Linda Hayes

Verona Director & Lead Teacher


I have been a teacher at Little Blessings Preschool since 2007 and the director in Verona since 2012. I absolutely love teaching preschoolers and watching them blossom and grow. It is such a privilege and joy to be a part of the lives of the children and families of Little Blessings. I have a bachelor’s degree in business administration and before I had children, I worked in the business world in human resources as a recruiter and then for several years in the insurance industry and was a licensed agent. My husband and I moved to Madison with our kids in 2000 for his job. I was home for several years as a stay-at-home mom and then when my youngest went off to kindergarten, I became aware of an opening for a teacher at Little Blessings. I feel like it was a gift from God because at the time I wanted to get back to work, but not necessarily in what I had done before. I had volunteered frequently in my children’s classrooms and taught church school at Good Shepherd, so the thought of being a preschool teacher was exciting to me. I took the necessary training to become a lead teacher and have loved teaching ever since! I look forward to more years of nurturing and teaching young learners and hopefully instill in them a love of learning.


Kelly Madden

Lead Teacher


Welcome! I'm Miss Kelly, and I have been sharing my gift and passion for working with preschool-aged children at our Verona location since the fall of 2007.

There's something truly magical about this age group that I absolutely love! It’s the best seeing their curiosity, creativity, unique personality, faith, and growth unfold each day.

I’m the Lead Teacher of the M/T Whales class, assist in the W/Th/F Ravens class, and co-teach our Extended Day classes.

My Whales class often is a family's first time having their child in care outside of their home. Selecting Little Blessings as the place to lay the foundation for life-long faith and whole-child learning on top of entrusting your child’s care with us is a decision that does not go unnoticed and is treated with the utmost care and understanding.
