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.

Hello, my name is Andrew Dunavant. I have been working with children for over ten years. My first job was with Manassas City Public Schools as a substitute teacher and PALS tutor. During that time I also became an attendant for a child with special needs. Six years ago, I took over as the manager of Laser Tag Manassas and operated that location until 2020 when I joined the Kiddie Academy family. I believe that even the smallest positive influence in a child’s life can result in incredible change.
