  Easter midterm is from the 25th of March to the 5th of April. There will be no Montessori/ECCE session during these 2 weeks. Classes resume at 9am on Monday 8th of April.

  • A lot of clothing items have been left behind in the crèche for a while now. We are requesting parents to check out these items to see if any belongs to them. The boxes containing the items are in the downstairs hallway and will be kept until the end of March after which they will be sent to charity organisations. Thank you.
  • We would also like to remind all parents that children should not bring in their own toys to crèche. As you can understand we do not want children’s toys to go home damaged in any way and bringing them in can cause great confusion to other children who think they belong to the crèche. This can cause unwanted bickering and unease amongst the children.


Reminder to all parents that you can join our Facebook and Twitter pages and receive this monthly newsletter and other information, just go our website and follow the links
