Robbie Zein is the co-founder of the Zein International Childcare Group – a labour of love that she entered into together with her husband Jan van der Meijden back in 2007.  

As a third culture kid herself she understands the advantages, and challenges, that an international start to life can bring. Her experience with families and children of all ages from diverse cultures, combined with her own international background, has given her a unique perspective.  In this talk she will share her insights as to how to help children and parents deal successfully with the a fast changing foreign environment.

Zein International Childcare’s mission & philosophy is based on providing an internationally oriented nurturing learning environment which seeks to understand cross-cultural experiences and their impact on children. Their program is not just to provide good care and attention to children, but also to give advice and feedback to parents.


The Education Programme and all seminars and workshops are free to Fair visitors. You can sign up for this talk here and you can register for Free Fair tickets below
