Testimonial: Wallum Community Preschool & Family Centre
We have been using Pilanky’s at our Preschool for over four years.
The Pilanky’s are a wonderful resource in our Preschool.
They are soft, comfortable, practical and easy for children to use independently.
Our children love getting their personalised Pilanky’s with their name embroidered on them upon enrolment. This helps children settle into Preschool.
They are great for Educators; they are light, quick and easy to prepare for rest time, and great for Educators backs, as they is no awkward or low lifting of beds.
Pilanky’s are stored easily, taking up minimal space at Preschool and at families’ homes.
The children love to use their Pilanky’s for camping and sleepovers, when not at Preschool.
Jo’s service is exceptional – fast, reliable and friendly.
I would highly recommend Pilanky’s for any Early Learning service.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which we live and work.
Tweed Heads Mumpreneur is a finalist in the national AusMumpreneur Awards
Tweed Heads, 14th August 2018, Johanna Constable, Creator of Pilanky By Happy Jo Designs, is a finalist of the Regional Business AusMumpreneur Awards for her all in one kids travel beds for children aged 1-6. The awards take place in Melbourne on the 30th and 31st of August.Jo says: “I invented the Pilanky as I realised that parents were losing sheets, blankets and pillows at Daycare. I produced an all-in-one bed with a sheet and blanket attached to mattress and pillow as an easy solution.”
“Interstate and Local Daycare centres who I have supplied the Pilanky to, find it space saving and handy and easy to roll up after rest time.”
Pilanky beds are used at daycare, pre-school, kindy, at sleepovers, camping trips and when travelling on holiday. The beds are easy to carry, roll up, store and parents can be sure that they won’t lose a pillow, sheet or blanket. Kids feel comforted no matter where they sleep as they have their usual bed, pillow, sheets and blankets.
Jo adds: “I found that the Pilanky also offers young children security and comfort in their bed which helps with separation anxiety at Daycare. “
“My future hopes and dreams for the business is to continue the Pilanky’s rapid growth so that the Pilanky can become a ‘household name’ across Australia. I hope that families enjoy the benefits of the Pilanky’s practicality. As practical as the Pilanky is for the parents and carers, feedback shows that it’s also a thrill for the kids to have their own personalised Pilanky which they love sleeping in!”
Johanna has been able to juggle the day-to day running of a business while being there for her daughter’s precious childhood years from home.
“It can be challenging to be a successful business woman whilst raising a family and Johanna gives this advice for others thinking about starting their own enterprise.” Don’t Give Up! I have lived my dream for 9 years and now my business has become so successful. Don’t listen to the ‘Naysayers’! Get a support team and systems together that can help you with growing your business”.
