Hester’s Creative Schools is recognized by the national child care magazine, Child Care Exchange, as “the longest standing privately-owned child care business in North America.” Founded in 1949, Hester’s has served the child care needs of Greensboro and High Point.

The Greensboro Commission on the Status of Women honored Henrietta Hester Harris in March of 1997 as a “Woman Of Achievement.” In 1999 she received the highest honor in the state of North Carolina when she was inducted into “The Order of the Long Leaf Pine” by Governor James B.
