early childcare is a ‘dream come true’ for me. After a fulfilling and

blessed with an amazing, supportive and loving family – husband Daniel, Tobie &
wife Jess with little Bjorn, Esmari & husband Jan with their two darling little
girls - Ninke and Lisa-Mari and Elmar & wife Ane. I’m involved with our
church worship team where I play the piano. I also do a bit of oil painting,
love being in nature and spending time with family and friends. Life is SUCH a
