Educational Program

Educational Program

We use a private Educational program designed by a Qualified Nursery School Teacher that is aligned with the Department of Education’s CAPS requirements and Elda Foundation Phase guidelines. Our daily program is age appropriate and lessons are presented in both Afrikaans and English.

Our educational program covers the following dimensions of a child’s development:

Cognitive Development (thinking skills)

Social Development (play and work in groups)

Emotional Development (feelings and emotions)

Creative Development (smaller body movements)

Intellectual Development (Understanding and recognise numbers)

With our own Inhouse Psychometrist, we also offer psychometric assessment services to assess school readiness and assessments for school beginners, development assessments, NBI Brain profiling for kids and adults as well as Sensory Intelligence assessments on demand and at an extra cost.

What Our Families are Saying

I am a happy parent, within few months of my child attending at Grace Daycare and Aftercare Alberton I saw great progress in him. The teachers are amazing and they really do care about our kids, they treat them like their own.
Great daycare and aftercare. My child spent her time here from 2017 to 2021. She learnt all her foundation skills and made friends easily with the other children. Great teachers and staff and rates are very reasonable. I highly recommend.
The best decision I ever made as a parent was to start my kids at this daycare. My 1st was at her happy place here and her little sister is also having the best time and love loves her daycare. A wonderful environment to watch kids flourish.
