Katie Bieno
Katie Bieno - Director
My name is Katie Bieno, I received my Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education from Madison College in 2011. Over the course of the last five years I have been a Lead Teacher working with four year olds, infants and school agers at a center in Madison. I then moved to the area where I was the lead teacher for another center in town. I worked with two and a half up to five years old. I look forward to getting to know all of the families her at the center!
Becca Jones
Becca Jones - Blue Room
Hi, I'm Becca Jones. I have been working at Great Beginnings since February of 2016. I graduated from UW-Platteville in 2016 in Forensic Investigation with a minor in Criminal Justice and Psychology. I have grown up taking care of infants since I became an aunt at the age of 12. Although becoming a Lead Teacher may not have been in my plans, I've grown such an amazing bond to the children at this daycare, and I cannot wait to see what great journeys are in store. I look forward to watching and helping your children grow here at Great Beginnings!
