Teacher Amy is the best thing ever. Kind, patient, warm, nurturing…and fun! All the best ingredients for an excellent teacher. Play is the ultimate way to learn at this age and Amy manages to squeeze in so many valuable lessons while retaining all the fun. My little girl looks forward to every 1-on-1 session with her and talks about them long after. Amy goes to such trouble to get to know your child and in doing so, her sessions are not only tailored to your child’s age and abilities, but also personalised to their unique interests. The cherry on the top: her feedback after each session is amazing and it’s such a treat to hear about all the fun and learning they got up to!

Amy was such a blessing last year, she stepped in and tutored our colleague’s son during the covid pandemic at such a time of uncertainty in the little boy’s life. She not only covered the syllabus but gave of her time and energy to instill confidence in him, a passion for learning, and the belief that he can achieve and reach his full potential. I will never forget the day he proudly stood in front of us and presented his oral, this comes from a boy that just a few weeks ago was too shy to even have a conversation with us. He beamed and that smile is unforgettable and that smile is due to Amy. His marks at school showed a significant improvement especially in the areas of language and mathematics. Deep gratitude to Amy, thank you and we would highly recommend Teacher Amy! She is one of a kind!

 – Joy & Jeremy, Simphiwe (8 Years Old)

There are no words to adequately express my gratitude towards Teacher Amy. She has set the foundations for my little girls early childhood education  and provided her with a safe nurturing environment to develop, learn and play. She has such a loving and warm personality and the kids are drawn to her instantly. She knows how to handle them and help them regulate their big emotions. Amy understands their needs and connects with them on their level through effective and positive communication.

 – Mieke, Emily’s Mommy (3 Years Old)

Amy is the kindest and most committed teacher, with a deep and genuine love for the kids she teaches. She really sees each child and encourages their little personalities to emerge. The combination of her warmth, sense of fun, and gentle guidance creates the safest space and allows each child under her care to grow and flourish. My daughter absolutely adored her and she has been an extremely hard act to follow for future teachers. Teacher Amy is a true gem!

 – Jenna, Frankie’s Mommy (3 Years Old)

Our time with Teacher Amy was so cherished! Not only are the skills & development that she focuses on so invaluable and customized to each child’s age and abilities; but her love, patience, and disposition towards your child is something that is very rare to come by and so appreciated! Thank you Teacher Amy for an engaging & amazing play session!
