Happy 10th Birthday Stepping Stones!

DSC_0139There are only a handful of companies which became an essential part of the expat community in Zug; Stepping Stones, School for Early Childhood Education is one of them. Regardless the age of your children, you can’t live in Zug without regularly hearing about it in different context, and most interestingly, every opinion I heard was always very good. The 10th anniversary is an important landmark in the life of every company, and it is the perfect excuse for me to look around the premises and to have a nice conversation with Linda van Veelen, one of the three founders.

School Matters! 2013- Andy is in!

Andy Habermacher is in for this School Matters! 2013…this is the news of the day, it really made the sun shine brighter. I received this very heartfelt and detailed mail regarding our cooperation:

(C)Andaleeb Lilley Photography 2009“Hi there

Happy to do  it – so yes count me in!


Why am I so excited about his participation? I’m sure he doesn’t need to be introduced, everybody in and around Zug knows that he is a Brain Leader, great coach and excellent public speaker.

At this point I must reveal another speech of the event…it is really a shame, I like to keep my secrets, but I would like to show you how Andy fits the program.

I already told about the speech on Bilingualism, and here you are; we’ll have one on Technology in Early Years.

Both influence the development of the brain; Andy is going to tell you and show you how.

Were you as afraid as I was to let kids use computer, Internet, games..? I really fought as long as I could. Now the first generation successfully survived and grew up, we have the first experiences. Was I right preventing them to use technology, or did I make a mistake?

Were you asking yourself how many languages those poor kids should learn at the same time? Will they be confused? Will they mix them up? Will they have a large vocabulary in every language? How do several languages mix with dyslexia, or other issues?

Come along on the 22nd of Feb and have your questions answered.
