Turtle Den is a home away from home. My daughter’s health has improved which had drastically deteriorated when she started at her previous nursery school. Thank you for taking best care of our children, keeping them safe and happy. Keep up the good work!!

A happy mom

We appreciate the help received, my son began at Turtle Den 2 at 2years (still on dummy and nappy), and in two weeks they had managed to take him off the dummy and could use the potty in less than a month. He couldn’t say any English word as we speak Sepedi in the house,…

Overseeing tutor
Hailing from dusty townships of Rustenburg in Northwest to Gauteng my aim was to become a bookkeeper. I studied to become an accountant, but I realised that my passion and interest are in teaching. As a warm cheerful woman I can be counted on to bring sunshine into other people’s life, taking teaching as my professional career is interesting as I had an opportunity to inspire, build and shape-up a child. I love to socialise with people around me and often adapt in art pursuits like dancing and drawing. I enjoy drawing.
