Our Team

The most important contribution to a child's development is our team. At Crossing Borders we have a fantastic team with remarkable personalities and an ambition to develop continuously. Our teachers aspire to be an asset to children by assisting them in their development and thus supporting parents, too. By providing children with the right environment within a safe Pedagogic setting, they can develop to their full potential.

We believe that guiding children in their development begins with ourselves. That is why we think it is important to dedicate a lot of time and attention to the development of our employees. Because in order to continue having a positive effect on your child’s development, we need to ensure we have strong self-knowledge and continue to develop ourselves. In the next years, we will increase our training programs significantly on diverse areas like pedagogical methodology, personal development, professional communication and much more!
