Emily Groenhuizen is a homeschool mother and has been teaching and caring for infants, toddlers, and children for 14 years.
She began her career as a preschool teacher in Gillette, Wyoming. The daycare in Wyoming had specific rules that a California native like Emily wasn't used too.
There she and the kids would spend the entire day outside as long as the weather was zero degrees or above.
The kids were tough, resilient and had room to be free and so did she. Then she came back to California and got a degree in Early childhood education and began her family. After her daughter was born she opened an in home daycare.
Today she is still working with kids as a homeschool mother and Founder of Conejo Forest School, where she teaches children the beauty of nature!
