Hi, my name is Amrita Ghai and I am the Director and Head Teacher of Curious Explorers Academy. My love for working with children started over 10 years ago when I was working as a nanny. This led me to earn my BA in Child and Adolescent Development and a Master's in Educational Administration.
Since then I have taught preschool and elementary school students and that has solidified my passion for education and shaping our future community. My favorite age group to work with are 3 and 4 year olds because it is a very impressionable age and I want to initiate their love of learning early. I founded Curious Explorers Academy for these reasons and because it brings me great joy to see children happy when they have learned something new.
Through working with elementary school students, I have seen the skills students needed to be successful and our curriculum is scaffolded to give children the tools to thrive.
Hello, new children, my name is Sheri Dillard. I have worked in Early Education for 14 years, with children ranging from ages 0 thru 6 years of age. I currently have 23 units in Early Eduction from Ohlone College. My experience includes working in both large child care centers and in home centers. My favorite thing about working with children is watching them learn, grow, and explore their environment. I look forward with working all of you!
