Being a mother of two young boys, I understand the constraints of finding a babysitter or asking a friend/family member to watch your children while you are off doing something for yourself.
I don't want you to stress about this at the Polemidia Conversation Club! I offer an affordable crèche service at my house during the meetings. Now you can free your mind to concentrate on the Conversation Club, yet have peace of mind that you are not far from your young ones.
Depending on the number and age of the children, there will always be one or more caretakers
available. They will entertain and care for the children during the meetings.
The fee is 5 EUR per meeting/child, 3 EUR per sibling.
Please contact me at 99115214 or firstname.lastname@example.org
at least 2 days in advance to book your place.

Marina has a degree in Education from the University in Athens and a Masters in Education Management from Kings College London. She is a primary school teacher, working with children from 6 to 12 years in full class settings and small groups.
She also enjoys taking care of toddlers for two different families several times a week and is very involved with her nieces and nephews, helping anywhere from changing nappies, to babysitting and after school tutoring. She worked in two summer schools here in Cyprus, planning many creative activities for children of different ages, e.g. staging small puppet theatres, interactive storytelling and fun days out.
"Children can brighten the day with their simple and beautiful way of looking at the world. They are smart and can communicate in so many more ways than we adults. I like to surround myself with kids whenever and whereever I can!"
Egli is an elementary school teacher who is currently working as a child assistant for a five year old girl. She has also worked at a kindergarden with children up to three years old.
She graduated from Athens National University six years ago and authored the children's book called "Ο Ιάσονας και η ομάδα των πειρατων" ("Jason and the Pirates").
"I believe that we adults can learn so much from children. After all, the world is a better place when you see it through the eyes of a child".
Artemis has a degree in Psychology from the university in Athens. It is during this time that she realized her passion for working with children and she has been an educator and therapist ever since. She also has experience working with children with special needs, volunteering for organizations such as the Theotokos Foundation.
"I strongly believe one of the most important things in life is giving and sharing. Recently I’ve been inspired by the motivational speaker Nick Vujicic, who said:
When you can’t get a miracle, you can still be a miracle for someone else."
