The child has one intuitive aim: self development

Mrs. Wise

Mrs. Christine Wise, our director, grew up in Lebanon, Indiana, not far from Indianapolis.  When her oldest was two, she began searching for quality preschool programs and found Meridian Hills Co-op.  Both of her children attended and enjoyed the preschool and kindergarten programs.

Chris believes that a strong preschool program is developed with teachers and parents working together.  She believes that people do their best when they are valued, and she believes in the power of play and the effect it has on young developing minds.  Her beliefs were helped shaped by her time as a parent at the school where she served as co-president, VP of membership, group chair and VP of parent ed and CPT.

When she isn’t assisting the leadership of Meridian Hills Co-op, you can find Chris with her husband and children enjoying a Marvel movie (she’ll always discuss the movies and characters with you) or the latest Disney flick.  She loves plants but doesn’t like to garden; nevertheless she is working to make her yard full of native plants. Her favorite restaurants are wherever there is good food, good drinks and friends.
