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.

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.

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.

Ola Korolik
Older group's assistant

I’m a master of clinical psychology. Working with kids is something that gives me a lot of joy and satisfaction. I’ve been gaining my experience while working with children in Poland and abroad: I have given individual classes, run workshops and educational trainings.

For the past three years I’ve spent a few months each year at a summer camp in the USA where I had an opportunity to work with children and teenagers as a counsellor and instructor, staying only outdoors- in the woods, in the mountains and at the lake. I understood how important for development and gaining experience is contact with nature and how much we can learn from it.

I’m passionate about plant-based cooking- in my free time I experiment, explore new tastes and I’m still astonished by plants’ possibilities.

Natalia Pawłowska
Park group assistant

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.
