Ms. Katie M.

Program Director

Hello! My name is Katie Mueller; I am so excited to join the admin team at Gilden Woods of Caledonia as Program Director.

I have two children; Jackson is 5 and Claire is 3. Both attend Gilden Woods and enjoy coming to work with me!

On the weekends my family can be found outside; in the summer we are at the park, camping, or boating. In the winter we are sledding or building snowmen!  I graduated from Grand Rapids Community College with an associate’s degree in Child Development. I have over 11 years’ experience in the classroom working with infants through school-age and 5 years administrative experience, including most recently working at the Grandville/Wyoming AppleTree as Program Director.

I am so excited to get to know the amazing children and families at Caledonia!
