Lori Shirley - East Director

I am the Director at Grand Beginnings East.  I graduated from IUP in 1994 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Child Development/Family Relations.  I live in Homer City with my husband, Todd, and our children, Eric and Beth. Grand Beginnings is so much more than just my job, it is my passion.  I cannot imagine myself anywhere else. The children are what makes my job so special. When I see their smiling faces or I see them finally accomplish something they have been working on, I can’t help but smile.  I’ve been here for twenty-four years and have loved every day! Please feel free to call and set up a tour to see our Center. I believe that open communication between parents, teachers and directors is so important. My door is always open to you.

Barb Lieb - West Director

Hello! I am the Director at Grand Beginnings West. I graduated from IUP in 1987 with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and have lived in the Indiana area for 30 years. My experience includes raising my 5 children, babysitting, substitute teaching, Program Staff with Evergreen After School Club, and a Girl Scout leader for 19 years. I am so excited to be a part of the Grand Beginnings Children Center Inc. Family! Working with an outstanding staff, my wonderful Parents, and most importantly, the awesome children that I will get to watch grow and be a part of this precious time of their lives. Please let me know if I can help you in any way!
