Our Founder’s Story
Our Founder – Sherlyn Lee
My personal educational journey began in Singapore. The 14 years in primary and secondary school eventually led me to Seabury Hall in Maui. After getting my bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Hawaii, I went to the University of London to complete the Post-Graduate Certificate of Education (PGCE). The foundational years left a deep imprint on my life as a student and my view of education. Throughout the years, I struggled with expressing myself creatively as I did not quite fit the mould of the traditional student. My challenges with dyslexia added to this.
I wanted to create a space that nurtures children at the very start of their learning journey to allow their innate talents to thrive.
Heartfield is a testament of my desire and passion to change lives, one child at a time.
I cherish the journey with every child who becomes a part of our family and I consider it a privilege to help equip them to prepare for a brighter, more fulfilling tomorrow. Our doors are open to you and your family.
