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.learn more
ownersSuleman and Shahina Makhani
Suleman and I are originally from India but have lived most of our lives in USA. We have lived in Tampa Bay area since 1994 and have been Florida residents for last 32 years. Our children, Samir and Sarah, attended early childhood school first in Temple Terrace and later in Northdale. They both attended Westchase elementary, Williams Magnet middle and Robinson IB high school before going to top universities. I have been actively involved in faith based schools as Vice Principal for three years and then as Principal for three years. I graduated in India with degree in Business Admin before moving to USA. Suleman completed BS in Mechanical Engineering and MS in Computer Science from Florida International University in Miami. I have owned and managed franchise businesses for the last eight years. I was involved in the technology sector for twenty years prior to that. We strongly believe in community service and have been involved in various non-profit, charitable, and faith-based institutions for over 3 decades. We were looking to develop an early childhood educational business. We saw in Creative World School everything we were planning to have in our school and therefore we decided to buy a franchise of Creative World School. It is a well known fact that a child’s brain develops mostly in first three to five years of his/her life. We want to offer the best in early childhood education in order to lay a strong foundation for the children who will attend our school.
leadership teamAshley Martino
I am Ashley Martino and I am proud to be a part of the Leadership Team of Creative World School at Land O' Lakes. I was born in Titusville, Florida and raised in Daytona Beach, Florida where I graduated high school. I began my career in Early Education in 2008 as a two year old teacher. Three months later, the Owner asked me to train as a Director. I’ve worked in childcare ever since. I obtained my degree in Early Childhood Education Management in 2012 and began working for Creative World in November 2015. Shortly after being hired I was recognized for my leadership skills, promoted to Team Leader, and one month later to the Leadership Team. I am engaged to be married and I have one stepson and three God-daughters. I enjoy learning, outdoor activities, and exploring new things. Everyone around me asks me for advice because they enjoy my positive energy. I enjoy building people up and encouraging their potential as everyone deserves to be great!
CW has been a great starting point for my child. She is very outgoing and extremely creative in her skills and overall communication style. I have no doubt that she will be well prepared and ahead of the game when she enters kindergarten. - Diana Moorer
