Our Director: Karen Biers

Karen Biers has a Masters in Social Work and a Certificate in Early Childhood Education. Her passion for early childhood education began when her own (now adult) children went to a cooperative preschool - she has been hooked ever since. “Preschool is where it all happens! I especially love working with young children and their families in a cooperative setting, because raising and teaching children is best done within a loving and supportive community.”

Prior to teaching preschool (for 15 years), Karen was a therapist working with individuals, children and families. She developed therapy programs for adults and elementary school children, was a preschool consultant and directed a summer camp.

When not at work, Karen writes children’s stories, practices her ukulele, hangs out with family and friends and loves walking her recently acquired pound puppy, Banjo.
