Monica BRANCO is the manager of Sunflower Montessori, Brussels. Monica is an experienced psychologist, who worked for several years in Portugal with children and teenagers who have development and behavioural problems. In search of new horizons she joined the Sunflower team in Luxembourg in 2010. Initially Monica worked with special needs children at Sunflower.
In November 2012 Monica was selected to head up the new Sunflower “Galileo” crèche. She embraced the opportunity to create from the very start the right environment, select the team and most of all create the best crèche possible for the children. Monica found the experience very rewarding and enjoyed seeing the crèche grow and flourish.
Recently she moved to Brussels with her husband, and she felt that Brussels would also benefit from a place “where care and education go hand in hand”
Combining management and teaching is the perfect situation for her, as she is able to create learning experiences for the children, for the staff and for herself. “I couldn’t feel fulfilled without being able to share privileged moments with the children, to observe and guide their pursuit of knowledge and their growing path”
