Children

Karen Grey

 

Ten years ago, when this program was recorded, Karen Grey created an outdoor preschool where children were given an opportunity to find a part of themselves that our fear culture and push for academic excellence, even at the preschool age, does not allow. Karen is moving onto a new phase of her life. We thank her, wish her well, and celebrate the continuation of Carbondale Waldkinder.
