As a qualified teacher and a mom of two (especially of a busy, talking and interactive toddler), I am always looking for new, fun and exciting games, toys and educational activities to excite SJ with.
I’ve recently come across the genius idea that is 

is a play-based educational programme targeting 0-6 year-olds. By focusing on
your child’s development through the use of age-appropriate toys, tools and
activities, Mysmartkid promotes school readiness with its integrated early
childhood development (EDC) offering.
The programme aims to cut through the clutter of
toys, information and well-meaning ‘advice’ that overwhelm many new and
expectant parents. Designed by a panel of leading experts, this exciting new subscription-based
service offers convenience, value-for-money and a timesaver all in one.  
The childhood development experts, from
occupational and play therapists to child psychologists, have been closely
involved in the development of the programme and their professional insights and
expertise will be a source of trust and assurance for parents everywhere. 
What is
it all about?
is based on the principle that play-based
activities are the optimal medium of brain development and learning in the 0-6
age group. Several key age-appropriate milestones are naturally reached during
this period of intensive growth and development, and Mysmartkid aims to maximise and enrich this process through its
interactive, engaging and stimulating programme.
For busy, working parents, one of the added
benefits of the programme is the peace of mind of knowing that your child’s
play time is targeted towards his/her development – and that your child is
reaching his/her milestones at the right time.
How does it work?
New members subscribe to the Mysmartkid subscription programme for a 12-month period, thereafter
it continues on a month to month basis. On joining, you’ll receive welcome
gifts of a kiddies’ backpack (valued at R175) and an exclusive parent handbook written
by an occupational therapist taking you step-by-step through your child’s ECD
Every two months, members receive a Smartbox of curated
toys and activities for your child, delivered free of charge anywhere in South
Africa. Smartbox in hand, all that’s left for you to do is unpack the box,
learn how to use the goodies and then introduce them to your child – and play,
play play! Every Smartbox is accompanied by a full-colour parent guide packed
with relevant advice and information from our experts, as well as guidelines
for using the materials. Members will also receive a monthly email newsletter
jam-packed with additional information, advice and activities.
The programme groups children into the following
age groups: 0-1 years; 1-2 years; 2-3 years; 3-4 years; 4-5 years; and 5-6
years. When registering, members are required to fill in their child’s age (you
can register more than one child and each child will have his/her own account).  On the child’s birthday the system will
automatically move the subscription up to the next age range.
a Mysmartkid subscriber, you’ll have
member login access to the website programme’s free information, expert advice
and additional information – as well as exclusive member-only discounts through
the Mysmartkid online shop. The expert panel of child development experts, psychologist and play therapists continually
assess and update the programme to ensure it remains current and relevant in
accordance with the latest developments in early learning studies.
