ABOUT US

OUR HISTORY

Little Village Christian Nursery School was started by Laurine Wagner at 304 Badenhorst St. Wierda Park in 1987. We are a culturally diverse school catering to the needs of our community.

Under the loving attention and gentle Christian guidance of our Principal, Ann Currie and our teachers and assistants, children of Little Village enjoy a busy day at school, benefiting from the well-equipped classes, fun playgrounds, extra- murals and other interesting activities.

Our children receive a comprehensive pre-school education that enables them to move to Grade R in Primary School with confidence.

  • Social Responsability

    Little Village Christian Nursery School exists to provide a safe, developmentally appropriate environment for preschool aged children

    The aim of Little Village Christian Nursery School is to make our preschool accessible to, and inclusive of, all children and families from all sectors of the local community through open and fair practices.

  • Mission Statement

    Our focus is to provide the child with an excellent and stimulating early care and education experience, which promotes the child’s social, emotional, physical and cognitive development.

    Our goal is to ensure that the child’s mind is opened up to ensure their life-long learning.

  • Our Philosophy

    At Little Village Christian Nursery School we aim to create an environment that opens the door to the fun and joy of learning new things, sets the stage for young minds to feel comfortable asking why, how, what if and more. When their questions are praised, not brushed aside, children are encouraged and feel confident to keep delving into what they want to know.

    An environment with the child's best interest at hearts will promote excellence in social, emotional, physical and cognitive development. Our goal is to ensure that the child’s mind is opened up to ensure their life-long learning.
