It’s really hard to believe that 2018 is coming to an end.
What a fantastic year it’s been for us at Wriggle and Rhyme!
Here are some of our 2018 highlights:
TERM 1 – New horizons
In January, we opened a branch in MELKBOSSTRAND with Marcelle Grobbelaar. This was a big step for us, and it’s been a fantastic success.
Marcelle has embraced our business model and brought our unique music programme to this seaside town, with her beautiful voice and teaching expertise.

Clarice Pechau-Whitton took over our CLAREMONT branch at the beginning of the year too and has grown Wriggle and Rhyme in the area. Her warm and bubbly personality brings out the best in the parents and children that she connects with.

TERM 2 – Special anniversaries
In April, Samantha Coogan celebrated the one year anniversary of running our CONSTANTIA branch. She organised a sweet party for her customers and even made it into the local Constantiaberg Bulletin
In June, Robyn Jepson also celebrated her third anniversary of running our MEADOWRIDGE branch. She also celebrated in style with special treats for her customers and was also featured in the Constantiaberg Bulletin.

TERM 3 – Another chapter
We started Term 3 with a bang as we opened our first branch in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town in July. Johleen Vlok joined our team, opening a branch at her home in Kleinbosch which is known as “Wriggle and Rhyme – PANORAMA”. Johleen has been a real asset to our team and is doing a terrific job of bringing Wriggle and Rhyme to her area.

TERM 4 – 10 years old
October is our birthday month! This year was our 10th birthday and we had so much on the go to celebrate this significant milestone.

In addition to features in a number of local newspapers, we ran competitions to win gorgeous bespoke 10th birthday goodie bags. We also partnered with some top mommy bloggers who celebrated with us.

We also hosted a fabulous 10th birthday party, where our staff and their children celebrated together. We invited a group of VIP children who were part of our programme 10 years ago. They serenaded us with a little music concert celebrating how far their musical skills have come. There were presents all round, as well as a beautiful birthday cake to enjoy!
