Foreword by Professor Jonathan Jansen. 

Jane Evans is the founder and former-CEO of Ntataise Network Support Programme and an advocate of Early Childhood Development (ECD) and adult teaching in rural communities.

She has held positions on a number of ECD government bodies, including the Helen Suzman Foundation, the St Anne’s School board of governors, PAST and the Lee Berger Foundation for Exploration Trust. She has received a number of awards, including “Woman of the Year” awarded by the Star newspaper, the Johannesburg College of Education’s Rectors Gold medal “for exceptional contribution to education in South Africa”, and the Chancellors Medal awarded by the University of Pretoria.

"Jane Evans is a name that has earned enormous respect in Early Childhood Development circles. The fact that ECD is an essential pillar in our country’s programme of educational reform owes much to Jane and other activists of the time – many of whom are mentioned in her book. While this is a personal memoir it is also an important record of ECD in South Africa." Dr Tshepo Motsepe, First Lady of South Africa
