Andreea Marian

Hand in Hand Certified Instructor

Hand in Hand Parenting Instructor, founder of the Romanian-Finnish Kindergarten in Medias (Romania), education workshops and conferences speaker and organizer, mother of two girls, passionate and active in supporting and educating children and adults from my community and beyond.

As mother of two young children, I had a difficult time adjusting to the responsibilities and challenges I had to face everyday. I started questioning everything I knew about life and myself. My biggest need and desire was to raise my kids as decent, intelligent, and capable persons but I felt like I was failing in a big way. That was when I came across Hand in Hand Parenting. The tools and explanations made sense and gave me answer and solutions. After the first days of Staylistening, with my daughter I knew this was what we needed. After a year of practice in my family, I decided to take the certification course which deepened my knowledge and skills. Having such good results in my own family, I started spreading the message to other parents from my community by organising talks and workshops for parents and teachers.

As I tried some kindergartens for my daughters and I was left with unsatisfying results I decided to open a kindergarten where teachers would use Hand in Hand Parenting tools and knowledge combined with pedagogical practices inspired from the Finnish educational system. This is how the Romanian Finnish Kindergarten was founded and we are now looking for ways to expand the project at school level as our efforts resulted in a very close and active community of kids and parents satisfied with the system provided in our kindergarten.

“Andreea Marian –  Hand in Hand Parenting Instructor, fondatoarea Gradinitei Romano-Finlandeze Medias, organizator si speaker la conferinte si seminarii pe teme educationale, mama a 2 fete de 3 si 4 ani, pasionata si implicata in formarea si educarea copiilor si a adultilor din comunitatea din care fac parte si nu numai

In rolul de mama a doi copii de varste foarte mici mi-a fost forte greu sa ma adaptez la responsabilitatile si provocarile zilnice, astfel ca am inceput sa pun sub semnul indoielii tot ce stiam despre propria mea persoana si despre viata. Cea mai mare nevoie si dorinta a mea era sa fiu capabila sa imi educ copiii astfel incat sa devina adulti capabili, inteligenti si cu bun simt dar eram coplesita de sentimentul ca esuez in mod lamentabil. Atunci am luat prima data contact cu Hand in Hand Parenting. Instrumentele si explicatiile oferite de aceasta organizatie le-am gasit pline de sens si mi-au oferit raspunsuri la intrebarile care ma macinau. Dupa un an in care am practicat aceste metode in familia mea am decis sa ma inscriu la cursul de certificare ca instructor Hand in Hand Parenting, in urma caruia mi-am imbogatit considerabil cunostintele si abilitatile. Avand rezultate foarte bune in cadrul familiei mele am inceput sa duc mesajul mai departe in comunitatea de parinti din orasul meu si din alte parti prin seminarii si conferinte pentru parinti si cadre didactice.

Dupa ce am incercat cateva gradinite care ne-au lasat un gust amar in ceea ce priveste abordarea fata de educatia copiilor am decis sa deschid un centru educational privat in care sa imbinam metodele Hand in Hand Parenting cu practicile pedagogice inspirate din sistemul educational din Finlanda, astfel s-a nascut Gradinita Romano-Finlandeza Medias. Am reusit sa creem o comunitate stransa si activa de parinti si copii multumiti de sistemul educational oferit,  iar in momentul de fata cautam solutii pentru a extinde proiectul la nivel de scoala.
