Creche Pretoria

Creche Pretoria

Creche Pretoria is dedicated to providing a warm and loving family environment for children. While our smaller classroom sizes, we are able to give quality, individualized care to families at affordable prices, and we also offer various discounts and vouchers to help with the overall cost of care.  For a child with special needs, Creche Pretoria works to provide the best care possible, while helping the family explore all additional resources to enhance the child’s well-being.

Children here at Creche Pretoria are encouraged to be children; we do not believe they are small adults. The individual progress, growth, and development of every child is important to us. The environment at Creche Pretoria promotes learning while having fun during the process. Through a mixture of hands-on experiences, group activities, and individual play, our children develop the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical skills necessary for all aspects of life and growth.

Our Philosophy

Creche Pretoria believes that children are unique, highly capable beings who develop at their own pace. It is the role of educators to nurture, support, and celebrate each child as an individual.

We cultivate the ability to wonder, to question, to explore, to discover, to think critically, and to be compassionate as students pursue their interests while mastering the skills required to be happy, effective members of society.

Our Mission

Our purpose is to educate students to be the best versions of themselves as we provide them with the essential tools to be critical, creative, compassionate thinkers and responsible, engaged citizens ready to transform the world.

Creche Pretoria offers a state-of-the-art, modern, safe, and comfortable environment where children can experience, discover, explore, grow, and learn important interdependence & readiness skills to become life-long learners.

Why Creche Pretoria?

Progressive Education

Our program combines Social Constructivism, the Reggio Emilia philosophy and Montessori education

These ideologies not only value the human spirit but also the development of the whole child – physical, problem solving, academic, social, emotional and creative areas.

Progressive education provides the tools for active learning that utilize the innate curiosity in all children. Education is successful when children are inspired to delve broadly and deeply into learning.

Social and Emotional Development

The socio-emotional development of a child is imperative for academic success. A happy, confident child learns best.

At Creche Pretoria, we nurture the whole child as a member of a family, a classroom, and a community.

An Engaging Environment

Classroom and school environments are thoughtfully designed and arranged in a way that engages and informs students beyond the direction a teacher provides. The goal is to create an atmosphere that fosters creative exploration, demonstrates respect for children’s work, while encouraging encounters, communication, and relationships.

Parent comments and suggestions are encouraged and are taken into serious consideration as we continually adapt to new challenges. The children are not the only ones who are engaged in the learning experience – all of our staff and parents also learn from the children.
