Meet The Team
I am a qualified Montessori Teacher and have done an NVQ4 in business management and at present I am one module from completing my B.A in childhood practice. I have run childcare facilities both down south and up here for the last 25 years. As a team we seek to give the children in our care variety, challenges, fun and freedom and empower them to have confidence in all they try.
After moving here from Poland I trained as a chef before realising a dream to become trained in sports development. I qualified in 2017 and am continuing with further qualifications while working full time at the after school club. I love spending time here and love imparting new games and sports to the children. As a tennis ambassador for ECSA I also have a leaning towards ensuring children have good hand eye co-ordination.
I have studied sports for over 5 years both at college and University. I have a great passion for swimming, which we do at the club on a Thursday in the school pool. I am really enjoying spending time with the children and getting to know their unique personalities. I love doing all activities with children from baking or art to fun outdoor activities.
Emily comes to us from her role as a Senior instructor at a 250 place outdoor residential centre where she had gained a Level 4 instructors qualification. With her love of motivating children to try new activities and her experience in promoting new games, Emily is joining us to introduce more of a “forest school” idea to the club.
I am a qualified music teacher from Argentina. I am a play supervisor and enjoy teaching the children some Spanish and love joining in with playground games, creating music, new crafts and introducing new sports to the children.
Lucy brings with her a wealth of creativity both in arts and crafts and with sports. She is passionate about having a positive impact on the children’s development. Lucy uses both inside and outside activities in order to find suitable and enjoyable play opportunities for each child.
I work as a Sports Playworker with the children on fun outdoor games. I run our Monday League football training and games. I work building up children’s fitness through fun. I have a degree in sports coaching and development which I attained with Honours.
‘At the club I have learned how to do magic, football, baking, card games and how to use manners’
‘You get to choose what you do and you get lots of choices’
‘I have made lots of new friends that I wouldn’t have if I didn’t come here’
‘We go outside a lot and I like to play football and a game called steal the bacon’
