Office Staff

Ms. Regina

Regina is the administrator of The Caring Center and has been on staff since 1987. A native of La Crosse, she earned a degree in elementary education from UW-La Crosse and completed additional coursework for Department of Public Instruction certification in pre-K through grade 8.  Regina also earned her credential in child care administration from UW-Milwaukee.

Before relocating to the Madison area, Regina taught first and second grades in Genoa, Wis., for six years.  She has served numerous terms on the state board of the Wisconsin Child Care Administrators Association and was an active member of various planning committees for the Verona Pre-K program. Coming from a family of teachers, she credits her mother, a middle school teacher, with being her greatest influence in choosing a career in education.

 

 

Ms. Sheny

Sheny is the office manager at The Caring Center.  She is new to our staff since November of 2016.  She loves working in an environment where children are always present.  Sheny was born in Madison, but raised in Missouri.  She now resides in Belleville with her boyfriend and two guinea pigs (Rex & Herman).  Sheny attended UW Madison and will be furthering her education in Business.

Sheny says that “she enjoys reading books and singing to children because she gets joy out of seeing them smile while they learn”.

 

 

 

Ms. Rachel

Rachel is our administrative assistant.  She just recently started working with us in December of 2016.  She is currently enrolled at UW Milwaukee in pursuit of her childcare administration credential. Rachel has been working in the childcare field for 5 years and can’t imagine ever working somewhere where there aren’t children around.  She hopes to have many kids of her own some day and is engaged to be married in 2017.

Rachel says that “The best things about working with children are watching them learn new things, seeing them grow into their personalities, and noticing them becoming more and more independent.”
