Together with my wife, I envisioned opening a childcare center after our unsuccessful efforts in finding quality educational childcare that offers a well-rounded environment and upbringing for our children Ishani and Aaryav. I believe in family values and importance of providing a loving and caring environment which attribute cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development of children at an early age. Now, I am proud and grateful to be a part of the educational childcare community through Kiddie Academy. I strive to shape children into responsible and compassionate citizens who can succeed in the future. I have a Bachelors of Science degree in information Systems from Pennsylvania State University. During college, I completed an internship at Disney World where I learned to treat each member as part of the Disney family. I admire the philosophy and culture it provides to their clients, and I will create the "Disney" philosophy and culture here at our Kiddie Academy center to show parents that they are a vital part of the Kiddie Academy of North Bel Air family.

Growing up, I always believed in Nelson Mandela’s philosophy that "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world". Education begins as soon as a child is born. To flourish the educational growth in children, they need the proper environment. I envisioned to provide such environment for young children after discovering rh lack of such environment during our unsuccessful search of educational childcare for our children, Ishani and Aaryav. At Kiddie Academy, I strive to provide caring, nurturing, safe and academic environment which is crucial for children emotional, intellectual, physical and social development. I am blessed to offer children an environment that will help shape them into compassionate and responsible citizens. I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Chemical Engineering, Masters of Science in Chemical Engineering and Masters in Business Administration. I am proud and grateful to be a part of the educational child care community through Kiddie Academy.
