Sweta Mittal

Owner and Franchisee

Meet Sweta Mittal, the vibrant owner of our preschool! Originally from India, Sweta embarked on a journey to the United States after her marriage in 2009. In the past, she led a dynamic career as a Japanese Interpreter and Translator for renowned organizations, showcasing her linguistic prowess and versatility in the professional world.

Her transition to life in the United States was filled with challenges, but it also sparked new passions and opportunities. Sweta’s dedication to childcare was ignited by the challenges she faced as a parent, inspiring her to support others navigating similar journeys. Volunteering at schools and teaching Bollywood dance to children became Sweta’s new avenues for self-expression and community engagement. The positive response she received fueled her passion for teaching and interacting with kids, ultimately leading her to pursue formal education in child development.

Today, as the proud owner of our preschool, Sweta combines her diverse cultural experiences, linguistic skills, and passion for teaching to create a nurturing environment where children can thrive. Her journey exemplifies resilience, adaptability, and a commitment to lifelong learning, making her an invaluable asset to our school community.
