About Shining Light

In January 2007, Lisa and Seamus Brown opened Lisa’s Playhouse in Roachville NB, just outside of Sussex, NB.  Lisa’s Playhouse has grown to include Tír na nÓg Forest School Sussex, Apohaqui After School Program and Tír na nÓg K-2 Experiental School. Lisa has an intense interest in highlighting the importance of nurturing a love of nature in children. She also knows the value of continuing education for her staff.


In 2017 and 2019, Lisa travelled to Italy to take part in an ECE Leadership Retreat, She wanted to create a way for our educators to have the same level of professional development here in New Brunswick without having to travel outside our province. She felt the educators that work with our small children needed to be celebrated for the work they do. And as a result of her vision, The Shining Light on Early Childhood Education Training was born.


Shining Light on ECE training was designed to reflect how vital the field of Early Childhood Education is because we are teaching future doctors, teachers, tradespeople and business owners! The event was planned with this in mind- to help fellow ECE to connect in a day filled with uplifting, revitalizing, educational workshops that will stay with each one long after the day is done!
