About Fun Mamma SA
Fun Mamma SA was created in 2012 as a Facebook community page to educate, encourage and inspire parents.
Fun Mamma SA was created by Judy Dooley.
When moving to Jhb from a farm in the Eastern Cape , she was mortified to find an advert in a local newspaper advertising classes to teach children to climb trees and play in mud. Having noted a difference in how her 6 home schooled country children were growing up and the fast paced urban kids, she hoped to bring back some of the magic and fun back into children’s lives.
With the birth of her 7th child in September 2016, she launched the Fun Mamma SA blog as a platform to continue educating, inspiring and encouraging other parents and educators.
