Meet Our Director, Lisa Taylor

My name is Lisa Taylor, and I have been in early care and education for about 20 years. I am a mother of three grown children, Anthony, Aleesha, Jaleesa, and a fur daughter named Bella Rose, along with seven lovely grandchildren. I was born and raised in New Jersey.

In my spare time, I love riding motorcycles, spending time with my family, swimming, and of course shopping. I have my Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education Administration. I am currently working towards my master’s degree in leadership with an estimated graduation date of October 2023.

When I was a child, my parents always said I was going to be a teacher because I loved playing with dolls and acting like they were my students.

What I love most about this field is the love I have for children. I love being a Center Director and ensuring the center is a safe, nurturing, learning, and happy environment. I want it to be a home away from home and to meet the needs of every family.

I hope to establish and sustain a true professional learning community with a shared vision of excellence. If every child leaves our school with one thing they have learned throughout the day, then we have accomplished something big.
