Meet our Teachers & Care Providers

Little Scholars Next Preschool fosters an inclusive and safe environment for all children to grow and learn in their early stages of childhood.

Shalini Srivastava is the founder and facility director, she has been in the education field since she embarked on her journey as an elementary school teacher in India in 1990. Karpagam Srinivasan is the Pre-Kindergarten teacher since 2010, and Sumi Potthan is the Preschool teacher since 2013. Both program teachers have been teaching and perfecting each program’s curriculum for the past 9 years.

Our extended care providers are Mandeep Badyal and Radha Pinani. They work closely with children during their hours of social development and outdoor activities. Our optional dance classes are provided by Anapurna Rao through the “Aaja Nachale Let’s Dance” School, and optional gymnastics sessions are provided by California Gymnastic Services (http://www.califgymnastics.com/) Lastly, our Little Scholar’s Nest team would not be complete without our wonderful parents!
