1 to 3 year olds learn through structured and 

unstructured play

Robindale nursery school

Our wonderful classrooms and beautiful playgrounds ensure that 1 to 3 year olds can play to their heart’s content, receiving age appropriate stimulation and developing critical gross and fine motor skills.


We follow the Gauteng Department of Education school roster. Aftercare is available in the afternoons and holiday school is included in the school fees.


The school is closed only on official public holidays and during the holidays at the end of the year during the Christmas season.

Progress reports for older children are handed out every semester, as well as an adaptation report after the first term. Feedback regarding sleep times and meals is communicated to the parents of the babies daily. Occupational and speech therapists are available when necessary.

If you’re ready for more info, we’d love for you to come visit us.

Individualized care

To accommodate working parents, the front gate is open from 07:00.

Arrangements must be made with the staff if you wish to fetch your baby early for a doctor’s appointment or therapy.

Arrival and collection of babies
Parents are requested to personally hand their toddlers over to the staff at the toddler section. Toddlers must be personally collected from the concerned staff member. 


Please sign the aftercare register in the afternoon when you collect your toddler. Please ensure that every parent, grandparent or lift club adult has a security gate access tag. (Security tags are available for sale in the office.)


Lift clubs
The staff must be informed timeously in the event of someone other than the parents coming to collect their toddler.  No toddler will be permitted to go home without the prior written consent of the parent. 



It is important that the school is always able to contact you.  Change of address or telephone numbers should be brought to the attention of the secretary and class teacher immediately.


The school’s communication system can be downloaded at  


The Principal, Mrs Cecile Hattingh is available daily to discuss anything regarding your toddler.
