About Me

Hi there,

My name is Marie, My setting is Marie’s learning centre. My passion is stimulating the artistic flair in children. I am a cheerful lady with diverse knowledge in the visual arts. I believe in allowing children to express their creativity with skillful guidance . My priority is basing my activities around the EYFS Learning and Development areas. We are interested in understanding the world by visiting farms, forest schooling, playground parks and the use of our own garden. We paint outdoors and indoors.
We have our own separate studio of painting, playing and learning.
I praise children to others when they have behaved as expected.
My expectations are realistic and flexible adjusted to the age, level of understanding, maturity and stage of development of the child.
We build self esteem, confidence, self-discipline and respect.
We are in a warm spacious and happy environment in the boarders of Crofton and locksbottom and ideally a walking distance to Orpington train station.

My Experience

Marie is great with children and brings out their creativity. My children 9 and 12 love attending her classes, and Marie is extremely vested in the children's growth and development. She gives lots of encouragement and praise which has boosted their confidence in developing their interest in art.

I have used Marie to engage my kids into art. My 12 year old has improved her technique a lot and has come to appreciate different artists. She now loves to doodle different things as well. My other kids, 8 and 7, are now much more keen when it comes to painting and creating treasures out of everyday rubbish. We have had full face mask, castles, rockets only to name just a few. Marie is very caring and invests into a child as a whole.
