Meet the Staff
All of our group leaders are native speakers of their language, DBS checked, and highly experienced in dealing with children! Children can switch from uninterested in a language to entirely fascinated by meeting and playing with their group leader; join us and see the magic!
Daria di Pietrantoni
Loved by kids, parents and group leaders alike, Daria spent many years teaching languages to young children in South Wales with knowledge, enthusiasm and joy before taking on the Manager role at The Saturday Circle.
As a Canadian in Wales, Mackenzie looked around to find a workable solution for her own children to learn French and found that there was little provision for global languages. At the same time, research repeatedly proves young children absorb languages at the fastest rate in a natural, immersive environment. The rest is history!
Native Speakers of their Language
Amazingly energetic and driven, our native speaking group leaders expertly engage children to learn to love and appreciate the language, delivering them a true education in the culture, customs and language and a global view that lasts a lifetime!
