Message from the Principal

My philosophy of pre-school education is that each learner should be seen as a unique individual and should be treated with respect. It is my dream to create an atmosphere where all learners can thrive and meet their full potential. The school environment should stimulate the learners physically, mentally, emotionally and socially.

Welcome to our ECD centre

Early Childhood Development (ECD) can be defined as the physical, cognitive and social development that a child experiences prior to the learner reaching his/her preparatory school entering age. ECD therefore lays the groundwork for successful learning supporting the child to progress into, and adapt to, formal schooling.

Our approach is one of recognising the inherent holistic nature of the child thus seeking to develop all aspects of every child being social, emotional, intellectual, aesthetic and physical potential. This is implemented through active participation in a structured programme.
