Meet the Team

Karen Curry

Owner and Lead Teacher

I am a UK qualified teacher with over 20 years of experience teaching Early Years and Primary aged children in the UK and Hong Kong. In 2014 I created Shooting Stars Preschool with my own children in mind.  I wanted to provide somewhere educational and fun where children could play and learn in English.  Shooting Stars started in our house in Finstersee with just 3 children.  We now have more than 90 children registered in our preschool and afternoon classes and have moved to a more spacious setting in Unterägeri.


I love watching the children become confident explorers, discovering new things, learning new skills and making new friends.  I am passionate about making learning a positive and enjoyable experience for children of any age.


Shooting Stars Preschool is growing and evolving but remains a small, caring preschool and English learning centre.  Come and visit us!

I am a British, qualified primary and early years teacher and have been working with children from pre-school to 6th Grade since 2005.  I also have a Masters degree in Early Years Education from the University of Sussex.  I have lived in Switzerland since 2010 and gained extensive experience teaching native and non-native speakers in a bilingual, international school in Zug.  I very much enjoy working with the pre-school children in the mornings and the older children in the English clubs and Wednesday writing workshops in the afternoons.


Teaching Assistant

I am a qualified teaching assistant from the UK and have lived in Switzerland with my family since 2015.  Previously I lived in Germany and worked as an assistant librarian in the children's library.  I have a passion for books and enjoy sharing my love of story-telling with the children at Shooting Stars.   I have worked with the preschool children at Shooting Stars since 2018 and also assist with some of the English clubs in the afternoons.

I am a qualified teacher with a graduate degree in Early Childhood Education.  I taught preschool and first grade in the U.S. and have been teaching the preschool children at Shooting Stars for 2 years.  This age is a wonderful time of discovery and awe that provides the foundations for math, reading and general excitement for school.  I love fostering this through natural play and am thrilled to be able to do so here in Unterägeri.
