Hi my name is Ruanda and I have owned the Berea Moms and Tots for 14 years and the Moms and Babes for 10 years. I am a qualified Montessori Teacher and studied through London Montessori Centre 22 years ago. I am a mother of 4 beautiful children, 2 boys and 2 girls, my oldest being 21 and my youngest 7 years old, so as you can imagine I have a wealth of experience, practical advice and knowledge.

I bring a depth of experience in loving, nurturing, and teaching to my business. That’s not to say that I know it all, far from it, however I am passionate about the Mother/Child relationship and how it impacts on almost all of our relationships. At the Berea Moms and Babes/Tots Workshops we offer “world class education” in “a holistic and integral way.” Our ethos is to first and foremost nurture and love the child in a way which enhances the Babes/Tot’s overall educative development in partnership with Mom. What a privilege to watch as these 8 week olds start with us barely able to lift their little heads and leave at the age of 3 ½ years old confident and independent with a mutual respect between them and their Mom’s and a definite love for learning new and exciting things about the world around them as they head off into the “big world.”

We believe in developing the Tot’s intellectual, emotional, spiritual and physical well-being and growth through their senses, fun, songs, play and “Messy Play,” as Babes/ Tots learn effortlessly in this manner. At the Berea Moms and Babes/Tots Workshops we help give our Babes/Tots the tools they need to grow in an age appropriate way, and equip them to become all they can be, reaching their full potential. The value your Babe/Tot and you will experience is priceless, we live to educate to the highest standards in small classes limited in size, in an intimate group setting. When children are happy in “a holistic way,” learning is fun. We are proud of the fact that we are the educative experience of choice in Durban. We have had numerous children attend our workshops that have been severely pre-mature, hearing impaired and Down Syndrome and they have blossomed and grown just like their peers.

For the working Moms we have Saturday Classes, cause I have always been a working Mom and I don’t see why you should have to miss out on your Babe’s/Tot’s Developmental Milestones just because you are at work.

We invite you to join us for an awesome experience that will leave you richer in the area of practical knowledge and lasting friendships as you partner with me and other Mothers who can totally identify and relate to your current experiences, trials and tribulations. A problem shared is a problem solved. Not to mention that the coffee and cake at the end of the lesson is your great reward, that and of course watching you cherub grow in leaps and bounds on a weekly basis.

Sign up today you won’t regret on minute of your decision. In fact you’ll wish you had done it sooner.
