Meet Our Preschool Staff

We are truly blessed to have wonderful, experienced, and caring staff at CCP!


Maureen Leurquin, Preschool Director
Maureen has been the Director of Preschool at Crossroads for the past 19 years. Prior to working at the preschool, she worked as a paralegal for 13 years, but God led her in a different direction after her two children were born. She became dedicated to teaching young children and their families about God and His Word and became the Director of Children’s Ministries at Stony Hills Presbyterian Church in Germantown for 9 years. She then returned to school to obtain her state license in Early Childhood Education, as well as her state license to be a Center Director at a Group Child Care Center when she began her exciting journey with Crossroads Preschool. Maureen stays current on policies and learning strategies by attending seminars and college-level Early Childhood Educational courses, networking with other preschool directors as well as local Early Childhood Teachers. Maureen is committed to creating a nurturing environment where children and their families can feel safe and loved. Each year she looks forward to seeing how God works in each one of the student’s lives, as they blossom and grow throughout the school year. Maureen enjoys taking long walks, Bible studies, watching the Packers, and boating. She and her husband, Jim, live in Germantown and have an adult son and daughter.

Ashley Hinz, 3K Lead Teacher
Ashley received a BA degree in International Relations from the University of Pennsylvania. For over 15 years, she worked in Corporate retail for Macy’s, Walmart, and most recently Kohl’s. During the pandemic, she followed her heart and became a stay-at-home mom. Ashley lives in Mequon with her husband and two children, Charlotte (8) and Jack (6). While Jack attended CCP, she volunteered in his 2K classroom which led to a substitute role in both 2K and 3K. Ashley has since completed her Early Childhood coursework and is excited to transition into the 3K lead teacher position! She believes in a hands-on approach to learning through play, creative thinking, social development, and communication.
Ashley is thrilled to be part of the CCP team, providing children with faith-based education rooted in compassion, gratitude, and empathy.

Erika Campbell, 2K Teacher Assistant
Erika received her Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology with an emphasis in child development from UW-Milwaukee. She previously worked at Gan Ami preschool in Whitefish Bay where she was certified and successfully implemented one of the first CATCH programs (Coordinated Approach to Child Health) in the state of Wisconsin. She worked in physical therapy for almost ten years before she realized how much she missed working with children. She trusted God’s plans for her and found her place in the special education program at an elementary school. She became a stay-at-home mom when her son was born; being a mom has been her greatest joy!
Erika lives in Thiensville with her husband and their son. Erika’s son attended CCP where she also volunteered in the classroom. Since he transitioned to elementary school, Erika enjoys spending her days volunteering at his new school as well. As a family, the Campbells enjoy road trips, being outside and exploring God’s beautiful earth. Erika finds joy in exploring the world through her son’s eyes, playing the piano, baking, gardening, and spending time with family and friends. She volunteers with VBS each summer and helps the preschoolers shine Jesus’ light. They are members at Grace Lutheran Church in Thiensville. Erika looks forward to nurturing each child’s distinctive learning style while keeping Christ at the center of their lessons to aid in the development of well-rounded, faith-driven individuals.


Erika Nunes, 3K Teacher Assistant
Erika received a BA degree in Fashion Merchandising from Siena Heights University. After several years of managing and merchandising retail environments, Erika became a stay-at-home mom with the birth of her first son.  Her husband’s job relocation brought the family from St. Joseph, Michigan to Wisconsin in 2021. Erika, her husband, and two boys, Henrik (10) and Oskar (6) settled in Mequon where Oskar attended the 3K program at CCP.  Erika homeschooled both boys for a year and through homeschooling, Erika found a passion for faith-based education with hands-on learning and creative play.  Now that both boys are attending a Lutheran private school, Erika is still passionate about captivating the minds of children with a desire to love God and explore His world. Erika volunteers with Ozaukee County Young Life as a youth leader and attends Christ Church in Mequon.  In her free time, she likes to explore the Wisconsin cheese offerings at any local grocer, dig deep into a Bible study, travel with her family to national parks, spend summer days on Lake Michigan, and holiday with her husband’s family in Brazil.  Erika looks forward to engaging 3K students in a nurtured learning environment and inspire their little hearts to grow big with God’s love.
