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.

Nilsa Otero

My name is Nilsa Otero and I have an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education, my Director’s certification, and additional Early Childhood training. I am originally from New York but when my daughter turned one, we moved to Florida. I joined Creative World 29 years ago! Our founder, Ms. Billie, interviewed and hired me on the spot. I have two children, both of whom went to Creative World, and a precious grandson who just turned one year old! I began working at Creative World as a kindergarten teacher at a private school in Temple Terrace. I then became a Director and then a Regional Director with Creative World. Having been around Creative World for so many years, I know that the love we have for our children’s growth and development sets us apart from many other educational institutions! We give children every opportunity to use their imaginations and creativity on a daily basis! I am passionate about our curriculum and the exploration our children enjoy every day.

Ashley 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
