Hi! My name is Candy Schmidt and I am the Owner of Bright Beginnings. I have been working in Childcare since 1990 and have held all positions in this field. I have 5 daughters, Ashley (27), Sami (25), Amber (25) Mackenzie (19) and Cassie (18). I have spent the last couple of years being a Grandma to Addison who is 7 and Easton, who is 4 years old. I enjoy golfing in a league at Camelot Golf Course in Lomira.
Hi my name is Stephanie Gehde. I am the Assistant Director as well as school age teacher. I have a daughter named Lilanna and 2 step daughters named Lilana and Kamila. I have been working in child care for about 6 years. I think the reason I got into child care is because I am the biggest kids at heart. I love being outdoors, going for walks and especially love going fishing.

Hi! My name is Allie Teat and I am the Director at Bright Beginnings. I have been in the childcare field for few years. I came here in hopes to find a fulfilling position working with children. I love children. I have a degree in Psychology and I am always looking for new ways to help the kids have fun. My favorite color is red and I can be very artsy. I love music, cooking and baking. I do very well with large group sizes because I come from a very large family.
Hi, my name is Vicki Vossekuil. I am the Administrative Assistant for the management team. I have a family, my husband Brandon, son Tay - 5 years of age. and a step daughter Kailee - 12 years of age. I love being a mom. For our free time we love to be around old classic cars. We have a 1964 Lemans car. Being outside in the sun is the best thing. Being able to be around kids while I work is a bonus in my eyes.   


Here at Bright Beginnings we have four members of the management team. All four ladies are very excited to be on the Bright Beginnings Team and are always there to help.
