Dear Friends,

As we reflect on 2018, one word comes to mind: passion. From the generous contributions of our donors, to the countless hours of dedication from our volunteers, families and staff, we would not be where we are today without your unwavering support.

Thank you for wrapping your arms around us and helping our children and families reach their goals, overcome challenges and learn in a safe, stable and nurturing environment.

Each day, we meet children where they are at that moment, and we celebrate what may seem to be small victories, but for children and families are truly major milestones. Our work is to help each child reach his or her potential.

At Penfield Children’s Center, we want to ensure every parent feels supported and every child receives the care and services he or she needs to be successful. Our holistic approach strengthens each child’s physical, social and emotional health by offering quality education, health and wellness services and family programs. We use evidence-based approaches to increase skills, access resources and support families.

Your commitment to Penfield is critical. With it, each of you are an integral part of these victories and milestones. Thank you for everything you do for us.

Penfield provides a fully-inclusive Early Education and Child Care program for children 6-weeks- to 5-years-old. Accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and awarded a 5-star rating by YoungStar, Penfield employs a child-centered, exploratory approach to early learning.

IN 2018:

  • The Early Education and Child Care Program served 120 children
  • Penfield successfully passed the NAEYC reaccreditation onsite review. This is a 5-year renewal with yearly monitoring of criteria maintenance
  • 65% of our children live at or below the poverty level and 40% have a special need or required ongoing medical services



Penfield Children’s Center offers occupational, physical and speech therapy from birth to age 21. Therapy sessions are offered before and after school, and even during the lunch hour, to accommodate family and school schedules.

IN 2018:

  • Penfield provided 506 children with occupational, physical and speech therapy services
  • Through the Milwaukee County Birth to Three Early Intervention Program at Penfield, 85.17% of children displayed signs of developmental improvement in communications skills
  • The Milwaukee County Birth-to-Three Early Intervention program at Penfield served 813 children



A partnership between Penfield and Marquette University, the Behavior Clinic is the only program of its kind in Milwaukee offering family-centered, in-home treatment sessions that address issues very early in a child’s development to help prevent serious mental health issues from developing in the future.

  • The Behavior Clinic served 325 children with significant behavioral and/or emotional issues. According to the Traumatic Events Screening Inventory, 97.6% of these children experienced one or more traumatic events
  • Behavior Clinic staff presented at three National and Regional conferences focusing on trauma and our Early Pathways model
  • 95.83% of children served improved behavior and relationships with family members



The Special Care Nursery serves children from birth to age five with chronic health conditions and medical challenges. Our nurses and assistants, special education teachers, therapists and social workers provide medical care, therapy, and education for children in our care.

  • Penfield served 67 medically complex children with significant health concerns
  • We successfully transitioned the Special Care Nursery rooms to three fully inclusive childcare classrooms. The focus for these rooms is to provide access to childcare for medically complex children as well as typically developing infants



Penfield provides events, support groups, workshops and school transition support services for families. A highlight of the year is always our Holiday Party that features winter-inspired crafts, music, food and a special gift for each child. Funded by the United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha County, bilingual parent mentors work with families to provide information about Penfield’s programming and help with access to community resources.

  • Penfield offered 31 family programs and events including celebrations, support groups, parent education workshops and family reading nights
  • The 2018 Holiday Party welcomed more than 784 guests. Families participated in crafts, listened to live music and enjoyed a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus. Kohl’s Associates, La Macchia Enterprises and Northwestern Mutual donated enough gifts for all Penfield children and their siblings



Through generous support from Kohl’s Cares, the Kohl’s Building Blocks Program helps Penfield Children’s Center support children throughout surrounding Milwaukee-area communities in Wisconsin. This comprehensive program gives children in need access to early educational and developmental programs, services and equipment.

  • 1,708 Children served by Child Development Specialists
  • 24,644 Participants worked with our Community Outreach team
  • 18,853 Children received Early Educational Toolkits
  • 102,849 Visitors accessed content on
Penfield Children’s Center



Our vision for Penfield Montessori Academy is to create a pathway for more children to graduate from high school on-time by tailoring educational experiences for each child, and ensuring students remain on track with their more affluent peers. This path begins with early intervention services at Penfield Children’s Center and continues with academic instruction at Penfield Montessori Academy. In September 2018, Penfield Montessori welcomed 125 K3-2nd graders, with a plan to enroll more than 300 students through 8th grade in 2024. Click here to visit Penfield Montessori Academy.


  • 100% of our teachers and students returned for the 2017/18 school year
  • We exceeded our enrollment goal of 114 students
  • Each student receives an individually designed learning plan
  • In partnership with Marquette University, we opened the state’s 1st fully-integrated school-based mental health clinic


  • In collaboration with artist Tom Mosser, Penfield kids created a 75’x4.5’ mural that now hangs in the lounge in the Milwaukee Bucks’ new home, the Fiserv Forum.

  • Iowa-based band HomeBrewed and Linneman’s Riverwest Inn hosted a benefit concert for our Special Care Nursery!

  • We honored Mary Jo and Kevin Mansell, former CEO of Kohl’s, and showcased the story of a special child, KayMia at the 23rd annual Croquet Ball.

  • A NEW logo for Penfield! Created by our friends at Cramer Krasselt, the new logo incorporates the shape of a sun, but with solid-colored triangles and a contemporary font, similar in style to the logo of Penfield Montessori. This creates a strong linkage between the two entities and strengthens Penfield’s overarching brand.

  • We celebrated Dr. Jeffrey Schwab’s retirement after providing more than 30 years of orthopedic rehabilitation services to our families. In collaboration with physicians at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Dr. Schwab and his team evaluated and treated children experiencing orthopedic and developmental delays/disorders.

  • In 2018, Penfield welcomed 906 volunteers who provided 9,236 hours of service.


  • On Facility Day, 100+ Kohl’s facility leaders from across the country completed projects such as a breastfeeding room, light installations, restoring the school’s entrance and more!
  • Physical Therapy and Exercise Physiology students from Marquette University provided adaptive gym classes for all students

  • The Milwaukee Fire Department donated more than 125 winter coats for our kids through their Warm Up Winter initiative

  • Duke basketball player and founder of Walk On America, Brennan Besser and his family hosted a basketball clinic at Penfield Montessori! The Bucks’ Marshall Plumlee and John Steinmiller also visited and ran drills with participants

  • La Macchia Enterprises donated more than 1,800 books to our classroom libraries


Your contributions and heartfelt dedication allows us to serve the most vulnerable children in Milwaukee.

On September 8, 2018, Penfield celebrated the 23rd annual Croquet Ball at Milwaukee Country Club. Guests enjoyed a cocktail reception, speed croquet match, silent, live and paddle auctions, gourmet dinner and a program showcasing a very special Penfield child, KayMia. In recognition of their generous support of Penfield’s programs, we honored Mary Jo and Kevin Mansell, retired CEO of Kohl’s.
