Greater Lafayette families have been putting down roots with us since 1970. We consider it an honor to both educate and nurture local children from 8 weeks to 12 years old. Our two learning centers employ hands-on learning curriculum and inspiring activities allowing your child to flourish. And our safe, caring environment allows Brookshire to be your child’s home away from home.
We’re not a franchise, we’re a family. As independently-owned learning centers, we can focus on giving your child the best care and education, instead of worrying about franchise fees or corporate red tape. We’re in the business of growing and nurturing young bodies and minds with a team who loves what they do.
Our dedicated staff and teachers are the heartbeat of this place. Our turnover is low for this industry. Our team enjoys higher-than-average pay and unprecedented professional development. Everyone here is also state certified and meets all Indiana child care and preschool standards. And most importantly, we have huge hearts for children and learning.
Seeing the joy on children’s faces at Brookshire is the highlight of my day. I run the day-to-day operations at our West Lafayette location, ensuring the best possible experience in a safe and nurturing environment. With a bachelor’s in child development and family studies, I’ve worked with children for years, including teaching Sunday School, working with 4-H, being a music teacher, tutoring, and leading workshops on parenting and related topics. When I’m not at work, you can find me spending time with my husband and four kids. I also love landscaping, hiking, swimming, reading, and restoring old houses.
