My name is Megan, founder of the Toddler Course. I am married to my wonderful husband, Gus. We have been married for 10 years this year and have two beautiful children, Asher and Georgia. Asher is 2 and a half years old and he is the inspiration behind the toddler course. Georgia is 16 months and the inspiration behind the baby course (coming soon). We were part of the 2 under 2 club but thankfully that has passed and things are starting to get a bit easier with our crazy 15month old age gap!
We are both primary school teachers. Gus is a Digital Tech K-12 co-ordinator and loves all things technical, robotics and gaming. He is in charge of all the technical aspects of the business. Megan is an early childhood teacher and just loves the creative side of things. So when the machine breaks, I throw my hands up in the air and yell for Gus.
I have a passion for education and seeing children grow and develop and I have loved watching our little man grow and use the skills and knowledge from teaching to facilitate his growth.
We are originally from South Africa. I taught in a Montessori school for 3-5 year olds for 2 years. We then travelled to Hong Kong and taught English. I taught in an international kindergarten and was privileged enough to help write the curriculum for the new school.
After working in Hong Kong, we decided it was time to ‘settle down’ in Perth, Australia. I worked in a daycare at first, which opened up my eyes to the EYFS and also again Montessori and the Reggio Emilia Approach. I then got a job in a private school as a Year 1 teacher. The school was inspired by the Walker Learning Approach which is an incredible approach for children and gives them autonomy to choose their own learning.
I first created a small business called Beautiful Everytime which focused on our very popular Montessori Inspired Play Trays and this has very rapidly grown and caused us to branch out. I have since expanded our business into a laser engraving business with beautiful personalised keepsakes and gifts. We have since introduced a wide range of learning products as well as baby products.
I have loved how much this little business has grown and developed over the short time and I look forward to seeing where it goes!
I absolutely LOVE wood and natural products, but I’m also a lover of tan leather. I just love tan leather with everything
Our business has evolved from Beautiful Everytime, Birch Please and now proudly THE TODDLER COURSE and HELLO PURL.
In everything we create and design, we will be true to who we are and what we love, we hope you love them too!
Thank you for joining in on our journey!
