Janet Killmer has been teaching and creating curriculum for children's classes for 25 years. She first dreamed of starting a preschool when she was ten years old, and has been collecting ideas on human development and alternative education philosophies since then. Outdoor play has always been her "happy place" even as a mostly sedentary book worm, and since observing the physical adaptations to indoor learning that hinder her music students, she has set out to build learning communities across the Puget Sound Region that return humans to their natural habitat.
"I made my decision to start an outdoor school within seconds of hearing about the concept, posted my intentions on my Facebook feed with a link to Cedarsong Nature School, and went to sleep. When I woke up, I had a full list of friends ready to join in!"
