Meet Ana! Ana Peckham-Cooper is our Founder & Managing Director of the school, which means this busy bee deals with everything from blueprints and application forms to school supplies and our vegetable garden.
Ana used to be a professional nanny to a high profile family in London, and has always championed many extremely important causes:
1. Outdoor play (even in gloomy London!)
2. Food that makes us feel happy and healthy
3. Celebrating our differences and individuality (because that’s what makes us special)
4. Freedom to explore and discover
So when Ana had two children of her own, she decided to build a school that would echo her beliefs… because what else do you do when you have two children under three, right?
Here’s how it all happened (and this is the short version!):
We renovated the old building to make it ultra child-friendly; knocked down walls so children could run around; went shopping for eco-friendly, child-safe furniture; built an outdoor playground; got dirty in the vegetable garden; found musical instruments from all over the region; planned a nutrition-packed children’s menu, and put together a team of super dedicated teachers.
The end result? Ana’s dream school that we now call our home. Come see for yourself!
