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.
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.
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 have a Bachelor’s degree in Sport Science and Physical Education and I am registered with the General Teaching Council. Moreover, I am level 6 fitness instructor, advanced health & exercise specialist. I have been working in the schools since 2016 and I am really happy to share my passion for sports with my students.
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.
With a strong academic background in both mental health and sport psychology, my aim is to provide the children with fun physical activities that will help bolster their cognitive development and socialisation skills. As an athlete who has played international rugby, I know first-hand about the benefits that one derives from playing a multitude of sports growing up. Drawing from a wide variety of sports, I seek to instil the importance of positive communication, self-control and perseverance.
