Maria Aarts now sits on the Storypark advisory team alongside other thought-leaders from around the world including Charles Pascal, Joce Nuttall, Sue Robb and Anne Meade. This group helps guide Storypark to ensure we develop features that encourage the best possible practices and outcomes for children, families and educators.
Maria Aarts is the founder of Marte Meo, and a world-renowned expert in her field. She works extensively across Australia, as well as in 45 other countries. Her experience in simplifying complex ideas and encouraging interactions that support every child’s unique strengths or ‘golden gifts’ have changed the lives of children and families, and enhanced the practices of educators.
“I had the good fortune of meeting Maria in Amsterdam and we immediately clicked” says Storypark’s CEO Peter Dixon. “We share very similar values and work towards a similar purpose in different ways. Maria is an expert in crafting simple but powerful ways of interacting with and supporting children. We’re really excited to have her as part of the wider Storypark family.”
Storypark’s purpose is to help every child fulfill their unique potential by connecting and empowering the community around them. We’re constantly researching, listening and improving what we do in partnership with leading practitioners, experts and organisations.
As well as welcoming Maria to our advisory team, we’re also proud to have formed a partnership with Marte Meo – stay tuned for some great new developments, including podcasts and interviews with Maria.
