Read about the Director, Uma Alahari

My name is Uma Alahari and I am the Director of the Carl Hankey YMCA. As an education professional with fifteen years national and international experience in PK – 12 education from India, New Zealand and United States, I carry with me a wealth of knowledge. I have a very strong educational background with a PhD in Child Development and Early Childhood Education.

I believe in a developmentally appropriate play-based curriculum. My focus would be to provide opportunities for children to explore and learn through responsive relationships with people and environment. I see the role of the teacher as a facilitator who can engage, support, and extend children’s curiosity and dispositions to lifelong learning. At Carl Hankey, we design a program in which parents and teachers develop a partnership in the child’s care and education. I am very excited to work with all the children, teachers and families at Carl Hankey.

“The greatest impact on my child has been positive social and mental development due to interaction – at all levels – with kids of different ages and constant positive nurturing by the staff. Thank you!”
