I am the eldest of three children and have the most amazing Mom, loving Hubby and three beautiful children of my own; Faheemah, Ilham and Daanyaal. I love Reading, swimming and most of all………travelling. I am a perfectionist by nature.
I qualified as a Montessori Directress in 1998. My first teaching post was at Harmony Primary School in Lenasia, where I facilitated a community-based pre-school. I taught at this pre-school for a few years and then served as principal. During this time spent at a traditional public school I began to fully appreciate the benefits of the Montessori method of Education. I realised that there was a huge difference between traditional teaching and the Montessori approach.
I also noticed a dire need for a Montessori pre-school in our community. I opened Kindergarten Kidz in January 2001 with the vision that “childhood should be a journey, not a race!” and haven’t looked back since.
My other qualifications include an ECD Level 5 Diploma, NAET Practitioner, Braingym® Practitioner And Educational Kinesiologist. With my expertise and vision for Early Childhood Education I trust that I can offer your child a solid, positive and happy foundation here at Kindergarten Kidz.
I qualified in early childhood development two years ago at the college of Modern Montessori and have been teaching at Kindergarten Kidz since.
I am the youngest of two elder brothers. I have two nieces and a nephew whom I adore. My love for children and teaching little ones has always been my passion and my aspiration is to help them reach their full potential. I aim to leave my footprint in the heart of every child I teach.
Home schooling at Kindergarten Kidz offers individual attention to learners in a classroom environment. This way the learner experiences the best of both worlds.
Hi, I am Maseeha. I initially entered the teaching field by volunteering to aid children with special needs. When I realized that I was born to be a teacher I studied studied towards a level 4 early childhood development diploma with Professional Childcare college. I then went on to complete a Bachelors Degree of Education through Unisa and am currently enrolled to complete a Level 5 Montessori diploma at the Montessori Early Learning Foundation. I am working at the school for the past 10 years. I have used my time here to work in each classroom with learners from the ages of 3-7 years of age.
I come from a large family so I’m no stranger to lots of fun, silliness and noise …qualities I believe help me to be a better teacher. I am married to a loving husband and have the most mischievous adorable son whose 2 years old. I am a very artistically inclined person. I love food and culture, animals and learning about the world and share these aspects in my class. I have a love for learning and believe it’s never to late to learn something new. I make a conscious effort to create a love for learning in my learners.
I am also a lover of reading and books and what I love most about my class is that I get to teach my kiddies the super power of reading. I try my best to get to know the kiddies in my care as best as possible and enjoy spending my time with them. I consider my job to be a privilege and honour. I love to make my kids laugh and enjoy school make new experiences possible for them. I know that teaching was what I meant to do and wouldn’t change it.
My name is Yavani. I have a Diploma in Montessori 3-6 Years and my previous work experience includes being an assistant teacher at Park Primaty School.
I am a patient and hard working. I am always willing to learn new things from other educators. I always strive to do my best and I am not a person who gives up without trying.
Why Montessori? I chose Montessori teaching because of the hands on practical work as it is a more interesting way of learning and develops the child in more detail and a easier form of learning making sure all criteria that each child has to reach as a milestone.
I am a qualified BED foundation phase educator. I completed my degree in 2022 at UNISA. I have been an Educator at Kinergarten Kidz Homeschool since 2020.
I was born and raised in Lenasia. I grew up in a big family with two brothers and two sisters. I attended Al-Aqsa Primary School and matriculated at Nirvana Secondary School. After matriculating, I married my best friend, started studying and worked towards my degree to begin my dream job.
Why foundation phase? Becoming a teacher has always been my ultimate goal, as my love for little kids runs deep within. I have a passion for teaching and enjoy being in a learning environment. As a teacher I strive towards making a difference each and every day, making learning fun and molding future generations to the best of their ability.
My hobbies include outdoor adventures and nature as well as cooking.
I have qualified at Wonderkids Montessori Training Institute. My experience was actually very pleasant, I have learnt quite a lot over the 7 years of teaching and wish to always be there for my kids, academically and emotionally.
I come from a very quiet yet respected family. I have two sisters and one brother. I am convinced teaching runs in my blood. My dad and both sisters are teachers and we absolutely love what we do.
Why Montessori? I believe each child develops at their own pace and should not be compared to others. Hence I chose Montessori, because it allows that and so much more.
I enjoy hiking and the outdoors but I also enjoy my own space and a good movie with great food.
The atmosphere is a warm and caring one.
A quote I live by “A good teacher is like a candle. It consumes itself to light the way for others”.
I am the youngest of four children and I have the most wonderful and loving parents. During my free time I enjoy baking, meeting childhood friends, travelling, learning new things and most importantly I love spending time with my loving and caring family.
KINDERGARTEN KIDZ will ensure that your little one is flowered with lots of love and happiness.
