The Childlife Preserve
Olayinka Akinlawon obtained a Bachelors in Cultural Anthropology in 2007 from Princeton University. Her degree and relevant coursework has been instrumental in the development of a curriculum that encompasses thoughtful action, civility, geography, community, science, cross-cultural studies, etiquette and more! In addition to her main studies, she took coursework in (Childhood) Developmental Psychology and (Childhood) Language Acquisition in addition to a semester long classroom research assignment in a Princeton, NJ preschool. She opened her first in-home daycare (Tiger Tails EduCare) immediately after graduation in 2007. That in-home daycare grew quickly and then moved to a commercial center in a strip mall in 2009 and became Tiger Hall (located in Princeton, NJ), a venture that offered childcare, preschool, kinder prep, tutoring, mommy-and-me classes and enrichment in the areas of German, Science, Reading Readiness, Spanish Immersion, Art, Music, Yoga, Dance and more! Summer Camps, Public Open Play and Birthday Parties were other popular features of this 3000 square foot venture. Tiger Hall was sold in September of 2013.
