about the owner

Fran Grobbelaar

I’m a major creative who thrives off creating meaningful, educational, and most importantly fun and safe Messy Play Workshops and Parties for Toddlers and Young Children.

Since I was a teenager, I’ve known that I wanted to work with children. After having a successful career as a preschool teacher and principal at CBC St Johns, I chose to put down the “chalk” to raise my daughter, Charley. 

I have since directed my passion into Sensory Seekers with the aim of creating a safe and welcoming space for parents to connect with their child(ren) and other parents, while creating a meaningful community of like-minded parents, because we all know it takes a village!
