Meet our Edina Director Team

Abby Heidelberg

Abby started with the Cradle Club in November of 2015. She discovered her love for young children when babysitting her niece and nephews when they were little. In her time at The Cradle Club, Abby has been a lead teacher in older toddlers, young preschool and was the lead teacher of Infant 2 before joining the Director Team as our school’s 3rd in Charge. Drawing from her previous management experience in the retail world, Abby loves serving in a leadership capacity to help bring excellence and provide quality care for our children, staff and families. In her free time, Abby loves to do crafts, plan parties and do photography. Abby also loves to spend her days with her husband and children JJ and Evee who also attend The Cradle Club!
