The whole team looks forward to helping your child to thoroughly enjoy their time at McTot’s.
By taking over the McTot’s English speaking Play Club in October 2009 I would like to offer other children and their parents the same happy and positive experiences that my sons had by attending our playgroup.
It was important to me that my sons could grow and develop in a fun and structured way whilst also providing a few hours of breathing space for myself. I wanted a place where children enjoyed attending and parents felt secure knowing that they are in capable and kind hands.
As I have been with McTot’s from almost the very beginning, I know and understand both the playgroup history and the Anglo-Saxon culture.
I hope that my experience as both a mum and a teacher, along with my multicultural background, will help me to make a positive contribution to McTot’s.
I am originally from the south east of England, but I am half Scottish. I moved to Zürich a few years ago to join my husband who had just accepted a permanent job here.
I moved from England in 2004 with my husband and two children to live in Zurich. My children attend the local public schools and we all feel very settled here.
My father is Swiss, my mother from Hong Kong and I recently just moved from Hong Kong to Switzerland to begin my studies at the University of Zurich.
I am originally from Pennsylvania in the US. I moved to Switzerland almost 16 years ago and live in Zürich with my two boys, Lucas 16, Oliver 13, and a wise old cat named Socrates.
My name is Cass and I will be helping out at McTots from time to time.
I’m Australian and have been living here in Switzerland for the past years. We have also lived in UK and Scotland for 8 years where both our children were born (Edinburgh).
Josh and Coco also attended McTots when they were younger but are both now in the local school in Thalwil.
My name is Kim Parina Thakuri. I am half Swiss and half Nepali. I lived with 200 kids of all different ages for about 17 years. I am currently living in Zurich at the moment for my further studies.
I am English and have lived in Switzerland for three different spells with a break for 2 years in Melbourne and then another 2 years in Sydney. I have three children. My eldest daughter is studying at the University of Sydney and my 13 year old twins attend Zurich International School. McTots is a special place to me as my twins previously ‘graduated’ from here before attending Swiss school for their early years. Before leaving England I worked as a Learning Support Assistant and very much enjoy contributing to the development of children.
