CEO, and Founder of Together We Grow
Prerna Richards, CEO and Founder of TWG, started her career in early childhood over 30 years ago. Prerna’s professional journey allowed her the opportunities to work as teacher, preschool director, education consultant, program director and Vice President of an early childhood division. Prerna graduated Magna Cume Laude with a BAAS in applied technology and performance improvement and has a MBA which she earned with honors.
Prerna believes in order for children to thrive in life and for learning to begin, social emotional needs must first be met. Her educational philosophy is rooted in play based learning. New experiences create new pathways in young brains, helping children to develop skills like problem-solving, critical thinking, discovery and curiosity.
Research has established that 90% of the brain is developed by the child’s 5th birthday making the first few years of life critical for optimal brain growth and development. Based on this belief, Prerna has dedicated her professional career to educating parents and educators in order to help as many children as possible to have the best start in life.
Prerna currently lives in Dallas with her husband and is the proud grandmother of two girls.
