Childcare Practitioner

Arina Dreglea

Hello, I joined the Tots2Teen childcare team in 2016 and am excited to be a part of it.
I grew up in Latvia, graduated from University of Latvia as an English Language Teacher, worked with children aged 4-15. In 2008 I came to Ireland  to study MA in English Language Teaching in Limerick. The strong caring side of my personality and passion for children led me into the Early Education and Childcare.
I enjoy watching children accomplish tasks and seeing their proud looks on their faces, to teach them new things and provide them with new experiences. 
Outside of  work I enjoy cooking, reading and being outdoors with my  two children doing anything and everything.
