Children's Learning Village Montessori Academy

Updated with corrected information on 3/6/14

The Children's Learning Village Montessori Academy, located at N6431 Lumber Jack Guy Road in Black River Falls, opened in 2012 to address a shortage of child care options in central Jackson County. The Ho-Chunk Housing and Community Development Agency (HHCDA), a nonprofit agency separate from the Ho-Chunk Nation, received a grant to help start the center. The HHCDA Board of Directors also hired Lee Ann Mortenson as the Program Director.

The Academy received additional grant funds to cover operating costs for the first year and will continue to apply for grants when they receive non-profit status, but the long-term goal is to make the center self-sufficient. To assist with this goal, Mortenson was referred to the Western Dairyland Business Center and worked with a Business Development Specialist on a business plan with financial projections and a marketing plan. "I am very thankful for the assistance and education I received from Western Dairyland," she said. "I would highly recommend their services to anyone involved in a new business."

Eight jobs were initially created through the Children's Learning Village and that number is expected to increase as enrollment continues to rise. For more information about the Children's Learning Village, visit www.clvma.com or call 715-284-7987.
