Suzanne Engelbrecht obtained her degree in Occupational Therapy from the University of Stellenbosch in 2019. In the following year, she moved to Prieska, NC to complete her community service year and noticed that parents must travel far distances and spend a lot of money for child support services.
“I completely fell in love with the tranquillity of the countryside and grew very fond of its down-to-earth residents. I, therefore, decided to serve the community with knowledge, skills, and passion for children that I developed during my years of study.”
She values a holistic approach – not just looking at one aspect of a child’s performance but considering all spheres that might have an influence on the child’s development and scholastic performance. This might include motor components, cognitive components, emotional or behavioural components.
Suzanne is also aspiring to complete her Master’s degree in Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) in the following years.
