Programs

At Let Them Grow we offer full-time child care.

For children from birth to 5 years and after school care from Grade 00 to Grade 2.

Our children learn social and emotional skills, explore the collective games and learn language in a fun environment. The group rooms are specially designed for babies, toddlers and school children and provide sleep, rest, play and learn areas.

Let Them Grow is run by experienced and dedicated teachers in a child-friendly way to be prepared for, and promoted to, primary school. The goal is school readiness for English and Afrikaans speaking primary schools. This is achieved by weekly themes and projects that are developed and implemented over an extended period with the kids.

 The journey into the world begins with the little Starfish. The caretaker ratio we provide is at least one caretaker for two children and a nurse on site which monitors the development and physical well-being of the children. We help families with babies from the very first day of the new-borns.

Around 9 to 15 months our babies move into the first of three toddler classes called Seahorses to form close friendships, exercise their gross motor skills, play together and learn from each other. We have specific fun walkways for the first steps.

Once the little Seahorses are safe on their feet, they join the Turtles to play, experiment and learn like only toddlers can. Our shaded playground and weekly themes ensure a fun learning environment.

Once our Turtles are out of the toddler phase, they join the group of Dolphins where they start to develop the skills for big school, including basic skills such as sitting still for a period of time, listening closely to instructions and doing exactly as being instructed. Of course, they also have lots of fun discovering limits and boundaries while running, playing and learning.  

The Whale class is the last step before Pre-Primary and according to the Gauteng Department of Education (CAPs) we get our little one’s school ready.
