Meet the Team

Radhika, Principal

My motto is: “If I know I can, then I must”. With knowledge of one’s own ability comes responsibility. 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. Experience of excitement in a child who has acquired a new skill or has discovered something new, is what i consider my motivation.

I believe that we learn as much from children as we teach them. To ensure a holistic development of 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.

LORETA, Peda-cook
I am a trained pedagogical assistant from Italy and I am also Rooftop’s chef  – or simply the peda-cook. I have trained under a master who specialises in cooking for children. With years of experience in the kitchen and hygiene knowledge, I am sure to take good care of your children’s nutritional needs. The right nutrition is a prerequisite for a healthy body, and no matter how small you are, you will experience the best service every single day in the canteen. I receive daily feedback from children and staff around the food so I can make the food the kids like.

I am delighted  to  take the children on adventures in the magical world of food , constantly stimulating their sensory experience, with my food education.

DARSHIKA, Montessori educator
I am a trained Montessori educator (Diploma in AMI) and also have an education in child psychology. For the last 7 years I have been on a wonderful journey with children. I like to do art, craft and creative activities with children. I believe that a creative activity can be used as an effective tool for the holistic development of a child, as it opens the doors to imagination, allows for the development of motor and cognitive skills and strengthens the ability to concentrate.

I also enjoy field-trips, especially in nature, with children. I encourage children to be inspired by nature in their creativity.

KASPER, Assistant Educator
I love my work with children, and do what I can to ensure they have a fantastic experience every day in the institution. I have a daily goal, which is to ensure that each child has a smile on its lips, every day.  I believe, a happy day is fundamental for learning, growth and development of children.

All my activities with and around children is designed  with fun, play and experiential learning  in focus.  I am also the Mr. Practical of Rooftop. If there is something to be fixed,  made or a repaired, I am happy to take my tool kit out. Here too, the children get to experience and learn with me.

AIMI,  Assistant Educator
I am educated in the social field and have  a Bachelor and a Masters in Social Service, from Bejing university. I have over 6 years of experience working with children. I love to be on the floor among the children or, as one says, “be at the height of children” , occupied by planned or spontaneous activities.

I am empathetic and very attentive to the thoughts and needs of a child. I am good at making learning a fun and good experience. I meet every child at the level where they are, and my focus is to strengthen their independence and self-confidence. Besides, I have a great interest in nature, which I like to share and inspire the children with.

EMERALD, Assistant educator
I am a trained healthcare professional and have several years of experience in care. I have also worked as with children in a kindergarten. I am lively, energetic and full of laughter. “At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities”, said a wise man once. It is is my aim to influence children and adults alike, so they can experience and explore these possibilities.

I am good at working with cognitive development of nursery children and giving each child individual attention and support.  I believe that the parents, my colleagues and especially the children should have a pleasant experience in Rooftop.

Charish, Kitchen Assistant
I have been hired as the kitchen assistant in Rooftop, however i assist all my colleagues where ever, when ever and in whatever that is needed. A wise man once said, “You feel alive to the degree that you feel you can help others”. I love to help anyone that needs my help.

I can be called the all-rounder of Rooftop. You will find me peeling potatoes, watering the plants, or just helping a baby who needs a finger to hold and walk. If you wish for assistance and can’t see me in this large kindergarten, just follow my loud laughter and you will find me.  Incidentally I have also worked as an au-pair for 3 years.

Nicole, Pedagogue

I am a pedagog with focus on sensory and development, body and health.

I have two years of experience as a pedagogue. A large part of children’s learning and development happens through the body and I would therefore focus on organising the daily routine of children with plenty of opportunities for physical romp and frolic. My goal is that children can experience and understand their body and its enormous abilities. I believe that an appreciative and acknowledging approach towards children is the best condition for building a good and trusting relationship. I am an advocate for a day filled with tender care, companionship, lots of laugh, hugs, and time for each child.
