    Tetiana Vlasenko - speech therapy

    Dear parents, my name is Tatiana and the last 7 years of my life I have devoted to speech therapy and working with children. I have obtained Master's degree in the Dragomanova National University. In the P'tit CREF I teach classes aimed at comprehensive development of the child, speech improvement and sound pronunciation, mastering of motor skills. We learn fun rhymes, tongue twisters, chistogovorki, trudnogovorki for automation and differentiation of sound’s pronunciation in children’s speech.

    A large number and variety of rhymed humorous material will not allow your children to be bored in the classroom and turn "problematic" and "naughty" sounds into "right" and "obedient."

    Morits Alona - Art studio, Crafts, Music

    My name is Alona. I have been interested in art since childhood. That is why I try to find a creative approach to every job I do.
    16 years of my life I have devoted to music, concerts and performances. In 2014 I graduated from Dnipropetrovsk Music Academy and got a qualification of a flute teacher, company artist and orchestra conductor. Also, I’ve finished floristics and art school. Moreover, I have 3 years of experience working with children.
    I think every child has a talent that must be developed with the help of creativity. I belive creativity is more skill than inborn talent, and it is a skill we can help our kids develop.Because it is a key to success in nearly everything we do, creativity is a key component of health and happiness.
