My interest lies particularly in relief work, whether for one day or for a longer period of time, in an ECD centre or a school, private or governmental.

Work History


Blue Balloon Preschool & Daycare Centre

From May 2004

Plumstead (
I resigned from teaching in April 2004 and in May I started my own ECD Centre: "Blue Balloon Preschool & Daycare Centre". I began with 4 children and to date have over 70 children (in 3 age groups) enrolled at my school and have a staff complement of 11.
I am currently in the fortunate position where I can do selective teaching within my school as well as fill temporary teaching positions outside of my school, and spend the balance of my time managing my school. The selective teaching fulfills my passion for working directly with children and the temporary positions keep me abreast of the advances made in education.
On a personal level, I am a very hard-working, highly organized, practical and efficient person. I am friendly and am always happy to help anyone wherever I can, whether it is on a personal, professional or practical level, and I am a great believer in "sharing" in Education.
I can take advice and constructive criticism well, and am very much a team player which enables me to slip into another teachers' shoes easily.
Besides my HDE, I have 13+ years of Foundation Phase teaching experience and 10+ years of ECD experience.
