Location

We are located at 725 W. Wrightwood Ave. in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago, IL.

Harmony opened in September of 2020, hosting learning pods for elementary & middle school students. One part school, one part home, makes for a cozy and beautiful learning environment. 

We now offer services for children of all ages, including after school programs for K-5 graders, summer camps and parent/toddler play sessions.

 

Director

I'm Ginny Conforti, director and owner of Harmony. I'm mother to 4 children ages 2-18 years. I've lived in Lincoln Park for the last decade. With the pandemic closure of in-person school, I struggled to meet the needs of my elementary and middle school daughters, while also caring for my toddler. Our home wasn't feeling very harmonious. I knew other children and parents were struggling too! I felt called to use my talents to help the community, myself and my family! I came up with the idea of a Montessori inspired learning center to offer care, comfort and a sense of community, a calm and caring respite, supporting students in navigating remote school. How could I make an uncertain time more certain? By creating a place with the structure and order of school & the comforts and beauty of home. And this is how HARMONY was born! Over the last year, I have carefully curated the space to meet the ever-changing needs of children and families. I can't wait to welcome you into the Harmony family!  

Experience

I am a licensed K-9 and E1 Montessori certified educator with 20 years teaching experience in charter, public, international, IB and Montessori schools. I also hold a graduate level Elementary Reading Endorsement. Many families in the community know me as "Ms. Ginny" from my years teaching Lower Elementary 1 (ages 6-9) at Oscar Mayer Elementary prior to opening Harmony.
