Our School

Little People’s Place is a Montessori pre-school in Moreletapark, Pretoria East.

We are a Dual Medium, Afrikaans and English centre and it is our mission to assist your child while growing up, to become the person God intended him/her to be.

At Little People’s Place your child will be seen as an individual. We follow the Montessori philosophy. With us your child will have the opportunity to work with the latest quality Montessori materials. We offer a big variety of equipment to satisfy your child’s individual interests. Through play your child will be able to develop in all the different learning areas while enjoying childhood.

The Owner

I am a mother of two beautiful daughters aged 19 and 21 years. I got involved in pre-school teaching when my eldest was only a couple of months old.

I understand the needs of a mother’s heart when having to leave your precious gem with complete strangers while having to earn an income.

I am a committed and loyal person and dedicate my time to the children and their parents of Little People’s Place. It is very important to me to treat every child with the love and respect they deserve. I believe in discipline and rules within safe boundaries but I also believe that children need their space and freedom to develop as an individual.

The Lord has Blessed me with the opportunity to own a school. It is a privilege and a big responsibility to plant seeds into these little children’s lives and to be able to serve them and to take care of His children.

I completed several courses in baby and toddler care as well as first aid level 1. I have four years’ experience in baby care. I worked with one to three year olds for twelve years and taught three to six year olds for the past couple of years. I competed my International Diploma in Montessori Pedagogy for the Early Childhood Course in 2013.

I am committed to appoint staff members who have experience in childcare and who have the same principals and believes as what I have. I trust that you as parent will have peace of mind while your little one is in the care of the loving and experienced hands of the staff of Little People’s Place, whether you’re home or at work.
