Stout in December 2009, with a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education and receiving my DPI License from Wisconsin to teach children birth to 8 years old, I became a 4K teacher in Birchwood, WI, which is my home town. After a year in Birchwood, I had the opportunity to be a second grade teacher in Menomonie, WI. I then married in 2010 and started a family in 2012. After having my daughter, I became a part-time 4K teacher in Fall Creek. I decided that I wanted to teach but also wanted to be a stay at home mom, so I decided to open a licensed child care center. Teaching children is a passion of mine and I strive to provide a center that will promote an educational environment for all children to learn through play and interaction.
Hi my name is Nicole Saastad. I am the director of the The Learning Tree Child Care Center. I have worked in child care for five years where I have been a 4K teacher and a director. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stout in May 2008, with a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and received my DPI License from Wisconsin to teach children birth to 8 years old. I taught kindergarten for one year and 4K for 2 1/2 years. I love working with children and love working at a child care center so I can spend time with my daughter and son. My goal as the director of The Learning Tree Child Care Center is to provide a safe learning environment where parents feel comfortable to leave their children while they go to work or school. The office door is always open for parents to come ask questions or express concerns.
