Peuter Kleuter/Infant & Toddler Pre-School

Peuter Kleuter/Infant & Toddler Pre-School is a small independent, dual-medium nursery school in Birchleigh, Kempton Park that provides high-quality early childhood education for children 6 months to 6 years (Grade R). Our small classes allow our dedicated teachers to engage each child in our internally developed play-based curriculum and to build strong, caring relationships with each child.

We have an excellent work relationship with all the government and private primary schools (Afrikaans & English) in the Kempton Park area, which allows our children to easily progress from pre-primary to primary school in a familiar environment.

We are renowned for offering a family-orientated, academic, sporting, and culturally rich environment.

There is so much potential in every child. Our vision is to exploit each child’s potential and to teach children from an early age to be independent and confident.

We are a proud member of the SA Childcare Association, and we are fully COVID-19 compliant.
