Tanya Milbourne

Nursery Manager and Busy Bees Teacher, Cache Level III Diploma in Early Years Education and Care

TanyaMilbourne Hello, Guten Tag, Ciao, Hoi and welcome to Inspire and the Busy Bees Class. I am Miss Tanya the Busy Bees Class Teacher. I am originally from London and am of Scottish, Dutch, German and Italian descent. I have worked as an Early Years Practitioner, Coordinator and Nursery Manager within the Education sector over the past 28 years with children with Special Educational Needs and Mainstream students in The United Kingdom, The Netherlands, America, Germany and The United Arab Emirates. Dubai has been home to my family since 1995. I am a mum to four children all brought up in the UAE and Early Years is my passion for the past 28 years.

I have been part of the Inspire Team since 2012. Along with being the Busy Bees Lead Teacher during Peak Academic hours I am the manager here at Inspire. I am very passionate and committed to working with children. It is a real joy and very rewarding to watch their growth and development on a daily basis.

I am an Arts Therapist and Early Years Practitioner CACHE3 Early Years with the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs. My specialty and love in education lies with bringing a creative emergent curriculum via a holistic child centered, play based and initiated learning approach into practice within the class room setting whilst making the classroom experience a warm, welcome, child friendly environment.

I would describe my teaching style as being outgoing, fun, adventurous, and expressively creative. I enjoy allowing children to develop using individual and collaborative exploration and trial and error methods. This allows children to become risk takers and challenging themselves to achieve goals, within the security of a safe, homily, nurturing and supportive environment.

Warm regards,

I have been working in the education field for more than 6 years now and love every moment of it. If I am not in the classroom you will find me in the swimming pool or gym coaching kids, as I am a qualified Monkeynastics, and super-skills coach and instructor – my love for Children goes beyond the classroom.

Lesson planning, Class Dojo will all stay in place and I will be following Inspires One Tribe Inspired Creative Curriculum.

Yani Robinson

Teacher, Playful Pandas Teacher, Cache Level III Diploma in Early Years Education and Care

YaniRobinson Hello and welcome to the Pandas Class.

My name is Yani Robinson and I’m a mother of one. We moved to Dubai in 2008. Moving to the Middle East was a little hard for our daughter who was young at the time. Now she is 21 years old and we are happy to call Dubai our home. I have been working with Inspire since opening in 2010.

Working at Inspire, the teaching staff and of course the children give me a great deal of satisfaction and sense of achievement. My career background is in nursing. I hold a BA Nursing Degree. I have worked in the medical profession for a number of years in the United Kingdom. I worked for 4 years as a residence nurse in a nursing home in the UK and 5 years in a GP practice. During this time, my job and experience included dealing with patient and working alongside doctors and other healthcare professionals in the general practice. Over the past eight years I have worked as a Nursery Nurse and Lead Teacher within Early Years settings in the UAE.

For me, developing a child’s education is the most important job on earth and to see them happy everyday always puts a smile on my face, I believe that children need positive stimulation and it is also my responsibility to provide a safe, secure and happy environment for our little ones.

See you soon,
