About us


The Alma Collective was created by Madalena in 2016. Born in Brussels to a Greek father and German mother, she has experienced first hand what it means to grow up with a multitude of cultures and languages. This has shaped her life.

Being a mother herself, she is excited to offer her children and others the same opportunities of multilingualism she had. Alma originally started as a program for a Greek-speaking playgroup in North London and is now expanding to digital.

Madalena's background is in photography and visual storytelling. You can learn more about her by visiting her website or connect with her on instagram or pinterest.


The Alma Collective is you.

You are part of us. Child or adult, we welcome you to the fold and hope to hear about your adventures, soon.
