Jyotika Mehta

Founder and CEO

I’m a mother of 3 young children and an exprienced child care provider.

I have been working with children of age 1- 14 for the last 10 years and I completely understand the needs of children and how to fulfill those needs.

My vision is to establish a well planned, well structured and very well implemented after school program that promotes academic and social-emotional development and promote wellness outcomes for the youth.

I have a Bachelor degree in Economics from Delhi University.

I have been in the software industry for more than 15 years and work full time as a Director at a publicly traded Company.

Apart from this I have been involved with Young Explorers since its inception and help manage its Technology advancements and financials.

Technology has become a part of everyones life and at Young Explorers we feel we need to introduce children into technology at an early age. My goal is to make every child at Young Explorers aware of the basics of computer science and how they can use it for solving problems, critical thinking and designing systems.

This is why we have introduced classes such as Lego, Model Making and now Computer Programming at Young Explorers.

Nyika Wynne


My name is Nyika Wynne. I was born and raised in Sacramento. I have been in the Ece field for 13 years
and preschool/infant teacher for the past 10years. My passion is working with children and families in
my community. I am a mother of two girls Alani 19 years and Nohea 2 years old. I am an active mentor in my community with young children and youth. My hobbies are taking family trips, cooking, gardening outdoors, shopping, mentoring teachers and teaching Sunday school at my church. It has been a great experience working with many different preschools in the Sacramento area learning different techniques to enrich children’s development. I have been a preschool teacher at
state funded programs where curriculum and assessments are very important. I have worked at Waldorf and Montessori schools where environment and children responsibilities play a major part during time spent at school. Lately I’ve experienced time at play based schools where children have the opportunity to explore and learn through play. I was also a dance teacher for 6 years to young girls in the Sacramento. I hope to bring all of these learning styles to the children here at Young Explorers.
In 2013 is when I decided I wanted to teach preschool and work with families in my community. I attended school at Sacramento City college and Cosumnes River college. Where I studied Early
childhood education. Continuing my education in the early childhood field I have accomplished
studying the operations, administration and collaborative working with staff. I am currently enrolled
in seminars and training classes during my spare time to educate myself and keep updated on new ways to educate young children.
I believe that children should always have a clean and safe environment .Plus have an enriched environment set for play and learning. I am very excited and look forward to working with you all.

Learning is an ongoing adventure, a journey that we all travel every day together. I have truly enjoyed mine.

I love working with children and adults of all ages, in all subjects, but I focus my strengths in the areas of English, Writing, Public Speaking and the Humanities (History, Government, etc…) I come to Young Explorers with enthusiasm for the task of teaching your children and hope to along the way learn as much from them as I hope they learn from me.

I received my A.A. degree from Ohlone College then my B.A. degree in History, with a minor in Writing from the California State East Bay, and Later completed my Masters degree in Education at Ashford University.
