Georgia- Director and Teacher
Georgia was born in Milano, Italy and lived there as a child and throughout her school years. She studied art, dance and drama. In college Georgia graduated as a Graphic Designer while working as a tour operator for Italian tourism in Dominican Republic. When she arrived to Miami in 1990, she was the manager of two hotels on Ocean Drive and shortly after became a property manager of several buildings in Miami. She then had many successful years as a Real Estate Agent.
It was not until she became a mother that her true passion was born. She felt a strong need to return back to art and music, but with a twist. Her son was a true inspiration, seeing her boy and other little ones' natural and pure instinct to explore art and music. This was a clear message for her to go back and study more about art, music, play and discovery but, this time, from the infants' and toddlers' perspective. After several years of studying consulting books, parents and instructors, Georgia graduated from music programs for early childhood and decided to open SILLY MONKEYS PLAYHOUSE. Her passion was realized with a place for children and parents to bond, learn and communicate through art, music and play and for parents/caregivers to enjoy their children's first growing years. This is a comfortable environment for parents to spend quality time with their little ones in various unique ways. In addition, to also socialize with other parents and share this amazing and magical stage of the early development of there little 'Monkeys'.
in 2016, after numerous requests from past clients to list their properties, Georgia return to real estate to assist her old clients as well as her new ones.
But don’t worry; she has not stopped been SILLY and fully operates Silly Monkeys Playhouse.
Jose- Teacher Assistant
Jose was born and raised in Miami FL, Jose comes from a very musical family background that spans in four generations, being the first in his family to be accepted into a University (FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY) for music in piano and music education. He then received his B.M.E. in 2013. Jose has several piano compositions and is a musical director at his local church.
Jose joined the Silly Monkey team on March of 2015 with the intent of pursuing his career in music education. His contributions in music have had a major impact where he has seen how the children grasp the musical elements being taught (singing, dancing, rhythms, and even guitar playing!) He has a true passion working with children. His central focus is for the children to learn the musical elements that will enhance cognitive processes that will last a life time. His ultimate satisfaction out of Silly Monkeys Playhouse would be spending time with each child and uncovering their inner music ability resulting in lots of smiles and laughter. Outside of Silly Monkeys Playhouse, Jose dedicates time to his local church, enjoys family time, is very outgoing, a sports fanatic, loves eating pizza, enjoys recreational activities, and loves classical music.
