We began our Antonina* Kindergarten in our house in Ilirska Bistrica, Slovenia in 2009.
We now have 48 children in three groups with six teachers. I serve as the director of the kindergarten.
We believe that we are called to a life of service as educators. We foster the development of children, helping them to reach their full potential and use their gifts to transform the world.
*Blessed M. Antonina Kratochwil SSND, is a Polish Martyr of World War II.
