Gr. PR – 07:30 – 12:00

AFTERCARE

Aftercare facilities are available from 12:00 to 17:30. This also includes a waiting class until 14:00 for children with older brothers or sisters or those whose parents cannot fetch them at 12:00.

FACILITIES

We have spacious, clean, well equipped classrooms and a wonderful playground with specially designed apparatus which allows our learners to develop both physically and mentally. Our Pre-Primary area is well fenced and provides a safe, secure space for our little ones. Our close proximity to the Grade 1 classrooms means that the transition to “Big School” is a very easy one for our Grade R learners as they are familiar with the environment.
