“Andrea is an approachable, person-oriented and hands-on individual who provided my family with an excellent service in her capacity as Director at Lonehill Village Pre-School and Creche. She is confident in her subject matter and an authority on all matters pertaining to education and development. This was displayed in her meetings with parents and via an informative weekly school newsletter. Andrea’s outstanding management capability was evident in her ability to respond competitively to changing technological business conditions. This was evident when she implemented a website to extend information and communication regarding school matters with parents (stakeholders) and the community at large. Andrea never compromised on quality- she was constantly upgrading school equipment, facilities, and teachers attended development programmes. Health and safety were always her primary concern, with first aid courses also extended to parents for safety in the home. She will definitely succeed in any business or organisation simply because she is passionate, customer satisfaction-oriented and knows how to build lasting business relationships.” – Rachel Pillay, November 26, 2012

“I first met Andrea several years ago, when my twins were enrolled at her pre-school. The reason for me deciding on this school was that it had a good track record and was recommended by Crawford as a feeder school at the time. On meeting with Andrea, I found the school to be above average and well managed. Througout the past 18 years, my relationship with Andrea has grown and gone from strenght to strength.
Recently I had the privilege to launch a new company with Andrea and I have found her to be dynamic and enthusiastic to work with. She is innovative in all business plans and pays attention to detail. This I feel will be a valuable asset to any company.
Her people skills are exceptional, as are her skills in finance. She works hard in all ventures and gives 100% to her job. She is motivated and pro-active and comes as highly recommended.” – Shanday Lorelei Andrews, November 26, 2012
