Early Childhood Development Centre

Our ECD centre is more than just a drop-off pre-school. We provide a secure, stimulating and flexible environment in which children may develop socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively.

Message from our HOD

We develop learners holistically and help them to achieve their fullest potential in a safe, stimulating, loving and joyful environment that makes learning possible.
Our school is a community where all learners feel loved, respected and encouraged to reach their full potential. We encourage each child to be independent, to develop a sense of responsibility and to respect all others in their environment. Mistakes are not seen as failures but as opportunities to learn from.

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 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: social, emotional, intellectual, aesthetic and physical potential. This is implemented through active participation in a structured programme.
