Alumni Spotlight

Nikki Salkar

“Little Tyke definitely makes being a well-rounded student possible,” according to Little Tyke alumnus Nikki Salkar. Yes, preschool at Little Tyke taught Nikki her alphabet and how to color in the lines, but the Little Tyke culture and educational philosophy also inspired her dedication to academics and her passion to become a leader in the Birdville marching band. Nikki, started at Little Tyke in September of 1998, just about six weeks after she was born.. Nikki, has been in the band since 6th grade where she currently plays the clarinet. She spends most of her time practicing after school so she can better herself for school competitions and football games. Nikki expressed that growing up at Little Tyke has helped her become a strong leader and also, provided her with the social and emotional skills necessary for her continued success.
