Important School Information: Kyalami Ridge Creche and Preschool
Kyalami Ridge Creche and Preschool is not a large institution with
millions of backing from shareholders or corporations wanting to
make profits at the end of the day, or forcing the issue with the
parents in that if you send your child to their school he/she will
be guaranteed a space for the duration of his schooling future
education. "Provided that your child excels in his studies" It is
about being true to the child in the child's world. Watching the
child play, learn, succeed through exploring, dreaming, and
discovering. These large nursery schools with 3 classes per grade,
do they really have the children's interest at heart?
We do not have an obligation to fill the classes to maximum capacity.

WHY WE ARE DIFFERENT
Kyalami Ridge offers a true child world experience.
We offer the same quality care and teaching at a significantly cheaper rate than the surrounding larger schools.
Our facilities are also first class and modern.
We have smaller groups of one class per age group.
Consider this example: 4 classes of the same age group (18 - 24 children) per group which equals to +- 96 children per age group. Times 96 children x 4 different age groups between 3 years and 6 years. Imagine +- 384 children under the age of 6 years occupying a premises of 7000 sq. metre. Where does individuality, personal attention and quality care come in? How many children get lost in this system of education?
We don't put children into uniforms, they are individuals. We allow for self-expression. If a child wants to dress as Spiderman or a fairy so be it. We allow it. This builds character and personality. If a child wants to bring their special toy to school we also allow it.
We bake with the children once a week, making scones, biscuits and breads. We have our farm yard for the children to visit and our own vegetable gardens and fruit trees where they can see the vegetables and fruit grow.
We provide a wholesome snack and lunch for the children. Most of the vegetables come from our own gardens. Food is always available in our kitchen for the hungry child.
The children can bring their breakfast to school and eat it in the classrooms before school starts. We also keep the cereals at school and make breakfast for the children.
We have science classes for our grade 4/5 and Grade R.
As the owner/principal I enjoy being present in the school every day and greet each child/parent individually as they come into school and go home each day.
When a child is sad or needs that extra TLC they know they can freely come into the office to the principal for that special attention.
All our teachers and assistants help build healthy relations and interact with all the children, from babies to Grade R. This builds unity and fellowship amongst children and staff alike. Holiday care and aftercare are included in your tutorial school fees and are not an additional charge like other schools.
Your child's class teacher is part of the aftercare team so that continuation of communication between parent and teacher, and between teacher and child is not lost when the child goes to aftercare.
