“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Nelson Mandela
These words of wisdom by Nelson Mandela has been the guiding source in my life. I completed my Bachelors of Science in Nursing from The University of Texas at Arlington and worked at the Methodist hospital for a decade. I worked at post-surgical and intensive care unit where educating patients, families, and staff was one of my priorities and also the favorite part of my job. I enjoyed finding creative ways to convert complex concepts into the simplest forms.
I have been volunteering as an early childhood educator for many years and find tremendous joy in sparking children’s curiosity through a hands-on curriculum. I have completed my Director’s certification from the National Institute of Child Care Management. I have two beautiful girls, Zoya and Sophia, ages 7 and 11 and my husband Imran is a Certified Public Accountant.
It had been my dream to work with children and when my best friend Rosie and I decided to start a preschool, we explored many options. After months of vigorous research and talking to multiple people we discovered Ivy Kids and were immediately drawn to the school’s proven qualities especially the IvyPrep Curriculum. We found the focus on each child at every school remarkable.
Rosie and Jay Jinnah are professional entrepreneurs with successful accessories and clothing companies, Silver Moon and Southern Grace Apparel. Rosie serves as Creative Director and Jay as the Chief Financial Officer. They have been lifelong volunteers at every school their kids have been at and in their respective communities. Rosie holds a Bachelor’s degree in Management Information Systems from The University of Texas at Arlington and Jay has a Bachelors in Business from The University of Texas at Dallas. Rosie and Jay have two kids, Arisa and Cyrus ages 7 and 11 and both were born in the great and unique City of McKinney.
Both our families feel so blessed to be part of the community and look forward to partnering and welcoming your family to our Ivy Kids family!
