Allison Houtz, Teacher

I have a B.A. Degree in Music from Susquehanna University. For 10 years I taught early childhood music classes through the Susquehanna University Music Preparatory Program. I worked with children from infants up to 1st graders and their families to instill basic musical concepts and an appreciation of music through singing, movement, games, and play. I work as the Elementary Music Camp Coordinator for The Central Oak Heights Retreat and Arts Center in West Milton. Previously l worked for the SUMCD Agency for 8 years with all ages of their program from infants up through school age summer camp. I am a mother of 3 children, past and current Kinderfolkers! I enjoy music of all types, the outdoors, and spending time with my family and friends.

Jenn Blanchard, Teacher/Director

I grew up in the Boston area and graduated from the University of Massachusetts-Boston with a degree in English Literature. I first came to Lewisburg in 2003 with my husband David, who is a Chemistry Professor at Bucknell, and immediately fell in love with the area.  Over the years, I’ve met so many great people as I have become involved in the local community through volunteer work with the Public Library for Union County, the Lewisburg Arts Council, and Cub Scout Pack 3509.

Both of our children, Henry (12) and Holly (8), are Kinderfolk alum.  My husband and I really appreciated how well the program prepared our kids for school that when the opportunity arose to become a part of the Kinderfolk family, I jumped at the chance.
