Location

We are located at 725 W. Wrightwood Ave. in the Lincoln Park and Lakeview 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, tutoring and day camps for K-5 graders, toddler & caregiver play sessions and preschool prep classes.

Director

I'm Ginny Conforti, director and owner of Harmony. I have 4 children ages 5-21 years old. I've lived in Chicago for over a 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 families were struggling too!

 

Then sparked the idea of a Montessori inspired learning center to create a sense of community- a calm and caring respite for students navigating remote school. A place with the structure and order of school & the comforts and beauty of home. This is how HARMONY was born!

Over the last 3 years, 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 22 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.

You can contact me at ginny@harmonylearn.com.

Hi, my name is Mr. Dylan! I moved to Chicago a few years ago with my wife. I was born in Kentucky and lived in Alabama for two years before moving to Lakeview. I have a bachelors degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Special Education from Asbury University. I started working at Harmony Learning Center in the Fall of 2022 and have loved the experience! I enjoy the process of getting to know all these awesome kids and having the opportunity to learn from them. 

Team Harmony

Harmony has a great team of energetic, talented and kind staff!

Hi I’m Ms. Morgan! I live in Lakeview but I’ve lived all over the country! My favorite places are Louisville, Dallas, and now Chicago! I’ve worked with children for over eight years! Some of my favorite job memories include Children’s Art Instructor, Elementary Theatre Teacher, Head Camp Counselor, and Enrichment Activities Specialist. I have also worked with non profits like the Salvation Army and Toys for Tots! I am CPR certified and Safe From Harm Trained. When I’m not working I love painting and acting! I am so excited to work with Harmony students and can’t wait to grow with them this year! 

I'm Ms. Caeli! I was raised in St. Charles, IL and moved to the city to pursue a BFA in Musical Theatre from the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University. After a few years of providing childcare to families in Lincoln Park, Roscoe Village, and Lincoln Square, I wanted to find a place where I could enhance and expand my experience teaching early childhood to elementary aged children. I joined the team at Harmony in February, 2023 assisting with preschool prep classes and after school care. Additionally, you can find me teaching music class with the Music Playhouse of Chicago. I feel so fortunate to combine my passions of performing and childcare while cultivating safe spaces for all!
