Welcome! I am passionate about excellence in early childhood education. I do a mainly Reggio inspired child-led/ teacher-facilitated/ play-based intensive curriculum. Aspects of Montessori and other programs are sprinkled throughout as well.
The Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood education views young children as individuals who are curious about their world and have the powerful potential to learn from all that surrounds them. Educational, psychological, and sociological influences are important factors to consider in understanding children and working to stimulate learning in appropriate ways. Reggio teachers employ strategies such as exposing children to a wide variety of educational opportunities that encourage self-expression, communication, logical thinking, and problem-solving.
I am currently completing my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and college courses in Educational Psychology, along with my already completed 120-hour TEFL and CPR for children and infants’ certificates. My mother and mentor (a true Proverbs 31 woman) has more than 30 years in the Educational industry. I always have her expertise to tap into as well as she is manageing all operations of Heaven's Pearls.
During my studies (2016-2017) I decided to complete a full cultural and language exchange year in Germany as an Au pair. It was a truly multicultural enlightenment and enriching experience. One that impacted my outlook on education and has given me a new motivation to look into the potential of furthering my own knowledge around education.
Although I have completed an Australian Accredited Diploma in Tourism (2012), I always had a passion for working with children and teaching them brings fulfilment to my life, thus the reason I decided to focus my career solely on the development of children.
Over the past 5 years, I have accepted varies opportunities to work with children in preschool and primary schools both in Germany and South Africa. I had the chance to develop and teach children between the ages of 3 months – 9 years of age. I provided effective classroom management, supervision, creative lesson plans and detailed student evaluations.
My most recent teaching experience was at Jellybabies Educational Daycare in Paardevlei - Somerset West, where I assisted with upskilling of teachers and assistants. Not only have I had the privilege to gain valuable experience, they made me part of a wonderful network of teachers.
If I had to describe myself in five adjectives, I would say that I am patient, attentive, flexible, cordial, and sympathetic. I believe that I can make a difference one child at a time! I love seeing their faces light up when they're excited about something! My biggest passion is seeing the rapid growth of infants in their first year, the milestones they reach are of the utmost importance as it is the first foundation for later development.
I welcome you to my very own Exclusive Baby Care Facility. Heaven’s Pearls, because each one precious and unique in their own way.
Your baby’s brain is built over time: It starts during pregnancy, and continues through to early adulthood. And like a building, it needs a strong foundation.
The brain is made up of several different areas that control everything we do - from hearing and walking to problem-solving and how we feel. Each area has millions of brain cells, or neurons. These neurons communicate with each other by passing chemical messages over tiny spaces called synapses. As the messages are repeated over and over, more links are made and “neural pathways” are formed. Think of these pathways as the brain’s “wiring.” In the first years of life, these connections develop at an extremely fast pace.
So how does this development happen? That’s where caregivers and parents come in. You can help your baby’s brain develop in healthy ways. It doesn’t take special toys or equipment, and it’s easier than you might think!
We offer a happy, nurturing environment.
A place where your child can be safe and where they are given the utmost love and care. Our space is fully equipped to meet all your babies needs and provide them with opportunities to explore in a safe, secure and clean environment.
Our space is uniquely designed and therefore each child is given lots of attention and constant supervision.
