We can’t wait to bring our Exploratorium™ to Starkey Ranch, Florida so you can experience the WOW of our schools and see iSTEAM in action.

Our Community

Our Creative World School will be located near Starkey Ranch, Odessa, Florida, conveniently located in the heart of the Starkey Ranch subdivision at the northwest corner of Long Spur and Lake Blanche Drive across from the new elementary school. Our beautiful preschool will educate the young children of families who live in the Odessa Starkey Ranch Area. We will be enriching this awesome community with our Early Education School, filled with an exciting curriculum and STEAM-based learning. Much more than just a daycare, we offer learning opportunities and childcare for all ages and we are enrolling new little ones every day!

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.

Mike and Shama Colquhoun

Mike and Shama began their journey with Creative World School in 2015 when they opened their Oakstead location. Shama graduated from the University of Miami with a BS in Public Relations and Creative Writing. Mike graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio, TX with a BS in Business Administration and Accounting. Shama worked at various Public Relations and Marketing agencies before opening Creative World School – Oakstead. Mike worked in accounting for five years and still holds his CPA license. Mike had a successful 10-year sales career before working full time at their school.

Mike and Shama were inspired by Creative World’s unique philosophy, which encourages and challenges children to learn. With three young girls of their own, Karina, Alexa and Sienna, Mike and Shama recognize the importance of providing the highest level of quality care and education in the safest, most secure environment available. "Our goal is to create a safe environment where children can reach their full potential through creative exploration and quality, dynamic programs in the classroom,” said Shama. It is this commitment that led to their Oakstead location receiving Creative World School’s first-ever “Out of This World Award” in 2019.

Mike and Shama find it a privilege to serve the Oakstead community and are excited to provide the same quality of childcare to Starkey Ranch and the surrounding communities!
