Bibi Grigoras – Acting Third in charge and Gefen Room Leader (Toddler Room)

I am Bibi, the room leader in Gefen, the toddler group at Shofar. I started my journey in childcare as a children’s entertainer, where through games and fun I realised that I wanted to turn this hobby into a career. I worked my way through, from being an entertainer, to an au pair, nanny and now I am a fully qualified Level 3 Early Years Educator.

I pride myself in being a very energetic teacher; fun and bubbly, with a great imagination whilst being down to earth and having a great sense of responsibility. I love working with children and caring for them alongside teaching, and discovering facts about the world around us with them.

Over my time at Shofar (I have been here since we opened), I have attended various courses and trainings in areas such as Letters and Sounds, Moving Matters and Talk Boost, which I implement in our everyday activities to enhance/support our children’s knowledge and development.

I love reading stories (and making them up!), getting messy, playing games, singing, dancing and having a giggle with the children, but I mostly enjoy the happy faces that come through the door every morning, eager to learn something new and enjoy endless fun.
