"Anande spent 3 days at our special school for intellectually disabled children, teaching, nurturing and encouraging us on all things play related. She has been the springboard for the play adventure we are on now. It is such a pleasure to watch our children grown and develop through play - it is like watching a butterfly emerge from a cocoon. Best of all - Anande is always availble to bounce ideas off, ask questions about what we are observing and give ideas on how to nudge children on in their play journeys. It has been a valuable investment to have Anande visit our school. I would encourage any school who wants to make play an important part of their programme, to invite Anande to come and train and equip you."

"What a fantastic resource! Loads of very helpful resources that are quick and easy to access. I most appreciate how Anandé has translated her wealth of knowledge on childhood development into an accessible format with very manageable and practical ways for families to implement these crucial aspects of “play” into everyday life."
"Discovering PlayMore has been life-altering to our family. I felt clueless at times, not knowing where to find trustworthy advice on the challenges that our family faced. Anande's easy to follow, insightful Masterclasses gave me the knowledge and confidence to apply her guidelines at home. Our family has thrived ever since; having a calmer yet more interactive toddler that finally goes to sleep without any hassle - not to mention more relaxed parents! Anande, we are ever grateful to you!"
