Ella NikolavskyElla Nikolavsky is a talented and experienced teacher dedicated her life to rise up hundreds of children as creative, kind, and responsible members of the future society. Her motto is to light up a star shining in every child.

In 2008 Ella Nikolavsky and “Children making Tomorrow” established an Academy of Creative Studies to provide educational classes for kids and express their artistic skills, develop academic aptitudes, esthetic and moral skills

To perceive this goal she studied Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education and Psychology in Odessa University, and became a day care teacher in 1972 in Odessa, a Russian city, where she was born in 1953. In 1994 she moved to the USA, and did everything to keep her talent active. She opened her first Home day care in 1999, and started working with American children giving them her love and introducing to them great culture of Russia.

In 2001 Ella Nikolavsky and her Day Care “Shining Stars” won The Governor Quality Care Awards. Her after school program attended by many former day care students inspired her to found an International Organization “Children Making Tomorrow” to organize children and make them work together to help the world became a better place to live. Working in collaboration with Detroit International Institute children from “Ella’s Stars” Day Care performed at the Novi International Festival “Passport of the Nations”, 2007. In 2006 they performed at the Fourth Annual Slavic Language Day at the University of Michigan and organized a fund-raising concert for children suffered from Middle Eastern Conflict. In 2005 “Ella’s Stars” took a part in the Ice Warriors premiere charity event “Flavor of Russia” organized for the Salvation Army hurricane relief efforts, and in 2004, “Ella’s Stars” performed for a fund raising event for children suffered from tsunami in Indonesia and more.

The great success for Ella was 2006 when children of “Ella’s Stars” became the Laureates of the International Televised talent Competition “Our talented Children 2006”, New York.
