Christina Higa

Operations Manager

My name is Christina Higa. I have been with The Learning Experience since 2016, as an Operations Manager for franchised owned centers. My role is to provide leadership for centers. I support centers in their ongoing efforts to provide the highest level of service to our children and families. I have worked in the Early Education field for over 25 years. I hold a Child Development Associates and Director Credential through the State of Texas. I am also a member of NAEYC and Early Learners. The Learning Experience was built on three key educational and care principles: cognitive, physical, and social; or as we say at TLE®, "learn, play, and grow!" My goal is to ensure the highest quality early childhood education experience for your child. I want you to feel secure in the knowledge that you have chosen an excellent learning program with nurturing and knowledgeable teachers.
