Welcome to our U-GRO Learning Centre here in Harrisburg, PA! My name is Laurien Smith and I'm the center director. I have 11 years of experience in the field, as well as a bachelor's degree in mass communication and a master's degree in elementary education.
A part of the Harrisburg community since 2005, our modern center is based on a two-acre campus at the TecPort Business Center. Located off the Eisenhower Interchange at I-83, our Harrisburg East location conveniently serves our surrounding community and commuters.
We provide a clean and safe environment where Infants, Toddlers, Preschoolers, as well as School-Age children are comfortable learning and playing throughout the day. Our talented staff members take part in trainings throughout the year to stay current in the field of early education.
We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.
We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment.
I encourage you to schedule a tour to meet our staff and explore our various early learning programs here at U-GRO in Harrisburg, PA. We can't wait to meet you!
Are you concerned about the impact of COVID on your child’s education? You’re not alone. Now, more than ever, early education matters. We’re here to help.
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
Education: Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communications; Master's Degree in Elementary Education with Focus in ESL
I joined the U-GRO family in 2019 and have over 11 years of experience in the field. I love to watch the children light up when they are excited about something, the growth that you see on a daily basis, as well as the unconditional love that they have for the teachers and friends!
