Back in her home country of Romania, Adina became interested in the wide world while studying International Economic Relations and working for a multinational company. Her desire to travel took her across the world, finally settling in London where she took the time to study and practice being the best early years practitioner she could be. Adina has over 15 years experience in working with children, from nanny, nursery practitioner and deputy manager to taking the role of Practice Manager in a children centre set up in Malawi, Africa and has recently qualified as EYFS Teacher.
Adina believes that childhood is a magical time for children and our role as adults is to provide the appropriate environment, resources and support to allow children to fulfil their full potential. She takes a holistic approach child development and uses the Forest School ethos and principles in her everyday practice in order to motivate, engage and inspire children through positive learning experiences.
Adina is fascinated by all the different cultures around the world, loves travelling and meeting people from all walks of life. Her free time is usually occupied by her other hobbies – photography, sewing and cooking for friends.
