OUR FOUNDER

Our founder, Mrs. Elena Melamed, is a classically trained musician who earned a master’s degree from the Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory. She enjoyed a successful career of musical performance and teaching for more than 12 years. Over time, her love of teaching grew beyond music and made her look into STEAM education – pioneering it at The R Child in Bergen County NJ.

today The Child is a 5000 square foot
educational facility in the heart of fort lee, nj

This one-of-a-kind space engages, stimulates, and nurtures children aged 1 to 14. Every class is unique and exposes children to music, art, science, history, and cultures through play, activities, and pure fun. In this stimulating and engaging environment, children can prepare for academic success, expand their worldview, improve their self-esteem, and nurture a lifelong love of learning!

At The R Child, we strive to help children uncover their true potential and become well-rounded adults one day. We proudly carry the values instilled by our founder and encourage kids to explore, experiment, and stay curious by asking questions. We help parents raise creative and curious kids, preparing them for the ever-changing world of tomorrow!
