Maru Aguirre & Bati McComas

I come from Ecuador. My education includes a bachelor degree of Child Psychology and Psychorehabilitation, and a postgraduate degree as M.D. in University Teaching and Educational Administration. I have been teaching for over twenty years. I have had the opportunity to work in different areas as a teacher and coordinator in preschool. I have found that teaching little children is marvellous and magical.
Adventure, exploration, discovery, and creativity are experiences that I always try to provide to my students; as well as the inspiration to learn with love in a wonderful place.
Daniella Garcia Lugo
Although I was born in Canada I spent most of my life in Venezuela. I earned a Bachelor of Education with a major in Early Childhood Education from the University of Los Andes. I have been a preschool teacher for almost 15 years. My professional experience includes the position of head teacher for nursery school children, preschool coordinator, and educational advisor for children living in refuge. I really enjoy working with children, so I feel privileged accompanying them on their educational journey and at the same time learning constantly from those little great masters.
