"It takes a village to raise a child"

After starting my career in the disability sector too many years ago to mention, I have always had a passion to make a difference for children and their families. Fast forward 20 plus years, a great deal of study and life experience and here I am as a registered child and family health nurse, with over 16 years experience as an educator, coach and mentor.

CHILD SA is the way that I would like to offer what I have learnt to make a difference for children and families. The past six years of my career have been spent working with vulnerable children and families in early learning and care. I have learnt an enormous amount about what a difference one person can make in the life of a child and the importance of connection and relationships.
The training and support we offer is centred around the traditional African proverb, “it takes a village to raise a child”. We will empower individuals, teams and families to connect to their ‘village’ and offer the education and support to make a true difference for our children.
