Child Care Matters: The Growing Tree’s humble beginnings
Growing tree
Brooke Skidmore didn’t have a childcare background when she opened The Growing Tree childcare center in New Glarus eight years ago. Skidmore, with a degree in art education, was struggling to find childcare options for her young daughters, so she and her brother Brandon Legler, who has a degree in Family Studies and Human Development, began planning to fill the need they saw in the community. They built their facility and opened in the summer of 2013.
