Our aim is to develop all the skills your child needs to become the best version of themselves, not only in English but in Spanish as well! We value individuality and encourage children to be themselves, keeping their values and promoting the importance of seeing the beauty in other cultures.
Founder & Director
With over a decade of experience in a dozen countries around the world Lissarette settled down in New York to make her own family. Working with children has been the biggest passion of her life and having a child of her own now she aims to create for him and many others the educational model that focuses on the things she has seen are necessary for children to thrive in our modern society no matter where they go.
Her education started with a Bachelors in Education and now a Maters in Early childhood from the City College of New York.
Born and raised in the Dominican Republic with a fully bilingual education, I started my career as an assistant teacher at the age of 15. I continued my path into the education field and graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Education.
Over the years, I was blessed with opportunities to travel over a dozen different countries teaching ESL and doing volunteer work in local communities. These opportunities not only enriched me professionally but culturally and opened my horizons to incredible people and added several other languages to my repertoire.
As a Director, I’ve tested my ability to plan, design and implement curriculums from many different regions of the world. I passionately love my work as I am confident that we can create an incredible journey for your children, with a lifetime of love for languages and understanding what our different cultures have to offer.
While currently working as a Director of Finance for the New York’s First Proton Center in our own East Harlem Community, Viktor is now helping our dreams come true as a financial advisor at Pequeñines.
