Meet Our Director


My name is Rachel Kraus. I am honored and excited to be the Director of Rosebuds Early Learning Center. I love working with children, and I am passionate about Lutheran Education.

I started my career in early education by working in Infant and Toddler programs. After many years of working with young children in the classroom I took a position as the Director of a Lutheran Preschool.

I received my bachelor’s degree, in family psychology, from Northwestern college. In addition, I have completed master’s level courses, in Leadership, from Concordia University. I have also completed my Child Development Credentials, and I am trained in Pediatric First Aid and CPR.

I live in Maplewood with my thirteen year old daughter, Isabel, and our cat, Max. I have a large extended family with many siblings, nieces and nephews. I am recently engaged and looking forward to marrying in the spring. My favorite season is autumn. I love the crisp, cool, air and the colorful leaves. I enjoy trips to the North Shore at any time of the year, and I love to start each day with a warm cup of coffee.  I am looking forward to meeting all of you, and partnering with you, in the opening of our new Early learning Center. 

Serving Him,
