Our nursery is a most wonderful place. Yes, it is loud at times, but who can not love the laughter, happiness and joy of toddlers and young kids cheering at the top of their lungs for their friends in the games we play and fun we have. If it is ever quiet?! Sure, we have nap time too!
We do not believe in open days, every day is open day for us, so if you are interested in joining us, come past and we show you around.
Let Them Grow School Calendar We follow the government school holiday calendar in December and January and will be closed during the specified dates. We don’t close any other time except public holidays, and we make provision for two long weekends per year to do maintenance and for staff to enjoy a well deserved break.
School Starting Times
- Gates open at 06h15
- Gates close at 17:30 in the afternoon
- Overtime will be levied for every 15 minutes after 17:30 in the afternoon and an additional amount is payable for every 15 minutes after 18:00.
Our children do not have TV-knees; they love the outdoors and learn through playing. Messy play, walking barefoot on the grass and playing in the sandpit all develops their skills and enhances intelligence.

There are nine 20 minute classes per term. Extra murals commence at 08h30 every day. Usually there are 4 lessons per month, if however there is a 5 week month, the fifth lesson will be free, but if a public holiday falls on the day of your child’s lesson, no credit will be given as the public holiday and the fifth lessons counterbalance each other. Some activities are weather permitting but we do guarantee 9 lessons per term.

Children’s Clothing Requirements
Please send your child to school in practical, comfortable clothing that will in no way inhibit his/her development. Children learn through their senses and by experimenting in their environment. Please allow your children to play and learn freely without being overly concerned about dirt or damage.
- Please send a spare change of clothing to school in your child’s bag each day
- Please include a jersey for cooler weather.
- Hats are compulsory in summer.
- All clothing should be clearly marked with your child’s name.
The Sick Child
If your little one is not feeling well, has a bad cold or was sick the previous night, he should not attend school and preferably be kept at home until he is feeling better. However Let Them Grow offers a quarantine service where we take care of the child with gentle activities or bed rest.
