Allie Henke Owner/Director Email me:

Hi, I’m Allie, the owner and Director of Young Stars Childcare LLC. I have been working in the field for 13 years. I hold my Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education, Administrative Credential, and Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. I live not far from Green Lake, in Berlin. I was born and raised there. It has been my passion working with children and I have always had a strong vision for what I’ve wanted my own childcare center to look like. My husband, Adam and I have two children of our own, Jaycee and Braxton. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and going on family trips as well as shopping and home decorating. I am excited to share my vision and the importance of Early Childhood through Young Stars Childcare LLC and can not wait to get to know everyone in the Green Lake community.

Carley Peters Childcare Teacher Email me:

I’m Carley! I live right here in the beautiful town of Green Lake with my family and sweet pups- Larry and Dobby. I have a passion for working with children and being a positive influence in their lives. Here at Young Stars, you’ll find me in the one year old room, although working with any age is a joy for me. When I’m not taking care of children, I enjoy spending time outdoors, playing with my dogs, shopping, and hanging out with my fiancé, family, and friends. I look forward to continuing my career in this field and working with you and your children.
