Brynmor’s first center will open in Lorton, VA in the Fall of 2023 at the newly redeveloped Liberty Market, and will serve children ages six weeks through five years with high-quality early childhood education & preschool. We are a privately owned business established with the belief that private companies have a responsibility to be a force for good. We believe that the growth of our company must be in partnership with the children and families we serve, the early childhood educators and staff we employ and the companies and public agencies with whom we partner.
High quality early childhood education is within reach for every child, family and community.
To ensure that: each child reaches his or her full potential; parents are free to do their best work with peace of mind because their children are safe, loved and thriving; and early childhood educators are respected and valued for the critical role they are playing in the development and learning of young children.
Brynmor was founded by Rhian Evans Allvin. Rhian has spent her career promoting and advocating for the federal, state and local systems and structures that lead to high quality early childhood education for all children and professional careers for early childhood educators. Rhian served as the CEO at the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) until May 2022. Earlier in her career Rhian was the CEO at First Things First, Arizona’s public-private partnership tasked with distributing more than $130 million each year in tobacco revenue to support a system of early childhood health and development and a Senior Advancement Officer at the Arizona Community Foundation where she helped donors connect their philanthropy to community needs.
There are a team of consultants supporting the launch of Brynmor with expertise in curriculum and assessment, professional development, the strategy and details that come with center openings, architectural and interior design and marketing and communications.
