Preschool, nursery school, kindergarten & creche
Petra’s Edu-Playgroup is a fully private, unique, passionate owner run preschool founded in 1992. Our setting is in a beautiful large garden in which children spend many hours learning through play.
We welcome children from 3 months old up to and including Grade Rs. Our children are nurtured by amazing facilitators (teachers and assistants).
Reggio Emilia inspired learning
We are inspired by the Reggio Emilia Philosophy and follow an integrated and emergent curriculum. We are guided by the children’s current interests and ensure that all skills are developed while ‘studying’ the various topics of interests in a project based manner.
We learn through discovery, experimentation and exploration using our senses and enjoy sensory experiences daily enjoying mud, water, clay and sand play.
Under the African Sea Music Album
After 30 years in the biz, local ECD educator launches children’s music album! Coming soon to Apple Music and in limited hard copy is a collection of original, locally produced songs about the many sea creatures we can find in our African seas. The album will be available on Friday 19th November on all music platforms. At present two songs available on Apple Music.
We include all members of our school community in our emergent teaching: the gardener the guards, the chefs and parents of our school. We support the beautiful WINGS OF HOPE SCHOOL in Belgravia.
Please feel free to visit our beautiful play-based learning environment.
NaturEd - school tours & extra mural activities
We offer preschool and school outings in the forest for children to connect directly with nature through curiosity, discovery and inquiry, engaging all five senses. This encourages optimal development of neural pathways in the brain for cognitive, physical, socio-emotional and spiritual growth. Extra murals are ongoing every week. You can also book a school tour with us.
Learning while playing in nature naturally develops problem- solving, creative thinking, self- regulation and risk awareness skills. Nature is healing and calming and in today’s crazy busy world and classrooms filled with pressure, noise and stress, children need to be given time in nature to be calm in heart, body and soul.
