Owners Heather Rust & Brittany Lannen

Heather Rust and Brittany Lannen share a passion for children and have joined together to fulfill a dream they each had of operating a child care business in a small community.

Heather is a Professional Photographer specializing in maternity and newborn pictures. She has worked in childcare in the past and having a basketball team of boys herself, she knows just how precious and fleeting those early days in a child’s life are. Her skill in capturing beautiful images that families treasure for a lifetime is unmatched in our area and she gives that same attention to each and every child at Cubs’ Den Waco Daycare.

Brittany is an attorney practicing in criminal, family and cps law in our area. She works tirelessly for the tiny clients who are impacted by each case she handles, whether she represents the child or the parent. Seeing how a child’s life can be derailed by tragedy, how a properly handled case can literally save a child’s life, and knowing that coaching and counseling families through changes in family structures can result in healthy, well-adjusted children, Brittany developed a particular interest over the years in early childhood development.

So, when Heather and Brittany met to discuss Heather taking pictures of a newborn foster child of Brittany’s and there was mention of the opportunity to purchase a local daycare that they both loved, it was immediately obvious that this was going to be a wonderful partnership!
