 2016 Entrepreneur of the Year® finalist, Mishje Cooper, ZooZoo Land Daycare


 Mishje Cooper, founder of ZooZoo Land Daycare — a Parklands crèche and preschool — purchased her first school in 2009, but her entrepreneurial journey began a year earlier when her son was born.

​​​​Having started looking at preschools for her then unborn child, Mishje was horrified at the level of care being offered; often walking out of prospective schools in tears. This was when she made the decision to begin a preschool. With no formal experience or training, other than her strong maternal instincts and life–long love for babies and children, Mishje set out to begin a home–based informal arrangement to help parents based in the broader Parklands area in Cape Town who had to return to work and were looking for a safe educational haven in which they could leave their children.
