Did I like the afternoon sleep?
No, I didn’t but since it was mandatory, I didn’t have any choice. I remember I used to pretend to sleep until I felt the teacher hide a candy under my pillow as a reward.

Before coming to Bambíno, Kateřina graduated from a secondary pedagogical school with focus on preschool pedagogy and got much experience in various kindergartens in Moravia (where she comes from). She joined to Bambíno in the beginning in 2009 and we are happy (little Bambínos as well) she has stayd with us!

What was I afraid of when I was little?
The bogeyman under my bed. I don’t know what it looked like but I knew that if my arm was sticking out from under my duvet, I would lose it!

Martina Košťálová

teacher

What did I want to be as a child?
My dream was to become a trash collector. Riding on the step at the back of the lorry and pushing the button to lift the huge container and empty it and then return it.

After graduation, she worked full time as a babysitter and took care of two toddlers. After the children grew, she joined Bambino, where she is now taking care of the little ones.

Kristýna Šťastná

teacher

Imaginary friend from childhood?
I had an imaginary friend – a polar bear. His name was Lucky and we had our own world. We liked travelling to the North Pole and enjoyed a lot of adventures together.

Kristýna is coming from a small town called Ždár nad Sázavou. She went to secondary technical school. During her studies she had a big interest in sport and dance activities for children. For already 5 years she´s participating in summer camps as a camp leader. She also had a chance to work in a summer school in England. She likes to play florbal as weel as dancing and discovering new things.

Robert Martin

teacher

What was my favourite childhood game? "Hide the salami". We would steal salami from my mom then hide it. She would get so mad and we would just laugh. One time we couldn´t find it and 3 months later we found it and it smelled so bad. That´s why I´m a vegetarian today.

Robert grew up in a very small town in the USA called Chicago. He graduated with a degree in Communication from Azusa Pacific University in California where he surfed a lot and studied a little. He believes the secret to staying young is finding an age you enjoy and then acting like it. He’s confident there’s no better place to be a kid than at Bambino except maybe Disney World. Robert enjoys eating deep dish pizza and riding his bike but not at the same time.

What fairytale being did I want to be?
Since I was a little girl I admired Tinker Bell from Peter Pan. She was so beautiful and she had the magic powder that could make you fly.
