Meet The team
Little Crowns was founded by Delvene, a professional actor with over 14 years of experience.
She received her full time training acting course at Stella Adler Studio in NYC.
Whilst in NYC, she was chosen to work on behalf of the Student outreach team that held regular workshops in schools around New York. This experience led her to start making puppets and perform traditional folk stories in local children’s bookshops around New York City. This is when she started to have strong interest in Puppetry.
In addition to being an actor, Delvene is a Full time Nanny and has worked with children from birth to primary. Her motto is to always enhance the child experience through play!
As for today, Delvene encourages children to express their own creativity while nurturing appreciation of puppetry. She has a lot of experience and the ability to have fun with a group of young ones by drawing their attention and offering encouragements to those that are particularly shy.
She has great understanding of young ones and their respective needs and this is the reason why she incorporates a wide range of activities that babies loves such as dances, stories, puppets, movements and music

Whilst in NYC she worked in schools in the Bronx teaching Acting and Improvisation to children from ages 5-17 years old.
