Lisa Forrester, our founder and the Director of our Princeton school, was named “Director of the Year” at the 2015 annual conference of the Association of Early Learning Leaders (AELL). The association is one of the major early childhood professional organizations in the country. They organize conferences and continuing education programs for child care center owners, teachers and emerging leaders three times per year at locations in and beyond the United States. After being nominated for this award, Lisa completed a 50 page application and Harmony was visited by an early childhood professional from AELL for a tour and interview with Lisa. A final interview was then conducted by the AELL board in St. Louis during their April conference. Upon receipt of the “Director of the Year” award, Miss Lisa was showered with wonderful gifts for Harmony! She says the award belongs to all of Team Harmony; without talented, dedicated, educated teachers and administrators, her life’s work would not be recognized! Congratulations, Miss Lisa!
