iSTEAM

You will see iSTEAM in action when you visit our Creative World School Exploratorium™. Our hands-on approach integrates STEAM learning opportunities to develop critical thinking skills and investigate real-world ideas. Investigating real questions through inquiry learning is the foundation of our curriculum. Inquiry is the “i” in iSTEAM and encourages a student’s curiosity as they develop problem solving skills and build a foundation for lifelong learning.

Amy Dennis

My name is Amy Dennis. I am a native of Tampa and grew up right here in the Cross Creek area where I attended school from Kindergarten all the way up to college! I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Education from the University of South Florida. I married my husband, Mahlon, in 2010 and we are very proud parents of two boys under the age of 5. That means I have a lot of activity both at work and home!! I started my career as a Kindergarten teacher at a very small private school and then worked into the early education field as I started my family. I joined the Creative World Family in 2013 and I am so happy I did. I am looking forward to many years to come at CWS!

Robin Pentz

Hello, my name is Robin Pentz. I have been working in the early childhood field since 1973. My educational background includes a master’s degree in prekindergarten/primary education. My early childhood career has encompassed many roles. In Baltimore, Maryland, I was a teacher of three- and four-year old children, program director of a church-based preschool, director of an inner city one-stop infant/preschool/social services center. In Tampa, Florida, I was an executive director of a United Way agency, director of a hospital-based child care center and director of two college campus teaching lab schools. I have led three child development centers through national accreditation and was designated by the Early Learning Coalition of Hillsborough Quality Counts for Kids Program a Star Level four out of 488 licensed child care centers in Hillsborough County along with 20 other centers able to reach that achievement. I have one son, Matthew, a grandson, Landon. We enjoy family time cooking and gardening, going to the beach, swimming, and attending child focused festivals and activities. I also enjoy reading humorous mystery books. My fiancé and I are certified SCUBA divers. When time allows, we enjoy traveling and diving. I look forward to getting to know you and your family. I welcome you to share your family joys and experiences. My goal is to provide you and your child a positive preschool learning experience.

Bobby and Sara Singh

Bobby and Sara are both originally from South East Asia and came to the United States to pursue higher education in their respective fields. Their daughter, Ajuni, is in elementary school. She is an energetic little girl with insatiable curiosity! Sara is a Speech and Language Pathologist who graduated from the University of South Florida with a concentration in neuroscience, voice, and swallowing. Bobby is a Telecommunication and Software Engineer who graduated from the University of South Florida with a concentration in systems architecture, database design, and network administration.

The Singh family loves the outdoors and spends most of their leisure time outside exploring nature and wildlife. They are also quite active in sports- namely tennis and volleyball, with traveling being their next big passion. They have explored, backpacked, and camped in most of the US national parks. Both of them are very passionate about the world and environment, and love the idea of organic living and going green. Bobby and Sara are very willing, as members of this amazing community, to lend a helping hand with the skills they possess and give back as much as they can. They want to make a difference in the lives of every family and child who walks through the doors of their prestigious preschool. They are very committed to educating children and love to see them get excited by asking questions, testing their questions, and embracing their curiosity, initiation, creativity, and self-esteem.

The Singh's strongly believe that early learning and education through enriching and imaginative play, as is provided at Creative World School Cross Creek, is a stepping stone for facilitating and instilling curiosity and the love of learning throughout a child’s life. This helps to make children successful lifelong learners which is the ultimate goal. Bobby and Sara are so excited that their dreams and passion for a unique state of the art early education school for the children in this community has finally come to fruition!

Family buzz

My son has attended Creative World for a little over a year. He loves every second of his day at school. This was his first experience in a classroom and being away from Mommy. It is a comfort to me to know that my child loves school and all the teachers. It warms my heart to hear him say "Goodbye" to his teachers. This is an experience that I would love to share with other families. - Amy Shiver
