Meet The Team
I am a qualified Montessori Teacher and have done an NVQ4 in business management and completed my B.A in childhood practice. I have run childcare facilities both down south and up here for the last 30 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.
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.
I recently finished my Masters in Outdoor Environmental Education at the University of Edinburgh. For the past 5 years I have been involved in teaching children of different ages about the environment, both within the school context, and outdoors. I am really excited to share my knowledge and passion for the outdoors with all at the after-school club.
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.
I come from Argentina where I spent the last 10 years teaching English in primary schools. I have a passion for working with children and feel that there is always a lot to learn from the as well. I´ve studied art and design and love creating arts and crafts projects with the kids. I also enjoy science and languages and always try to present the children with interesting new ideas.
I am originally from the US, where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in English Education. I have a huge passion for working with children and helping them explore their own curiosity with creative projects and interactive learning! I have spent the past couple of years overseas studying classical drawing and painting and am now earning my Masters in Art History. I have tons of fun art projects in mind, as well as science experiments and swimming pool games that I can’t wait to introduce to the kids!
I am a qualified Secondary Drama teacher and have worked as a freelance drama practitioner in various schools and clubs in Scotland and overseas. I enjoy practical activities which help to develop important social skills. I also love doing arts and crafts with a keen eye for upcycling opportunities. When possible, I enjoy outdoor learning and encourage children to exercise their curiosity to promote independence.
I come from the south of Spain where I obtained my qualification as a primary teacher. I have 20 years’ experience working with children. I love the outdoors and doing arts and crafts and will be working on developing the childrens physical and creative skills
