Hanna Bruning

Education Director

A co-director with the Administrative Director, Hanna oversees programming and is the first support for teachers, students and families. 

Hanna has worked in the field of early childhood education since 2003. She received an Associates Degree in Child Development form North Idaho College and a Bachelor’s Degree in Child Development and Family Relations, with a minor in the study of psychology, from the University of Idaho. Her passion lies in following children’s lead while they explore their environments; she is also a strong believer in the power of interacting with nature.  Hanna loves to engage in conversations with children about their natural curiosities and support them while they navigate our world.

When not in the classroom you will find Hanna hiking and collecting nature items for crafts, fishing on the river or splashing in a lake with her youngest son (school aged). She also has two other young adult sons. Hanna and her husband have raised their three boys to be very active in the outdoors and good steward of the land.
