Founder

Little Academy is my 'third child'. I created them with my younger daughter in mind, because I could not find a kindergarten that met our needs - especially linguistic ones.

I am a lawyer by education, I worked in the media for 15 years. After giving birth to my younger daughter, Helenka, I decided to quit my job in a corporation and create a network of English-speaking preschools. Granting me exclusivity in Poland by the British Council for the program dedicated to preschoolers entitled “Learning Time with Timmy” put the seal on the decision and I sprang into action ...

Today we have 4 preschools ... It is my great joy that I listen to the children who speak English in the kindergarten and observe our teachers from all over the world. I am pleased with the international community that we create together ...

I was very lucky to meet Marzena - Managing Director, on my way. We create a harmonious duo in which my business experiences and her pedagogical and managerial experience are intertwined with the experiences of the mothers that we are.

Creating Little Academy has become our passion, we do it with great commitment ... every small and big progress is our success. We invite you to join the adventure😊

Psychologist

I am a graduate of psychological studies at the Catholic University of Lublin and postgraduate studies in pedagogical preparation for psychologists. I gained experience in working with children by working in kindergartens, during individual revalidation classes with the youngest and by participating in numerous trainings and courses, including in the field of work with children with developmental difficulties, neurodidactics, creative thinking. Acquiring new and up-to-date knowledge is very important to me, which is why I also completed the Social Skills Trainer Course, an internship at the Sensory Integration Therapy Center, and in the coming months I will defend my postgraduate work in the field of Sensory Integration. Working with children is a constant inspiration for me and a challenge to look for new therapeutic solutions and my own professional development. In contact with children, I want to show them from the very beginning that their emotions are important to me and regardless of whether it is joy, longing or anger, they should be named and properly taken care of.

  • Masaż logopedyczny
  • Terapia ręki I i II stopnia
  • Logorytmika
  • Opóźniony rozwój mowy – diagnoza i terapia

Do każdego dziecka podchodzę indywidualnie i dokładam wszelkich starań, aby prowadzone przeze mnie zajęcia były ciekawe i kreatywne.

Little Academy to moje ‘trzecie dziecko’ 😉. Stworzyłam je z myślą o moje młodszej córce, ponieważ nie mogłam znaleźć przedszkola, które spełniałoby nasze potrzeby – przede wszystkim językowe.

I am a lawyer by education, I worked in the media for 15 years. After giving birth to my younger daughter, Helenka, I decided to quit my job in a corporation and create a network of English-speaking preschools.

Tworzenie Little Academy stało się naszą pasją, robimy to z dużym zaangażowaniem… każdy mały i duży postęp jest naszym sukcesem. Zapraszamy do wspólnej przygody😊

Psychologist

Jestem absolwentką studiów psychologicznych Katolickiego Uniwersytetu Lubelskiego oraz studiów podyplomowych z przygotowania pedagogicznego dla psychologów. Doświadczenie w pracy z dziećmi zdobywałam w pracując w przedszkolach, podczas indywidualnych zajęć rewalidacyjnych z najmłodszymi oraz w uczestnicząc w licznych szkoleniach i kursów m.in. z zakresu pracy z dziećmi z trudnościami rozwojowymi, neurodydaktyki, twórczego myślenia. Zdobywanie nowej i aktualnej wiedzy jest dla mnie bardzo ważne, dlatego ukończyłam także Kurs Trenera Umiejętności Społecznych, staż w Centrum Terapii Integracji Sensorycznej a w najbliższych miesiącach bronić będę pracę podyplomową z zakresu Integracji Sensorycznej.

Praca z dziećmi jest dla mnie nieustanną inspiracją i wyzwaniem do poszukiwania nowych rozwiązań terapeutycznych oraz własnego rozwoju zawodowego. W kontakcie z dziećmi zależy mi na tym, by pokazywać im od samego początku, że ich emocje są dla mnie ważne i niezależnie od tego, czy jest to radość, tęsknota, czy złość należy je nazywać i odpowiednio o nie zadbać.

Zależy mi na tym, aby stworzyć wyjątkowe miejsce, w którym dzieci będą otoczone opieką i będą czuły się bezpiecznie. Od jedenastu lat pracuję w oświacie i szkolnictwie wyższym. Jestem filologiem polskim, ukończyłam studia podyplomowe z organizacji i zarządzania oświatą oraz z treningu umiejętności społecznych (TUS). W pracy z dziećmi stawiam na podążanie za ich potrzebami oraz wielopłaszczyznowe rozwijanie ich potencjału. Wychodzę bowiem z założenia, że w każdym dziecku tkwi jakiś talent, który może być umiejętnie rozwijany pod nadzorem nauczyciela
