After completing her diploma in Landscape Design, Sarah moved to the UK and began her 20-year journey in education. Sarah's early career centred around young children, where she worked in various junior schools across London, including coaching sports and tutoring. Whilst working at Thomas’ Kindergarten in Battersea, Sarah enrolled with the London Institute of Education, where she studied a BA in Education, majoring in Foundation Phase. After starting a family and relocating to South Africa, Sarah taught at a local school in Salt Rock and then moved to Village Kidz, where she has progressed from teacher to Vice-Principal to Principal. Sarah believes that children learn best through play, especially where there is a variety of learning environments which are fun and stimulating and specifically designed to meet the developmental needs of each child through exploration, creativity and independence. Sarah works continually with the teaching staff to design various environments that provoke and encourage an understanding of new concepts and interaction amongst children, in ways that foster a love of learning indoors and outdoors.
Tammy developed her love for working with young children while taking a Gap year in the UK. She completed her B.Ed. degree at Stellenbosch University and shortly after graduating, moved to teach in Dubai. She spent 6-years working at an International school, before running her own child development business for a further 9-years. During this time, Tammy was able to follow her passion to further her knowledge and understanding of Early Childhood Development through completing her Kinesiology Studies, with a specific interest in Educational Kinesiology and Early & Primitive Reflex integration. Through her work as a Kinesiologist, she has helped many children minimise barriers to learning, while facilitating overall balance for the family unit as a whole. Tammy has a very natural philosophy towards learning and development where she believes strongly in learning through play, where natural movement and sensory exploration is key.
