the wonder of learning!

In St Andrew’s Pre-Primary garden, splendid old trees provide a backdrop to the climbing and balancing apparatus so important for young children’s holistic development. Girls and boys aged 3 to 6 years (Grade 000 – Grade R) feel secure and contented as they build in the sand-pit, play with water, and create their own adventures amongst the trees.

The well qualified staff are early childhood specialists who understand the needs of young children, and classrooms are designed around the developmental needs of young children. From the bright, colourful children’s art displayed on the walls, to the games and toys which are organized to encourage problem solving and independence, every facet of this environment is child-friendly. We stimulate the inherent desire to learn and to grow with staff who have the same passion for learning.

A few steps away, the Grade R classroom ensures that 5 and 6 year olds are well prepared for the formal learning environment of Grade 1. For part of each day the Grade R’s have the opportunity to engage in active learning experiences in the beautiful garden and indoor areas with the younger children.
