Hanaa Alexander, Owner
Tell us why you opened your Romp n’ Roll franchise?
I’m very excited about opening Romp n’ Roll in Raleigh! I’m energized by Romp n’ Roll’s innovative, play-based learning programs, and I look forward to having a positive impact on the children in my North Raleigh community. As a busy parent myself, I love that I’ll be able to offer a wide variety of classes for children 3 months through 5 years old, and I'm looking forward to provide the best learning opportunities for the children in my area.
What do you love most about owning Romp n’ Roll?
I find it very rewarding to build success from the ground up with a great team, to be part of my community, and to offer excellent customer service to children and their families in North Raleigh.

Tell us about your favorite Romp n’ Roll game, activity or song and tell us why it’s your favorite:
I love the creativity and imagination of our art activities. Our hands-on projects help connect children with the real world, widen their imagination, and improve their fine motor skills.
Tell us about your favorite part of the classes at Romp n’ Roll and why it’s your favorite:
Tumble Tunes is my favorite class that Romp n’ Roll offers. Given my background and extensive experience working with children, I believe music and movement is a great way to get children engaged in an activity and express themselves and their talents.
Tell us about your family and pets:
I have a bachelor of arts degree in languages, and I worked as an educator for 7 years. I have a passion for teaching, and as a former daycare owner, I find it is an absolute pleasure working with young children because I can watch them grow and can make a difference in their lives. My husband Joseph and I have two boys, Nathan who is 15, and Daniel who is 11. We also have an Australian Cattle Dog Oscar, he is 4 years old and is a very friendly and passionate furry friend. Our family enjoys travelling , discovering new places and making new friends!
