The Nurtured Noggins Team


We’re Ann and Megan–the mother-daughter team behind Nurtured Noggins. We may live a few miles apart (1,198 miles to be exact), but we’re united in our passion for children. We love kids and seeing them thrive through quality care. Whether you are a parent, teacher, babysitter, or anyone else, our hope is that you can count on Nurtured Noggins for ideas, information, and inspiration in providing excellent care for your child.

“In everything you do with kids, promote kindness. That’s how you make a difference in this world.”



I am the owner of Texas Childcare Training and have over 30 years of experience in early childhood education, child development and curriculum design.  I’ve worn the hats of teacher, center director, college professor, children’s pastor, teacher trainer/coach, autism consultant, and mom over the years. I currently live in Texas with my husband, Kent, and rascally dog, Cooper. I enjoy swimming, gardening and hanging out with friends and family….especially on the back porch!


I’m a former first grade teacher, now stay-at-home mom. I have experience working in childcare centers, teaching ESL, and teaching in charter schools. I live in Minnesota with my husband, Josh, and sweet baby, Cadence. I love to bake, travel, and be outside.
