TRANSFORMING THE LIVES OF CHILDREN

through early education and childcare services and solutions

Joe and Bridget McGuire own and actively operate The Learning Circle. Founded in 2016, their goal is as clear then as it is today; to provide the best early education and childcare services to children of all ages. Their goal is to transform the lives of children and their communities.

Joe is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps and Bridget has a Bachelor’s degree in business management. Together, their passion for finding quality childcare for their own family led them to open their first childcare center. 

Shannon Pranke is the Senior Executive Director of The Learning Circle. Shannon has been in childcare since 2002 and has a double AAS in business management and early childhood education. Prior to joining the TLC family, Shannon had her own childcare for nearly 6 years. She loves children and enjoys spending time with her wonderful husband, Dane, and their two amazing daughters. Her free time is spent reading, at the lake and most importantly with family and friends.

“Our family has been with The Learning Circle for a few years, with both of our children exhibiting a great amount of love and joy from their caregivers, which is a huge relief as a parent. The teachers provide excellent care to the children and are very involved in their care. I give the teachers/staff at TLC a 5/5!”

“I love the learning circle infant center. All the staff there are amazing and treat all the children like their own. They always send me pictures and updates on the Brightwheel app so I can see how my daughter is doing during the day. My daughter loves it there and I'm so happy I chose the learning circle infant center for my daughters’ daycare.”

“The Learning Circle is a great place to send your child. I have been sending my 2.5-year-old there since she was 6 months old and I can't believe how much she loves it! They have great staff and are always doing fun projects and parties! She has lots of friends and is always learning something new every day. They are the BEST!”

“Our daughter gets excited every time we drop her off at Little Learners! We love to watch how she is doing every day on the Brightwheel App, and she comes home every day talking about all of her friends and teachers.”

“I can't say enough good things about TLC! My son gets excited to go to 'school' every morning and is usually waiting at the door saying 'let's go!' I could go on and on!”

Jacinta D.
