I am the head of Eureka Birutė

I graduated from the Kaunas University of Technology with a degree in business administration. Later, I gained a Master of Economics qualification degree. While still expecting my first child’s birth, I became interested in early childhood education and the psychological development of a child in early childhood, and together with education management professionals, I established the first early childhood education school in Lithuania, the Eureka Kaunas branch.
I am convinced that early childhood is a phenomenal age, valuable in itself. At this stage in life, it is still difficult for a child to gain attention, so it is important for him to learn by moving, discovering, experiencing, playing, and thus learning more and more new things.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Pre-school and Pre-primary Education and for the last six years, I worked as a teacher at a private school in Vilnius. Both during my work and during Erasmus + projects I accumulated knowledge about integrated education, creativity education, reading strategies, outdoor pedagogy, and democratic education.
I believe that respect in communication with children is my priority. By creating relationship-based respect children feel valued, heard, and understood, thus the wellbeing of children as well as teachers is the aim of our school.

I am the head of Kaunas Eureka branch Karolina

I have always been interested in planning and organizing activities. In 2015, I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in finance and realized that the field relevant to me is much broader, so in 2017 I obtained a master’s degree in marketing. I worked according to my acquired specialties, but pedagogy was always nearby. My mother is a teacher, so the worries and joys of school life have always been an integral part of our family. I have tasted the bread of a non-formal education teacher, as a result I have completed pedagogical-psychological knowledge courses.

My career was all the time connected somehow with education field and I enjoy it because the experience gained from interacting with little students, their parents and teachers is simply invaluable. I am a mother myself, so I fully understand the importance of trust in each other and the quality of activities in the educational institution, because parents trust us with their most precious possessions.

I am deputy manager for organizational affairs and teacher Laura.

As I count on the fifth year of working with early-age children, I’m glad to realize that every day can be joyful. Fellowship with little explorers makes the day infinitely interesting, meaningful and unique. I pay special attention to the emotional development of the little ones – I am constantly looking for activities that would encourage children to express themselves, talk and express their emotions.

In my free time I like to paint and I can enjoy an impressive collection of my works of art, maybe that is why the exceptional feature of my education is the ability to organize education creatively, freely, constantly looking for and discovering new, unusual ways of education. I believe that the role of mobility in the learning process is also important in the education of children, therefore I organize mobile educational activities and contextual trips.

I am deputy manager for informal education and teacher Silvia.

While I was studying social sciences and psychopedagogy at the University of Santiago de Compostela in Spain, I realized the importance of early education for healthy personality development. The science of studying the psychology of upbringing, teaching, and learning has led me to pursue a master’s degree in medical anthropology and international health. After graduating with a master’s degree in Tarragona, I became convinced that mental health is crucial for personal development.

I have experience working with families and children with special needs. In my professional practice, I dedicate special attention to emotional intelligence, socialization, and cognition of the relationship with the environment. The first years of human life are the cornerstones of the perception of personality, self-confidence, connection with the world. I believe that anything is possible if the mind and bodywork are in harmony.

I have received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the Lithuanian University of Educational Sciences, and later a master’s degree from Vilnius University. During my studies, I realized that my vocation was to work with children, so as soon as I finished my studies, I started my professional career working as a therapist and educating children with special needs. I also work as a medical psychologist at the Child Development Center, where I perform children’s psychological diagnostics, consult children and parents.

I believe that little ones are able to learn new things much faster than adults. Therefore, it is a great pleasure for me to help them overcome difficulties. In the child support process, I attach great importance to cooperation with parents and teachers.

I am a special pedagogue – speech therapist Greta

I graduated from Šiauliai University with special pedagogy (specialization – speech therapy). During my undergraduate studies, I deepened my knowledge while studying at the Bicocca University in Milan, Italy. I am also currently seeking to obtain a master’s degree at Kaunas University of Technology in the field of education.
As far as I can remember, I have always been interested in language, its emergence, learning different languages, artificial languages. I myself speak four languages, so it is no wonder that I have chosen the profession of speech therapist. When working with children, it is very important for me to give the child the highest possible level of communication in order to ensure successful adaptation in modern society, using verbal and / or non-verbal communication.

I am Rugilė
I am studying occupational therapy at Kaunas College. I am in my third year. Friendships with children began from an early age. I took the initiative to participate in projects, voluntary organizations that aimed to help children, provide greater opportunities to get to know the environment around us, explore it, understand their emotions and, most importantly, communicate. I have experience with children with developmental disabilities, using ABA therapy and I was international volunteer in “People to People International”, whose mission was to contribute to children’s joy, i.e. to organize trips, activities with wards in children’s homes. It’s nice to feel children’s smiles or warm hugs as they contribute to their well-being. In my eyes, what if not us, all the curious, will let ourselves understand how colorful this world is!

I am a teacher Laura.

I studied at the Lithuanian University of Education and obtained a bachelor’s degree in biology. I further deepen my knowledge at the Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, in the master’s studies of human-animal interaction. I am particularly interested in the benefits of canine therapy, so I am able to interest children in this topic and answer their questions. I believe that a responsible approach to the environment around us needs to be implemented from an early age. After all, children are our little helpers and big creators of the future.

I am committed that educators must help each student reach the top of the pyramid of needs.

Working with children aged 3-6, I realized how big and important the role of an educator is for a child. I see children as my little friends and I am happy to develop empathetic, independent, confident little citizens. Being with children, I understand that every day is full of new discoveries, lessons, challenges, and adventures.

I am responsible, friendly, and honest. I am interested in art, and in my free time, I like to watercolor and read books. I try to pass on my knowledge of the world’s artists, various art techniques to children and encourage them not to be afraid to experiment and try themselves elsewhere.

During my studies, I started working with children as a junior teacher in non-formal education. Later, I worked in a day social care institution, where I trained people with intellectual disabilities – I taught English, entertaining and folk dances.

Working in a pre-school institution with 1.5 – 5 year old children I realized that each child’s year is exceptional and special. I look at work responsibly and creatively and strive to share my knowledge and build a better future.
I believe that children, like adults, face many challenges in knowing themselves and the environment every year, and the teacher’s mission is to help them overcome these challenges.

During my studies with young children, I did an internship in educational institutions and saw that each child is a different and unique little personality, so it is very important to create an environment in the classroom where the child is not afraid to reveal, feel safe and become a unique member of the community and be self-independent.

While still in school, I knew I liked languages. After graduating from school, I chose the path of an interpreter and started studying at Vilnius University. That’s where I graduated from the bachelor’s study program in audiovisual translation. I soon realized that I wanted to deepen my knowledge even more and got a master’s degree. It’s no secret that I love children, I grew up with many younger relatives. I believe that I can pass on my language skills to little curious people and teach them to speak not only the correct Lithuanian language, but also English. And fourteen years of experience in singing in a choir will help me get children interested in learning languages in a fun, interesting and cheerful way.

I am a third-year student of Vilnius College, studying Public Relations. This is a specialty where the main and most important thing is communication. The communication I enjoy the most, especially with children. By communicating, we can not only communicate but also we have the opportunity to express our feelings and life adventures, we can get to know and teach others. My most important goal when working with children is to teach little ones to express their feelings, to boldly present their opinions, and never be afraid to communicate.

I think children are the best source of emotions and by working with them, we help each other learn the tricks of life.

I am music teacher Gintarė.

I started playing music when I was four – first I attended Yamaha Music School, then I studied at Balis Dvarionas Music School for ten years, where I graduated in piano. Later, I obtained a master’s degree in music education at the Lithuanian University of Educational Sciences. I have been working as a pre-school music teacher for seven years, and I also teach private lessons for piano and drums to children.

In my pedagogical activity, I apply various educational strategies – especially, I appreciate the musical education systems of Dalkroz, Gordon, and Orf. When conducting music classes, I always try to develop not only the musical abilities of children but also to open the beauty of the world of music to them, to pay attention to self-confidence, communication, cooperation, creativity, competence development, etc. My goal is to create an environment where each child feels safe, meaningful, and loved, and because each child is unique, we always need to take look into his or her individual needs and abilities.

In my free time, I like to travel, spend time with friends, ride a bike. Of course, music is the greatest passion of my life. I spend most of my free time playing drums in my music group, with which we have already released two albums and we are successfully performing all over Europe.

curious. We, as adults, should learn this from children. That’s why I love to train children – I believe that I grow with them every day. I
believe that a person’s inner well-being determines his results, so I want to educate children and feel the power of that moment. After all, this is the beauty of life.
