My name is Tanija Botha; I grew up playing outside and keeping myself busy with whatever my sisters and I could find in and around the house. I had a wonderful childhood filled with exploring, great adventures and journeys to magical places. Holidays were mostly spent surrounded by family – a large extended family – at the seaside, building sandcastles and going on hikes up mountains!
Always having had a passion for children and the way they learn, I went to study Educational Psychology at Stellenbosch University. After my studies, I went on a gap year adventure to Holland and became a part of a small family for a year. Keeping little hands busy and seeing how a child grows (to become) ready to read and learn, is such a remarkable experience.
I am passionate about creating opportunities to learn and explore. These boxes are so much more than the sum of all their parts. They offer a space for kids to learn and develop the skills needed throughout life. They hold hours of play and discovery.
