I'm Serlene the playgroup leader. My background is teaching and I have taught in schools in The United Kingdom, Germany and The Netherlands.
My educational studies have included preschool development and teaching and entertaining preschool children
I, like our playgroup, have a multicultural as well as international background, born in Barbados I moved to the U.K. at the age of 14. My husband is English, my older son and daughter were born in Germany and my younger son and daughter (twins) were born in England.
To add to the background my son in law is Dutch and my daughter in law Lebanese.
In addition to teaching I have a passion for dressmaking, baking, creating mouth watering dishes and reading.
I have over 35 years of experience in this area of teaching and education.
I´m Marta, a restless and curious Spanish girl, who recently moved to the Netherlands. My curiosity took me to different countries, especially around Europe, where I was able to experience and get enriched from different cultures and perspectives. After, and during my studies in education, I had several experiences with different age groups and in different contexts, but the preschool period grabbed my focus and attention the most over the last few years. My passion for education drives me to keep learning and improving. Alternative pedagogies that respect children´s personal growth and development have been my special interest and are implemented in the playgroup daily practices.
When not working or studying I always enjoy a good and meaningful movie, read a good book or cook delicious meals, even better if it’s with good friends.

I have a background in teaching, with qualifications in child development, counseling children and adolescents, teaching assistant and child psychology.
In addition to my teaching and prior to teaching in Daisy-chain I taught painting and drawing to children in The Hague.
I am an artist and previously worked in an art gallery undertaking commissions for portraits and paintings. I wrote a children's book which was published.
When home I enjoy cooking and indulging in arts and crafts, that is of course when my two daughters allow me to do so.
