Small Beginner's

Capacity: 20 children aged 3-6 years old

Preschool's Vision:

The vision is to provide all young children in our care with a high quality, independent learning experience in a safe and hygienic building with trained teachers who implement age-specific programs in an organisation that implements quality management practices.

Principal's story:

I worked at Southern Cross hospital, running my own little crèche. I did that for a while and then I was approached by the matron to aupair for her. I was out of work then, but couldn’t see myself NOT working with children. Shortly after I found out my son had a learning disability. I took him for O.T. and learnt a lot about how to work with special needs children. I started working again and ran into some family difficulties, deciding to resign. I enrolled to study further and in 2016 I started my own ECD centre.

Children need to have a safe, reliable place where they can come everyday. While they are with me they can be children, free to practice being independent. I wake up every morning with the idea in my head that I’m going to teach my children something new that day.

How to help:

Volunteer:

We need fundraising champions. Get creative – run a marathon on your front yard, host a virtual high tea, do something amazing and encourage your friends and family to change the world through early learning.

We rely on volunteers to lend a helping hand when teachers are off sick. To work in the classroom you need an up-to-date security check.

Sponsor an ECD Bursary Partnership:

Help us get Covid-19 Ready:

We need to meet all health and safety requirements and Covid-19 protocols in order to open our centre to children in September. Our vulnerable children are missing out on wholesome meals and our love and care.

We want to offer our children a safe space where they can learn and thrive.
