Smriti Datta

Director of Early Childhood Education

"Education is a lifetime experience." 

Smriti Datta has been a part of the Stratford School family for 14 years, and has over 20 years of experience in preschool and elementary education. Before taking on her current role as Director of Early Childhood Education at Stratford School's Palo Alto campus, she taught preschool, where she was recognized as a mentor for the preschool program.

Smriti sees educators as helping to build a better future for the world. As an educator, she believes each and every child is unique, and every child has the potential to share something new with the world.

Smriti feels that it is important to work in an environment where students are happy to come to school and love to learn new things every day. She has found that Stratford School is a place that provides high quality education along with a nurturing atmosphere.
