Grade R

Bright Buttons Pre-School offers a small intimate Grade R class with a maximum of 16 children allowing for more personal attention where children are able to develop at their pace. We believe in hands on learning and therefore most of our lessons are done through kinesthetic learning.

We offer specialist classes such as Drama, Playball, Music, Young Engineers and Science. In this way the children are exposed to a variety of different skills.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I send my child part-time?

Yes! Your child can come part-time, either 2 days or 3 days a week.

Does my child need to be potty trained to attend Bright Buttons?

No. We follow the child and when the child is ready, and together with the parents we will potty-train the child.

Are all your classes small?

Yes we believe in giving children individual attention and that is not possible with big class sizes of 18 to 20 kids so we restrict it between 10 – 14 kids per class, depending on the age group. . We can do so much more with each child when the classes are small and they love all the attention.

Do you offer aftercare until 5pm?

Yes, we do offer aftercare until 5pm.

Are the Aftercare fees included in the school fees?

No, aftercare fees are not included in the school fees.
