I was born in Alexandria, Egypt where i attended a Greek School, the Averofeio. With Greek parents, I was the fourth and and last generation in our family, of Greeks in Egypt.
For us Alexandrians, foreign languages were a way of life, evident from a very young age since english, arabic and french languages were all part of our education.
The dream of every Greek migrating abroad is his home country, so we visited Greece every year. We would spends the winters in Alexandria, and the summers here.
My family home is in Palaio Faliro, an area very familiar to all Alexandrians due to its proximity to the sea.
I then moved permanently to Athens for my studies. As an English Language graduate, i specialised in teaching english as a foreign language to preschool education.
Teaching English in well known schools in Palaio Faliro helped me attain a degree as a theatrical play animator. There Ι learned the importance of a positive attitude towards life, being an optimist myself.
As an educator, (english and theatrical play animator), with an experience of 25 years, I decided to create in Kifissia, the area where I reside with my family, a second preschool/kindergarten, following the success of my previous school in Palaio Faliro, Feggarostrata. It's a dream come true for me.
I welcome you, as a mother and an educator, to the preschool/kindergarten «Kids R Kids».

“Dear Ms. Pefani,
By this email, I would like to thank you from my heart and to tell you how lucky I feel meeting you and your team 6 years ago.
When my older daughter reached the age of 2, I needed a very good kinder garden for her, as she did not speak any Greek at that time. Everybody around me scared me that my child will have problems being bilingual; she will be confused, that she is too small for this and she will have a problem in the future expressing herself.
You were the one to tell me not to worry about anything. And you were absolutely right!!!!
In 3 months’ time, she started speaking Greek and not only that. In just one year, she was singing songs in English and she was talking to her teddy-bears in English full of joy and love.
After 4 years at your kinder school, she was completely ready to start Elementary school, with no problems at all. She had the best possible educational foundations, she knew how to express herself, she was polite, kind and helping others.
She was waking up every day, happy to be member of the "Feggarostrata family", as we are TILL NOW!!!
Her little sister joined you one year ago, and I am living the same dream story.
“Happy kid coming back home”
Thank you for everything!!!
