Claudia

Position: 

Nursery Manager | Qualified Language Teacher

About Me:

I’m Claudia, from Naples in Italy, a place where the sun always shines. I moved to England 6 years ago in pursuit of a career in education.

I graduated in Foreign Languages at the University “L’Orientale” of Naples. I am a CELTA (Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults) qualified teacher and Cambridge Speaking Examiner for young learners, I taught English to Italian children for 6 years. I loved studying towards my Level 5 qualification as I learned leadership is not being in charge, it is to look after the people in your charge

I really trust in our children’s capabilities, and in the principle of positive reinforcement. All of us can learn more effectively when encouraged and supported with a smile. I’m a very kinaesthetic person, full of energy, always ready to run around and sing along with anyone who dares to follow me. My secret? Just some fairy dust!
