At ThedaCare, we are looking for talented, dedicated professionals to join our Child Learning Center team. Our Child Learning Center has been open since 1991. The center boasts a continuity of care in that children have primary caregivers assigned to the same group of children from infancy until they turn age 3. That teacher helps children transition to one of the multi-age preschool rooms for children ages 3 – 5. The Center is also a site for the Appleton Area School District’s community 4-K program.
We are dedicated to promoting a positive self-image in a happy and safe environment, striving to stimulate intellectual, physical, emotional and social
growth in the children we serve. We believe each child is unique and has a natural curiosity to learn.
