Erin Houlihan – Juniper Tree KindergartenErinHoulihan-1

“If a child is to keep his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.” ~Rachel Carson

Erin has been working with young children for over 11 years. After spending a few years assisting and then teaching in multiple Montessori schools, she was led to a Waldorf inspired Childcare Center. Erin has spent the last five years teaching the Preschool/Kinderhaus program there, making the woods and trails her true classroom space.

Erin received her BA in Liberal Studies at the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, MN. She then went on to earn a Certificate in Early Childhood Education from the Montessori Training Center in Boulder, Co. Most recently, Erin completed the Lifeways Training in Milwaukee during the summer of 2010
