Offering The Best Childhood Preparation for Social and Academic Success.

Our teachers blend the highest standards in early childhood development with nurturing care.

Sandeep, Owner I was trained as a neuroscientist and an educator, I taught physiology at the University and High School level. I have published a peer reviewed article on brain development.

We are building an educational community in Rochester Hills, not just starting a new business. I have two young children, and I am very active in their upbringing. We are excited to begin this journey and hope to take care of your children as they are our own.

Thank you,
Sandeep Chada

Viktoria, Lead Teacher
Hello, my name is Ms. Viki. I was born and raised in Pècs, Hungary. I’m the lead teacher in Preschool. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Childhood Education at the University of Pedagogy in Hungary in 2006. Obtaining my master’s degree in childhood education is next on my bucket list.
During my over 15 years of experience in Childhood Education, I’ve had the opportunity to assist Youth Directors all over the world while working in the cruise ship industry. Mentoring future teachers, coaching young basketball players are some of the things I enjoy. But, I find my greatest joy is in helping young kids discover themselves and their surroundings, while developing the tools necessary to become successful grown-ups.

In my personal life, I enjoy baking (sweets) or, cooking Hungarian cuisine for my husband.

Grace, Assistant Teacher My name is Grace Nowak and I am an Assistant Teacher in the Young Toddler Classroom.

If time permits, I would like to pursue getting my Child Development Associate (CDA) certificate to enhance my care giving background skills. I enjoy taking care of children and helping them learn new things and developing well rounded people skills. It is always a positive experience when the children let me know they are happy to see me and to be with me; I then know I am doing a good job.

I have one daughter, who is going on 15 years old. I am proud to say she is a very good student who is also a competitive figure skater and plays piano. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my daughter and husband going to skating competitions, trying new restaurants, and the movies.
