Lead Educator

Brittany Young


Brittany is a current 4K teacher with 14 years of experience in the classroom under her belt in various classrooms. Those classrooms include MPS, Warner Bros Studios in Burbank, CA, the Milwaukee Public Museum, Aemilian preschool in Wauwatosa, and her current 4K classroom in Shorewood, (which happens to be the same classroom she went to school at 🥰).

She has her bachelors in early childhood education from UW Milwaukee, and she is currently getting her masters in STEM education. She has two kids Penny (8) and Cole (6), and a three-legged wonder dog named Bruce.

Two fun facts: She used to live in London (1 year), and Los Angeles (6 years). When she was 17 she was left behind on a Greek Island. Evidence of that trip can be seen at Oakland Gyros on Oakland and Locust, as she is second from the front in a picture at the Acropolis by the check out counter 😂.




Danielle is currently a teacher at a Reggio-inspired preschool in Brookfield. Before she made the transition to early childhood education, she spent 16 years as an elementary and middle school teacher in Chicago and Milwaukee, attaining both her bachelor's and master's degrees in education.

Her passion is for creating learning environments and activities rich in opportunities for children to explore, experience excitement through all their senses, and spark curiosity.

Danielle lives with her husband, two daughters, and dog in East Tosa. She is a lover of donuts, coffee drinks, plants, tattoos, and roller skating- in no particular order.


Kristin Heacox


Kristin has been teaching 4 year old kindergarten for the past 12 years at a private school in Whitefish Bay. She went to University of Wisconsin Milwaukee and earned a degree in education with a focus on early childhood education.

After 12 years of being in the classroom, she has decided to step away and find a new path in spreading the love of learning. She believes that every child has their own image and it is our job to encourage them to find it. Kristin has lived in East Tosa for 11 years with her husband, 2 sons and dog.

If she isn’t driving her children from sport to sport then you will find her drinking coffee in the morning and wine at night, enjoying everything Wisconsin has to offer, and relaxing with her family.

Her love of government grew when she worked as a US Senate Page under Senator Tammy Baldwin last summer, and is looking forward to studying political science & public policy at The George Washington University in the fall.

Outside of the classroom and her extracurriculars, she has served as a nanny to many families in the area, taught karate to kids ages 3-13, and worked at the TOSA Pool at Hoyt Park as a crew member and Admissions Supervisor.
