How to use our Preschools Directory


We have organised preschools into areas to help you find a nursery school close to your home or work. You will also notice the ‘search by suburb’ button so if you wish to narrow your search down, click on the search button to search for your suburb or a suburb near you.

Which approach is best for your child


How do you decide what kind of nursery school you want for your child? There is so much on offer with an assortment of preschools or nursery schools ranging from those that follow Maria Montessori or Reggio Emilia methods, Christian or multi-denominational ones. Some schools have a huge selection of extra murals on offer while others limit the offering but focus on quality. Many of these preschools accept babies and toddlers as young as a few months old and operate as daycare centres too. With the added offering of aftercare, you can be rest assured that your little one is well looked-after and stimulated.

Which area suits you best


As you can see, we have long lists of preschools in Johannesburg, Midrand, Pretoria and Centurion. You will also find lists of preschools on the East Rand and the West Rand. You can check the offering in each area and decide whether to choose a school close by or find one that offers an approach that interests you. So many parents nowadays travel to the school of their choice rather than the one closest to them. It's important to shop around before making your final decision and talk to other parents.

Begin your search


We invite you to browse our extensive listings to find the perfect preschool for your little one. Many of these pre-schools also rent out their venues for kids birthday parties and organise holiday care activities during the school holidays.
