Ashley Cook

Hello! My name is Ashley Cook, and I am married to Bob Cook. We have four children ages 19, 16, 9, and 4, all BOYS. They definitely keep us on our toes.

I previously worked for the Middle School as a para. When Munchkinland and More approached myself about working in their preschool aged room I was beyond excited for a change and I said YES! I absolutely love coming to work everyday and seeing all of the kids.

Stacia Vanhouden

Kansas Lead Teacher

Hello, My name is Stacia Vanhouden. I am a mother of an 8-year-old boy Asher Wayne. We live in Humboldt, Kansas, where my son attends elementary school.

Growing up, my mother had her own in-home daycare, so I have always been around some type of daycare setting, and when I was old enough, I also started babysitting. I previously worked at another daycare center in town before working for the district as a para. When I was approached about taking this job here at Munchkinland and More, I said YES!! I enjoy working with of all ages kids, but I am a little partial to the infants since that is what age I worked with previously at the other center.

Madison Ellis


Hello! My name is Madison Ellis, and I am married to my high school sweetheart, Brock Ellis. 2019 was great because we said our vows and bought our first house. We have two daughters, Braelynn and Brynlee and they are the light of our lives.

I have previously worked in another center in Pittsburg, Kansas (The Center) before moving back home to Colony, Kansas. I always have loved working with the kids. So, I applied when a new daycare center opened close to home. Then I received the call, and I said YES!!
