Beata Wróbel

I have been working as a teacher for over 10 years. It is my passion. I am a preschool and English teacher. In teaching I work to combine my practice with the knowledge, I have gained during many studies, courses, workshops and conferences. I am a big fan of positive discipline approach.
Working with children is an amazing adventure as well as a great challenge. Human development since the earliest age greatly fascinates me, and the chance to watch the changes in children when they grow encourages me even more to be around them.
Children teach me being spontaneous, open, careful. They never fail to see the beauty of the world. I highly recommend for everyone to see the world through the eyes of a child, even for a moment. Trust me, it’s more beautiful that you could ever imagine.

Konrad Syga

I am the co-owner and creator of Sunny Buddies. The sea microclimate idea came when my son was born and we found out that he has skin allergies. Visits to the sea or in the health resorts were very helpful to him. I realized that the best idea when living in a big, polluted city is to create a preschool which combines the highest quality teaching ideas with the Adriatic microclimate. This is how the first such place in the world (Sunny Buddies) was created. A preschool which is unique and one of a kind.
