Sunninghill preschool & creche is registered. Established in 1997 our priority is the safety and wellbeing of our children. We offer a small, loving and nurturing environment in which children can grow, learn & flourish. We are located in a secure area with 24-hour security and within close proximity to Sunninghill Hospital.
Sunninghill preschool & creche work with the integration of the Department of Education’s Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS) alongside Montessori principles. We are certified to care for 49 children. However, in the interest of keeping our environment calm and tranquil, we accept 15 children dependent on the personalities of the children in our care.
Sunninghill preschool & creche promote a child cantered approach developing the child on an emotional, physical, social and academic level. The intention is confident, responsible children who respect their environment and each other. Much is achieved through play. “When people hear the word play, they think it’s relaxation, that it’s messing about. But we see that play is crucial as a partner in learning. It’s in play that you learn to communicate and identify problems.” Professor Elizabeth Henning – Director of the University of Johannesburg Centre for Education Practice Research.
