Zuzanna Danilewicz
Head of Seedlings Nature Kindergarten

I have been caring for children for many years in different countries. I taught them English and supported their development on different levels. While working for the first time at preschool in Japan, I have experienced how enriching and fulfilling is caring for the littlest ones. I decided to educate myself more and received AMI Montessori Diploma in London. Nevertheless, later on I understood that closing yourself in one method is very limiting. I also realised how important it is to connect children to nature. In my free time I enjoy exploring forests, practising mindfulness, running. For a while I have been trying to slow down and withdraw from hectic city life devoting more time to closest people around me.

I am an art therapist and socio-cultural animator. I've been participating in various international projects. During the European Voluntary Service, I've spent a year in Portugal and I'm always happy to go back there again. Working with children and youth gives me a lot of joy and satisfaction. My free time is filled with, amongst others, knitting, nature photography and planning new adventures.

Younger group assisstant

I graduated from the Wrocław Music Academy where I studied Music Theory. I became a professional journalist, contributing to Poland's jazz magazine. It's one of the reasons that I'm familiar with and knowledgeable about musical improvisation, that I also implement in the way of planning free time and playing with kids. I'm trying to open children's hearts to music, art and nature through encouraging them to create, sharing moments of listening and making music, spending lots of time in surroundings of green, as I have done as a mother of twin boys. I love dancing, bicycle travelling, mountain hiking, sleeping in a tent and digging in the soil. By looking through my children's eyes I've been discovering the world again.

I have graduated from psychology and have particular interest in developmental psychology, especially infants and children - and how their cognition, thinking and feeling changes with time. When it comes to interacting with children, attachment parenting is very close to my heart.

I like to spend time outdoors with the closest ones - my husband and 4-year-old son. We are usually camping, making bonfires, hiking, cycling, playing football. When indoors, I love reading books, cooking vegetarian meals and playing board games.

I graduated biology at the University of Life Sciences. I am passionate about nature, cycling, field work and traveling which I fill every free moment. I love vegan cuisine, now I am getting experience of a nutritionist to help people in the future. Every day I surround myself with books and music. Working with children is great challenge for me, giving me joy and satisfaction. As a biologist, I try to teach the youngest foundations of nature and respect for the world around us.

Natalia Pawłowska
Park group teacher

I am a veterinary doctor by profession. After studying for several years I have traveled the world (Turkey, Portugal, South Africa, Norway) and worked in the profession. Recently I have been interested in the topics of home births, hypnosis during child birth, attachment parenting, and the concept of forest kindergartens is particularly close to my heart.

I love nature and contact with children. And the combination of both is the most natural thing for me that I can imagine. I would like to spread love and respect for nature and other people among the youngest. In my spare time I partiipate in women circles. I belong to a small herd consisting of my husband and my dog Malcolm.

Park group assistant

I graduated from the University of Wrocław at the Institute of Journalism, I also studied at the music school in the jazz singing class. I’m currently a music therapy student. I’ve been gaining my experience working with children as a playground animator. I'm fascinated by the complexity of the relation between sound and human, and how music affects human development.

I love to play instruments, sing and dance in the morning. I like to spend my free time in nature - riding a bike or walking in the woods.

Younger group assistant

I received a degree in Cultural Studies. For two years I have been working as an educator in the museum of contemporary art and back then I have fallen in love with children under five for whom I had been conducting workshops. Currently I'm deepening my knowledge of alternative education, including forest kindergartens (which idea sounds marvellous to me). I have two funny cats, I practice yoga regularly, cook vegan for my family and try to meditate as often as possible.
