At Polytot, we are passionate about your Child Care and your child’s individual growth, safety, and happiness. We aim to inspire every child through nurturing guidance that cultivates individual expression and self-esteem.
My name is Marc and am so excited and proud to be a part of Polytot. As the On-site owner and educator, I have a Doctor’s Honors in Philosophy and French, an MBA in Business Planning, and child education degree with the North American Montessori Center for Education. I speak fluent English, Dutch, French, Spanish and German. With my passion for education and learning,
I am committed to providing the highest quality preschool experience for the children in the Santa Rosa Valley, Thousand Oaks and Moorpark communities.
My wife Barbara and I are parents of three amazing children, 2 boys – Sebastian and Jasper – and a girl Cecilia. Barbara is native from California and I am Dutch. At home we all speak French, Dutch and English in a wonderful mix. French when our au pair from France is with us, Dutch with me and English in any other situation.
We have personally experienced the importance of a safe and nurturing, multi cultural and multi lingual early childhood. During our relatively short lives so far we have lived in various countries ranging from South Africa to the Netherlands, France and Spain and 15 years living in bi-lingual Belgium before moving to Santa Rosa Valley.
As a family, we enjoy spending time together going on hikes, gardening, playing board games, biking, swimming and going to the beach. We believe family is the basis for why we chose Polytot and are happy to be able to provide Polytot’s outstanding program to the children in Santa Rosa Valley, Camarillo, Thousand Oaks and Moorpark as well as the wider Ventura County community.
We look forward to welcoming you and your children to the Polytot Family.
