Lisa is a New York native, and has lived here in Denver for just over three years. She has worked in early childhood education for over 20 years, and currently serves as Chief Program Officer at Mile High Early Learning. Lisa has a BS from Penn State University in Human Development and Family Studies, an MA from Pacific Oaks College in Human Development, and is currently working on her Doctorate of Education at the University of Colorado Denver.
Lisa’s husband, Dr. Anthony Grant, is the Director of Athletics at Metropolitan State University of Denver, and together they have three children, Gianna, 15, Jadyn, 11, and Preston, 4; who is spending his first year here at Paddington Station in the Johnny Townmouse classroom.
The Grant family spends most of their time attending sporting events, hiking, and traveling!
I have devoted my life’s work to supporting high quality early educational experiences for all children. Birth to five is a critical stage in a child’s development, and as adults we are uniquely positioned to maximize those years and capture the magic of learning and growth that happens during this time. I am a firm believer in the play-based approach, and feel that Paddington Station is a special place for the children and families who are part of this community.
