As Kiddie Academy of Ashburn’s Director, I have over 25 years of experience in education, and I am honored to help Yashoda, Kiddie Academy of Ashburn’s owner, fulfill her mission of nurturing young hearts and minds. In my previous roles as an instructor at Northern Virginia Community College and a School Education Manager for an early learning center, fostering a sense of awe and wonder and building relationships with families have always been my primary goals. As Rachel Carson wrote, “if children are to keep alive their inborn sense of wonder … they need the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with them the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.” I strive to be that adult and look forward to offering your child/children the very best early childhood community and care.

I am a former teacher with over 15 years of experience in early childhood education and serving non-profit organizations. I received a degree in Sociology from the Tribhuvan University in Kathmandu, Nepal. Owning a school has been a long-term dream of mine and I am very excited to be a part of this journey. Helping children is my passion, and I feel proud to know that I am helping support their curious brains and securing our future through love, nurture, and care. I am a mother of two. My son, Pourash, graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in Computer Science and is now currently working for CapitalOne. My daughter, Prabisha, is a senior at George Mason University who is working towards becoming an environmental lawyer. My husband, Madhu, is a software engineer who spends his time helping me fulfill my dream. I want to assure you that your child will receive nothing but the best love, nurture, and care while at our school.
