Company Track Record

Nicola Maree is the owner of Po10chil Educational Centre. As qualified Teacher and Remedial Therapist (Bed: Early Childhood Education and Bed Honours: Learning Support) she is familiar with the problems faced by children in the Foundation Phase. Without a solid foundation in place, progressing to their full potential later in in their school career is merely impossible.

Based in Pretoria East, Gauteng, Po10chil Educational Centre caters for children between the ages of 4 and 12 years old. It is Nicola’s dream to expand Po10chil Educational Centre businesses to all corners of South Africa. She intends doing this by creating a strong, solid and stable network of dedicated educational professionals in the form of Po10chil Educational Centre franchisees. The franchisees will be carefully taught how to run a successful educational franchise as well as how to follow the Po10chil Educational Centre business system. With excellent training and qualified back up business support, Nicola is confident that her franchise business can bring tremendous change to South Africa’s children – not only academically but also emotionally.

Products and Services

A range of materials and products are available to ensure that a child’s learning experience stays exciting, interesting and fun.

Po10chil Educational Centre is a practise that offers a variety of child related services. Our main service (currently) is Remedial Support. Remedial Support involves intensive individual assistance in the areas of learning where the learner experiences problems and we additionally address perceptual skills which have not been mastered yet.

After learners have been assessed to determine problem areas, an individual program is compiled for each learner and, depending the outcome of the assessment, several sessions per week will be recommended. A comprehensive report of the outcome of the assessment will be provided to the parents. To facilitate progress, it is recommended that a learner attends at least one session per week over a period of at least 6 months. A follow-up assessment will be done every two to three months to determine the progress of the learner and to provide the parents with feedback.

A child can join at any time between the ages of 4 and 12 years when a problem is detected. The earlier the better.


Po10chil Educational Centre’s makes use of their Po10chil Packs (School readiness Packs) to assist parents in helping their children to develop to their full potential. We also have a range – Junior Po10chil Packs for younger children (ages 1 to 5 years old).

Nolene Rust – Moot

I am extremely passionate about my everyday work with children.  I love connecting with kids and spending time to get to know each one’s individual characteristics, strengths and sense of humour.  My passion was ignited already in high school when I was exposed to the thrilling field of counselling and play therapy.  My passion grew over the years from learning to utilize play in assisting children through emotional awareness, healing from trauma to parental guidance and strengthening parent/child attachments, through helping parents understand their child’s unique temperament.

As a registered school counsellor I have the opportunity to also invest myself in helping children find their potential and taste success academically.  The various services that Po01chil has to offer brings any child closer to believing in him/herself and reaching his/her potential.  I absolutely love playing a part in this!  I am of the opinion that God has given every child the gift of an amazing brain that is capable of infinitely more than we can ever imagine.  The sky is truly the limit!  And, for me, it is an amazing privilege walking alongside a child on such a journey.

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, a kind word. An honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which has the potential to turn a life around” Leo Buscaglia

Claudia Rautenbach – Moreleta Park

As a mom of a 2 year old, with a counselling practice specialising in play therapy, I believe I understand a parent’s heart and how challenging it can be for all of us. I also like to believe my own background and absolute love for children has equipped me for helping families deal with their emotions.

Each little human is unique and when concentrating on their needs individually, their potential shines through. My hope is that every parent can truly see their child’s exceptional abilities by themselves and not compared to others.

With faith anything is possible, and I don’t believe this door would have been opened for me if it was not God’s will. Everything happens for a reason and I am hoping to make a difference in so many more lives on this journey with Po10chil.

“Before you were born, I set you apart” Jeremiah 1:5

Eleen Thompson – Hartenbos

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”.  I believe that one of the key roles of a therapist is to instil the belief in every child that they can achieve anything they want.  I absolutely love working with children.  I believe every child should have the opportunity to develop to their full potential.  I believe this is the path that God chose for me.  As a mother I love being involved in the lives of children – and making a positive change in the lives of these humans is my absolute passion.  Children learn in different ways and I see this as part of my responsibility: to help children learn and to develop fully.  At Po10chil every child receives individual attention and support.  Seeing them grow is rewarding and an amazing experience.

I am a qualified Foundation Phase teacher with a degree in Psychology.  I also completed a Diploma in Play Therapy.

Phil. 4:33 “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.”

Chanté Janse van Rensburg – Centurion (Clubview)

During the final year of my BE.d studies I was introduced to Remedial Therapy. I knew immediately thatʼs what I needed to do. The completion of my BE.d in the Foundation Phase stands as the foundation of my future with Po10chil. My future prospects is to study play therapy through PTISA (Play Therapy International South Africa). Emotional and academic essentials always connect and overlap. Therefore, to be the best I want to equip myself to do the very best I can for each child.

The Lord declares in Proverbs when you direct children on the right path they wonʼt depart from it.

“Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.” This promise I want to pursue and practice so that the Lord may be glorified through His Word and the growth of each child.

I absolutely love children. They are the worlds greatest blessing! My passion is to guide and lead them on the path to success and fulfillment. They are the future, therefore they need to be treated with utmost respect and care.

Proverbs22:6 (New Living Translation)
