Erin has been with the Astoria Parks and Recreation Department for 9 years – and she is one of the most approachable, kind, hardworking, accountable, and passionate individual that we have the honor of working with. In 2011, Erin became the Recreation Coordinator of  Lil’ Sprouts Academy, which she has nurtured to become a widely sought after child care and preschool program. She manages an unbelievably talented team, and has developed fantastic relationships with our Sprouts families.

Most notably, Erin recently spearheaded a campaign to declare “The Week of the Young Child” in Astoria, which celebrated preschool age children, their families, and highlighted the importance of early childhood education. Everyday she proves herself to be an asset to not just our department, but to our community.
