Sunshine Crèche, South Africa
Hannie, a life-long resident of Pearston, has been involved at Sunshine Crèche since it opened 16 years ago when she started as a volunteer helping the teachers in the classroom. Hannie loved working with the students, and the experience helped her realize her passion and talent for working with 2-5 year old children. She eventually became a fully qualified early childhood development practitioner, currently the only one in Pearston, and started teaching at the Crèche. Over the years, she took on more responsibility at the school, and currently she is the Director of Sunshine Crèche and is committed to ensuring that every child at her school receives the care and attention he or she needs in order to learn.
