Pre-School History

At the Pre-School the focus is on the holistic development of the children to prepare them for the start of formal education in Grade 1.  The children’s emotional, social, physical and intellectual development is encouraged in a loving and nurturing environment.

In 1989, to meet the need for a Pre-School, together with Mr Greg McLeod, headmistress Marianne Lichkus took on the task of building from scratch a pre-school institution.  This opened in 1990 with an initial intake of 50 children and a teaching staff of three.  Today, it has 130 pupils and a staff complement of seven teachers handling classes from grades 000 to grade 0.
