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.

Manjul and Rupa Shah

Rupa and Manjul Shah come from humble beginnings. They grew up in a small town in India, and came to the United States through the gift of education. After leading fulfilling careers as computer Engineers, they followed their dreams to build their first childcare center when their second daughter was born. When they sought a preschool that provided both a nurturing environment, and a fantastic education, they were hard pressed to find one; they decided to build one themselves. Now, Rupa and Manjul are residents of Lithia, Florida, dedicated to applying innovative methods to providing a fantastic education to every child in their community. Rupa and Manjul are proud parents of two daughters. Their oldest daughter is an MD student at Northwestern University, Chicago. Their younger daughter is a senior at Newsome high. Manjul has a MS in computer science from University of South Florida. Rupa is a licensed occupational therapist. Both Manjul and Rupa have years of experience managing and growing teams. Manjul has a passion for the outdoors. Rupa loves to travel and experience new cultures. Rupa and Manjul Shah LOVE to work with children, and have owned and operated four successful preschools in the past 15 years. Rupa and Manjul started as franchisees with Creative World nearly 10 years ago. They have received tremendous support and love from the administrators, owners, and directors who are a part of the Creative World family. Manjul and Rupa strive to build teams that can deliver outstanding childcare by allocating responsibility, creating effective channels for communication and having a great working relationship. What excites Rupa and Manjul most about their work is breaking down traditional barriers in early education to provide enriching environments tailored to the unique learning style of each student.
