About us

We are delighted to introduce you to Monte Carlo Munchkins Club (MCM Club), a brand new children’s culture club for the most formative years in your child’s early life.

According to extensive research in early child development, human beings are never more open, sensitive or receptive to the cues coming from the environment from birth to age eight. Therefore we propose activities such as:

  • music with Kindermusik,
  • dance (Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Zumba),
  • gym and yoga,
  • arts & crafts,
  • cooking lessons

to enable child’s development, independence and self confidence. For the older children we developed cultural activities such as:

  • painting workshops -learning about famous artists and their techniques,
  • fashion recycling,
  • photography,
  • judo & self defense,
  • kids Yoga, creative gym and pilates

And for those who love to party and have fun we organise themed Disco and birthday parties.

Inspired by the growing phenomenon of private children clubs in London and New York, we have created Monte Carlo Munchkins Club, a haven for both young children and parents, in the heart of Monte Carlo. A peaceful, enchanting, safe place, that fosters children’s self-confidence, independence and stimulates their imagination.

So, while your munchkins are socializing with other children, playing or participating in our pre planned activities, you are free to enjoy breakfast, lunch or tea with friends in our beautiful lounge, which serves tasty, freshly-sourced, organic food and juices.

No matter what, our extensive spectrum of developmentally appropriate fun activities, inspired by the very best of Monte Carlo’s rich heritage and culture, ranging from Arts & Crafts, Storytelling, Cooking, Pretend Play, Nature, Science, Yoga, and Music, Dance. Together with our outstanding materials, which include beautifully crafted toys, games and more, your munchkins are guaranteed to find something inspiring and exciting to do at any given time of the day.

This week activities

During these first years, children experience huge thinking, learning, social, and emotional changes that will help them explore their new world, and make sense of it. The wonderful fact about young children is that we do not have to teach them to be curious. They are curious by nature and interested in the world. Our job is to channel and encourage that curiosity through age-appropriate activities. Our 1 to 3 year old’s program has been designed to help children build self-confidence and body awareness through exciting movement games and activities engaging balance and strength that will develop their muscle control, agility and coordination.
Their desire for independence and knowledge of their environment along with the development of their verbal, social and fine motor skills are expanded through practical life and sensory activities, explorative and manipulative activities such as block building, beading, puzzles, matching & shape-sorting games as well as imaginative art projects. Pretend play, music & singing, storytelling and reading further build children’s literacy base and provide our little ones with plenty of opportunities to express their emotions and to delve into the world around us.

As children grow into early childhood, their world begins to open up with amazing speed. They are becoming more independent by the minute and will want to explore and know about the things around them more than ever. Our 3 to 6 year old’s program is tailored to accommodate these needs with exciting age-appropriate activities and materials as children develop confidence in learning. Our instructors encourage interactive literacy and thematic learning experiences that further strengthen social, intellectual and physical skills through Arts & Crafts, Nature & Science, Drama, Music & Dance, Art Therapy, Yoga, Cooking activities and more.

Have you done any painting lately? All these colours! What will you draw? This week activities

Middle childhood brings many changes in a child’s life. Physical, social, and mental skills develop quickly at this time. Events such as going to school bring children of this age into regular contact with the larger world and they start to form bonds and friendships. Our 6 to 8 year old’s program provides a broad spectrum of stimulating and challenging activities to further enhance children’s confidence, self-reliance, self-image, independence, interactive and social skills as well as their need for expression, creative freedom and exploration in all areas of life.

Donata Davidoff

Donata is the founder of the Monte Carlo Munchkins Club. She studied at London’s famous Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and subsequently opened and ran a successful fashion label in the UK and in New York for 8 years. However, following her passion for art, she decided to move to New York City, where she studied at Christie’s and then worked at a New York based gallery specializing in Impressionist paintings. Even though Donata has always been deeply involved in the world of art and design, the idea to merge art and education through the creation of a ‘Learn-Through-Art & Play’ venture only occurred to her when her son Oscar was born. This ‘little epiphany’ combined with family circumstances brought Donata to Monte Carlo and enabled her to dream-up, develop and realize the MCM Club.

Séverine Sanguszko

Séverine is co-founder and co-manager of the Monte Carlo Munchkins Club. She received her law degree from the University of Paris V Malakoff and completed her Masters in French and Italian law from the University Paris X Nanterre. She received a Master of Public Finance and Taxation with a specialty in taxation from the University Paris II Assas. She first worked in a prestigious investment bank in Paris and Geneva, and then managed a family business from Monaco.
Given her experience and that she herself has a young daughter she decided along with Donata to invest in the Monte Carlo Munchkins Club.

Petra Bungert

Petra, who grew up in Germany, is an accomplished professional with more than 30 years of experience in the field of contemporary art, graphic design, and publishing as well as production design, project management, communications and mediation. After living in New York, where she ran her own gallery and participated in the re-launch of MoMA/PS1, Petra moved to Brussels, where she co-founded and directed CCNOA, an international non-profit art centre, until 2010. She recently relocated to Nice where she continued her curatorial practice, but also decided that it was about time to share her experience with the next generation. Inspired by Maria Montessori, Bruno Munari and Gottfried Honegger, Petra developed numerous creative art, design & culinary projects for kids and teens. Her truly contemporary concepts not only seek to stimulate our Munchkins’ imagination and nurture their inquisitive minds via meaningful, enriching multi-sensory activities, but more so wish to lay the foundation for a ‘creative way of seeing’ – the complete freedom to explore, to see for themselves, to educate their eyes, develop their senses, to ‘look awry’, and – in the process – create their very own views and imagery of the world they live in. After all: Seeing is a creative act. He who only looks doesn’t see. Seeing means reflecting, perceiving, and being aware. He who only looks doesn’t know. Seeing involves binding in all the senses … creating sense. (Gottfried Honegger, Aphorismen, 2006).

Ioanna Gioldasi-Zarpanely

Following the Royal Academy of Dance standards at the Sally Adam-Krousou School, Ioanna, who was born in Athens, begun to study Classical Ballet at age 3.

After graduating with honours, Ioanna performed with the Greek National Ballet (1997-1999), followed by a tour of Europe with the contemporary dance company Choreftes (1997-1999). During that time, she also taught Classical Ballet and Jazz Dance to children ages 4 -16. In 2000, Ionna joined the Sofia Katsouli Dance School in Athens, where she taught Contemporary Dance and Classical Ballet to 1st year students and also prepared prospective students for their entry exams. In 2002, Ionna was offered the position of Principal Dancer on a cruise ship, followed a year later by the position as Production Manager & Choreographer for various cruise ships. This experience opened Ionna’s eyes for additional dance styles such as the Russian Kalinka, Rock ‘n Roll, Commercial Jazz, Jive and more. Since 2006, she has been the principal teacher for Classical Ballet at Danse Plus. Ionna is excited to introduce our Munchkins to her extensive and delightful repertoire of shakes, moves & grooves.
