Barbara

Teacher and Education Psychologist

This is my tenth year at the school, a decade already, time flies…, and am very proud to be a part of this great team; it is certainly the best part of my work.

I consider myself very fortunate to work here, because I think this is the best nursery school in Estepona.

My work is my passion, my enthusiasm and my true calling. I love these little monsters who accompany me every year, it is always a great adventure. I am very grateful to their parents for placing their trust in my work. I will keep trying to improve myself every year.

María

Teacher

Since the day I crossed that blue door, I felt something inside me that swirled around, stirred and fluttered. Perhaps, it would be normal to think that these feelings were the usual nerves when attending your first job. Those fears and insecurities that overcome us when trying to give the best of us and try not to disappoint, to “measure up”.

As time goes by, you adapt, something which is really easy when you find people like those who inhabit this magical place, and great bonds are developed with the colleagues and the children. These ties get stronger until we end up feeling part of one big family.

I think that is why this place is so magical, because it is HOME, that place where there is nothing to fear, where we can be ourselves, without fear, without worrying about not meeting expectations, this place that is a refuge, of calm and peace.

They say that when we are in love we feel butterflies fluttering in our stomach and so it happens that, today, I know that I’m in love with my profession.

“Big” Irene

Teacher of 5 years old children and Educational Director

When you start a course, the objectives should be achieved with perseverance, hard work, creativity and enthusiasm.

All this is possible to achieve by combining, on the one hand, professionalism and experience and, on the other, discovery, joy, patience, curiosity and, above all, lots of love.

There is no better reward for a teacher to welcome and say goodbye to a student beaming his smile, because that is the only reason that makes us proud of our work. Good chemistry between the child and the teacher is the essential prerequisite for achieving brilliant results both in the present and in the future.

That is my struggle, that is my dedication and that is my life, because their happiness is also mine.

Holder of Higher Diploma in Child Education

In which job do they welcome you every day with a hug and the best of smiles?

What work will give you the chance to live new experiences every day, and never to stop learning?

What work will let you be smeared with paint, the most fun of all?

When September begins, thousands of butterflies flutter in my stomach and when the end of June arrives you cry realizing that they must go, but with the satisfaction of having watched them grow and be part of this first stage of their life.

And the children, I will never forget them, because every single one of them will leave their mark on my heart.

Carmen

School Cook

My name is Carmen and I am the cook of the School, well, not only the cook, sometimes I am a mother, sometimes their comfort or simply Carmen, a mixture of qualities which makes my job so amazing.

I’m not the typical cook secluded in the kitchen, who works to feed the children, but am also part of this family, where I not only put love into my dishes to meet my expectations in this project that we have in the school, but I also intend through them to reach the heart of each of my children.

Yolanda

Holder of Higher Diploma in Child Education

My job, my passion; since I started my studies to obtain the Diploma it was very clear to me what was my calling. My future would be tied to the kids in order to educate and love them. Every day with them makes me feel happier. To be able to be with them while they grow and to watch all their accomplishments make me proud.

For all this, I wish to thank each of the parents who have placed their trust in us all.

Kathy

English Teacher and Holder of Diploma in Child Education

I find my work extremely rewarding, both in the years when I have been an English and support teacher and when I have been the teacher of a class.

The smiles and joy when I see them every morning is one of the things that make me want to get up to go to work.

I love being part of their lives, helping them grow as human beings in all aspects of life.

“Small” Irene

Holder of Higher Diploma in Child Education

I am the oldest, 20 years working in the school. I love my job, I love my “babies” and I love watching them grow while they take small steps throughout their life at the Center.
