Meet Our Director

Lailta Waller-Grant has been serving in the childcare field for 22 years and she couldn’t imagine doing anything else as she believes it’s a part of her purpose. She is a wife and mother of five absolutely amazing children. The families she has encountered over the years have become her extended family and she has had the pleasure of seeing many of the children graduate high school and even college. This field has awarded her the opportunity to impact her community through advocacy, training, consulting, classroom instruction, and center management. She is super excited about being a part of the thriving Brightside Ohio team and look forward to adding her love for children and passion for strong families to Brightside Livingston. Together her team will provide a strong early learning foundation through quality educational experiences.
