We employ qualified and experienced childcare staff who are dedicated to providing high quality care and education to all children. We recruit staff based on their qualifications, skills, experience and attitude. Our class sizes are small, allowing our teachers to pay attention to the children’s needs.

judit forgács

kindergarten teacher assistant

My name is Judit Forgács and I am a mother of a wonderful 8 years old little girl. I come from Eger and besides my studies as an art therapist I also studied in Cambridge and New York.

I have been teaching English as a foreign Language for the past 14 years in differnet international kindergartens. I've been constantly inspired by early childhood education and working with children whose fantastic freshness I believe is rooted in the fact that they are 'living in the moment'. What makes early childhood education unique is that it starts with the child and not the subject matter. I am passionate about the power of play as it is the engine of learning in early childhood and as a vital force for young children's physical, social, and emotional development. What inspires me the most is the hum of energy when children are deeply absorbed in the flow of play. Every child deserves a chance to grow and learn in a play-based, experiental preschool and kindergarten as UTR. 

Play works.
