Meet the Team

 RADHIKA – Principal

My motto is: “If I know I can, then I must”.  I have the ability to make a difference in the day care area, therefore I assume that responsibility.

My journey started in the corporate sector, where I had the opportunity to manage projects and people. But the destination was to be here, in the children’s universe. With Masters in science and in marketing, I bring an inquisitive mind, organized thinking and many years of management experience to Rooftop. Furthermore, I also graduated in pedagogy and  have 7 years of experience in one of the best institutions in Denmark. This gives me a strong foundation for managing my staff and this institution.

I am a hands-on manager and pedagogy is first and foremost in my heart. One can therefore often find me among the children, along with my staff. I like to have close contact with parents, understand their views, and help them in the challenging task  that parenting sometimes can be.

My mission: “Create the best environment for holistic development of children.”

LISA – Montessori Educator

I have been working as a Montessori educator for several years and have experience in combining learning and play in the children’s daily lives.  I like to follow and contribute to their daily learning, development and education. I believe that we learn as much from children as we teach them. To ensure a holistic development of the child,  parents and educators must work as a team. Therefore, I attach great importance to understanding parents and to answering their concerns, subjects and questions in the best possible way.

ANDREAS – Pedagogue

I perceive myself as a caring, patient, reflective and inclusive person. I like to be active in the company of the children. As an educator, I place great emphasis on listening and creating space for the child’s expression. I am simple, lucid and unambiguous with children and create a recognizable setting for children where they can share their experiences. On a daily basis, I express myself visually on canvases with spray and brush paint and like to play football.

SEVIN – Pedagogue

I am a pedagogue and I have worked with speech/hearing impaired children before my pedagogue education. During my education, I did my internship in an institution for children with challenges. As an educator, my focus is making the kids feel cared for based on an appreciative approach that meets each child at eye level. In addition, I emphasize a good parental collaboration with lots of communication, as the interaction between us and parents is an important foundation for the children.

JULIE – Pedagogue

I’m a pedagogue with a great focus on language development. I create a learning environment where not only the spoken language is used, but also body language, facial expressions and picture language comes in to play.  Here children will experience my appreciative approach my many smiles and hugs. I emphasise being present, get to know the child’s interests, see the child’s opportunities, and create a safe everyday life that supports a good development.

MADS – Pedagogue

I graduated as a pedagogue in January 2022. Before I started my education, I worked at the daycare Lillekilde for 1,5 years and moreover I have 10 years of experience as a youth trainer in badminton. I enjoy playing actively with the children and seeing how they themselves learn the games and develop them with their wonderful imagination. It is amazing to see them develop all of their competencies through playing and seeing them grow together. 

SALMA – Pedagogue

I am a pedagogue with several years of experience in Early Childhood Education. I define myself as a patient, empathic and sweet person who does his job with passion. I like to observe children to understand their needs, to listen their point of view, feelings, accept their emotions and respecting their individuality. I guide children to learn through play by creating activities that stimulate their senses.

MEDINE – Pedagogue

I got my degree in pedagogical studies in 2016 and have 2 years of experience in a nursery. In addition, I have three children who have given me the most experience in pedagogy. I define myself as a very smiling and happy person, which also rubs off on the children. In my view, the child must be guided for many hours and be given a hand when necessary. A hand so that it can develop itself. Because the most important thing is to help the child learn their options so that they can develop themselves – put on their own clothes, resolve conflicts, and become part of communities. I organize good settings where children can play and learn together. For me, parental cooperation means a lot, where you build on security and openness.

AIMI – Team Coordinator

I am an experienced educator with a Bachelor’s and a Masters’s in Social Service, from Bejing University. I prefer to be on the floor with the children – “at the height of children”, involved in planned and spontaneous activities. I am empathetic and very attentive to the thoughts and needs of every child and meet them where they are,. I am good at making learning a fun experience. Besides, I have a great interest in nature, which I like to share and inspire children with.

AMALIE – Dance Educator

I have a bachelor’s degree in jazz dance with pedagogy from Norway. I have experience as a dancer and dance teacher with a focus on children who needed alternative means of learning. What I bring to the rooftop team is someone who loves to be active with the kids, but also loves to sit, look and analyze the children’s behavior. I think it is important to meet the children with mutual respect. Being able to give the children a safe space where they can fail without being afraid and learn from it is important to me.

OLENA – Steiner Pedagogue

I have for the most part worked as support for a child with special needs. I am interested in sports and being active. I am also musical – I play the flute. I recognize myself most in children who are introverted and shy because I myself am shy. I open up fully when I am with the children, as I am most comfortable in their company. This I use in my work where I support the children, especially the shy and introverted ones, to open up in a safe environment.

ALINA – Soon to be Pedagogue

With a master’s degree in English, I have worked with children for several years. I have been working in kindergarten since 2016 and love working with and being around toddlers. A good day is a day with room for creativity, coziness, and care. I believe that children need space to shape and unfold their interests and needs. There should be a place to learn language, physical and social skills, and at the same time space for care, hugs, and recognition.

PANY – Educated Childcare Assistant

As a PAU graduate, I have 15 years of experience with both nursery and kindergarten children. As a person, I have good energy, am proactive, approachable, smiling and outgoing. Both parents and colleagues would describe me as caring, listening, playful and present. In my work, I also use a positive and constructive form of communication. Furthermore, I am good at observing and working with different solution models with the children. Rain gear and rubber boots are permanent contents in my rucksack, as it is very important for me to be able to be out with the children in all kinds of weather :).

UMA – Montessori Educator

I am a Montessori educated pedagogue with 4 years of experience. I enjoy being surrounded by children and have a natural passion for cheering up and helping small children reach their potential. I am convinced that the development of values like curiosity, discipline, independence, and social skills in young people can create responsible adults. I contribute to Rooftop with my structured and organized way of working with children.

JACOB – Educated Childcare Assistant

I have studied 2 years on the pædagogical education program and also have 4.5 years of experience from various institutions. Including, nursery, kindergarten and special school for the developmentally disabled. As a person, I am structured and appreciative in my approach to the children and patient, which has given me a good foundation for good relationships. I focus on the individual child and their skills and always try to meet them from a child’s perspective exactly where they are. This, I believe, provides the best development opportunities within well-being, learning and education. In addition, I have a great interest in nature, which I try to integrate into educational activities in everyday life as much as possible. My big motivation is thus to give the children tools and skills for life and to see, for example through play, that they develop positively.

Through 3 years of experience, I have built up competencies within the child perspective and child development. I am particularly concerned with being there in the moment with the child and supporting their needs. In addition, I am very present with the children and want to give them a safe and calm environment in which they can develop. It is important to me that I, as an educational staff, show great empathy and support the child in their development and well-being.

PEGGY – Childcare Assistant

Since I was a little girl I knew that working with children was what I wanted to do and I’ve followed that dream ever since. I started as a babysitter at the age of 12 and continued until I was 17 when I started working as an educator in nurseries and daycares. I see myself as a very patient, friendly, always smiling and loving person. I also know and believe that the communication and working together with parents is a very important part in any child’s upbringing.

I enjoy reading books with children and working with their artistic, creative and aesthetic faculties. I am methodical and structured which I believe helps me in working with children. My goal is to learn from the children and share my knowledge with them in their journey towards being self-sufficient, confident and competent individuals.


ROBERT – Cook/Head Chef

I am Rooftop’s cook. I have over 20 years of experience as a chef in hotels. It is an interesting challenge, from servicing grown-ups to satisfying tiny people, -a challenge I look forward to every day. My experience of servicing a variety of requests at the same time, as a chef in a hotel, is of great advantage to address the special needs that many children may have, such as allergies, vegetarianism, religious reason, etc. I hope to bring some colors, aroma, and flavor to Rooftop with my ‘French-Italian connection’

FAUSTO – Kitchen Assistant

I am the kitchen assistant at Rooftop, but I help all my colleagues anytime and with anything when a helping hand is needed. I am also responsible for general hygiene.
