Our team

“The happiest man in the world is the one who makes the most people happy”

For the well-being of the children, the different actors in the school’s day-to-day operations (staff, parents, external parties) need to get along and work in harmony. The focus is on mutual respect and team spirit.

The Founder and Director

Vincent Rosa

After graduating from HEC (Hautes Etudes Commerciales) in 2002, I started my career in Paris as a financial auditor at Ernst & Young, before holding various positions in several large international groups (Louis Dreyfus, Société Générale, Standard Chartered Bank) in Paris, then in Singapore since 2006.

In 2012, I left the wonderful world of large groups with no regrets and embarked on an entrepreneurial project with La Petite Ecole, alongside my wife Viviane Salin.

What was initially a family project (a bilingual school for our two children, now aged 12 and 10) has turned into an entrepreneurial adventure. We have grown and learnt to surround ourselves with experts to carry out our projects.

After three years of success, we opened La Petite Crèche in order to offer a more comprehensive service to families in Singapore. Two years later, we took up the double challenge of launching La Petite Ecole in Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City concurrently.

Since 2019, I have assumed the management of the group La Petite Ecole, in close collaboration with our School Principals, and more particularly with Maria Lamrani Alaoui, Pedagogical Director of the group.

Head of Playgroup

Valériane Morello

Playgroup supervisor and French-speaking teacher

Originally from the North of France, I work as a Professeur des écoles (school teacher). I have taught classes of different levels for six years, and I have also worked as a volunteer for associations supporting sick or handicapped children, before following my life partner to Singapore. Settled in this little corner of Asia for seven years, we live an experience rich in discoveries and encounters.

After teaching in a language school and giving private tuitions, I joined the team at La Petite Crèche in 2015 and participated in setting it up. I am delighted to welcome your little ones in a caring and green environment, where they’ll discover the world, play and evolve at their own pace.

I have a passion for the arts & crafts, so I undertook training to use arts as a means to stimulate children’s creativity and development while helping them acquire new skills.

I am the mother of a seven year old. Outside of work, I practice geocaching, hiking, travelling and cooking; I also enjoy observing fauna.

The Teachers

Elodie Gaulin

French-speaking Early Childhood Teacher
Originally from Lyon, I work as a childcare assistant. From a very young age, I knew I wanted to work with children, so I first animated social-cultural events during school holidays and I also looked after children in school during free time, before and after class. I then opted for studies to become a school teacher. However, during my studies and after doing replacements in a nursery, I realized that early childhood attracted me the most. I decided to complete a professional training in childcare assistance. I received my diploma in 2010, and I then worked in different institutions in the city of Lyon, looking after children aged 3 months to 4 years old. I followed my husband to Singapore in 2017 and I am very pleased I was able to integrate La Petite Crèche’s team shortly after our arrival. Thanks to this job, I had the opportunity to meet families from various cultural backgrounds, each with remarkable life experiences. My studies and experiences inspire me to contribute to the children’s psychomotor and emotional development through play while respecting their individual pace and well-being. My profession aside, I am passionate about travels, cinema, music and dance (salsa and West Coast swing).

OH SIN HWA Karesia

Early Childhood English-Speaking Teacher
It is nice to meet you, my name is Karesia. I am born and raised here in sunny Singapore and I have been an Early Childhood English Teacher for four years. Being a firm believer that every child is different and capable in their own way, I devote my career to raising a generation of empathetic and independent thinkers. The world is our classroom and incidental learning experiences help to pique children's curiosity about the world we live in. So I love immersing myself in nature, the largest classroom of all! I look forward to working closely with you to help our little ones reach their milestones in a happy manner. May our time together be filled with exciting and enriching experiences for our little ones!

Support Team

Fanny Piovarcsy

Communication, Marketing & Human Resources Manager
After working as a Personal Assistant in the Financial Sector in London, I decided that a creative career would be more fulfilling. I enjoy adding strings to my bow, and all the challenges that come with it! I studied Graphic Design in Prague, then worked as a freelance designer in Singapore, the perfect occasion to get some insight into the local culture. I joined La Petite Ecole’s team 3 years ago, at a very exciting time of expansion. La Petite Ecole offered me the opportunity to work in an ever-changing environment, and give meaningful purpose to my multiple experiences, as working in Education is highly rewarding. Having two wonderful children myself, I enjoy working in a benevolent and passionate team driven by the wellbeing of the children. Today, I am in charge of Communication and Marketing across SEA, as well as part of HR.
