Welcome to Ready Roos Early Learning Academy, Cranberry Twp !

Ready Roos Early Learning Academy was founded by owner-operators Marsha and Steven Karanikos.


Marsha is a PA certified teacher with more than 20 years of experience as an active teaching professional and Learning Center Coordinator. Marsha obtained a mathematics and computer science degree before beginning her professional career as a software developer with Cincinnati Bell Information Systems in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Steven is an Information Technology consultant whose career spans 37 years providing services to clients in business sectors such as Education, Finance, Logistics, Telecommunications and many others. In his 'spare time', Steven is a passionate sports photographer with a portfolio reflecting his involvement with professional and collegiate teams locally and internationally.

Steven and Marsha met while working on a telecommunications software development project in Melbourne, Australia. They have 5 children. Their eldest son (Political Science & Economics), eldest daughter (Psychology/Neuroscience) are both graduates of the University of Pittsburgh.
Second daughter is a graduate of the Rochester Institute of Technology (Management Information Systems). Their fourth, a sophomore at Case Western Reserve University and their fifth, has graduated from Central Catholic High School in Pittsburgh and will be attending The Ohio State University in the fall.

“We are excited to share our personal and professional story with all of you. Our combined professional qualifications and shared interests inspired us to open our first learning center 25 years ago in Melbourne, Australia. The initial model of the business was focused on math education for students in grades 3-12. 

Our services grew to include tutoring for school English assignments based on demand from the families we were assisting. In 2013, after 8 years of serving the community in Melbourne, Australia we decided to make a personal move and relocated our family to Wexford, PA.

In 2015, we opened a similar learning center on the Wexford flats, across from the Starbucks located on Perry Highway - ‘MathZone – Wexford’ and shortly thereafter, ‘MathZone – Cranberry Twp'. Our tutoring model continued to offer mathematics support and was further developed to offer students learning opportunities in English.

Programs such as learning to read, reading for comprehension, writing and standardized test preparation were made available to students in grades 1 and 2. We completed the curriculum offerings when we introduced our school readiness program for our youngest learners, ages 3-5. Our program has been running for the last 5 years and has helped many young learners establish their foundational knowledge in preparation for their educational journey ahead.

In early 2023, we decided to expand on the key curriculum features of our successful school readiness program and converted our Cranberry Twp location into a dedicated learning academy focused on preparing our young students for preschool and their journey beyond.

We are looking forward to getting to know more of the families in and around Cranberry Township and invite you to schedule a no-obligation tour and learn more about our program and enrollment process.

Kindest regards,
Steven & Marsha Karanikos
