There is nothing in the intellect
which was not first in some way in the senses.

I am a graduate in Social Counselling Pedagogy (MA studies) from the Pedagogical University in Kraków and in Preschool and Early School Pedagogy (post-graduate studies) from the Bogdan Jański Academy in Kraków. I have also completed a practical course in Montessori education organised by the Ziarnko Maku Foundation, which promotes the Montessori Method. I have a CAE level certificate in English and a First Aid training certificate. My earliest experience of working with children dates back to my teenage years when I worked as a cub scouts instructor. My professional experience includes school internships and working as a children community centre teacher, a nanny and a preschool teacher. I have a five year old daughter Zuzia. My work with children is guided by Maria Montessori’s words: Help me do it myself, as I believe that self-reliance and independence provide the basis for building a sense of self and provide a resource for a child’s future success.

Our preschool is overseen by the Malopolska Regional Educational Authority and the City of Krakow. This guarantees that our activities and curriculum are fully compliant with the requirements of Polish educational law.

Our staff

Our preschool offers high quality education based on acclaimed Montessori teaching aids and materials. Our preschool stands out thanks to our staff – highly qualified professionals who are passionate about their job and have long-standing experience with Montessori education. Our headmistress and teachers have university degrees in preschool and early childhood education. They are also graduates of certified Montessori pedagogical courses.


We provide children with specialist care and offer professional support to children with developmental problems thanks to cooperation with experienced and recognised therapists.

We are certain that the children attending our preschool, will not only enjoy their learning experience, but will be also well-prepared to continue their education in primary school. This is the result of an educational process that takes place in child-friendly surroundings - in an atmosphere of understanding, acceptance and respect for the needs of each and every child. These are the distinctive features of the preschool environment we offer.
