Due to the new COVID-19 regulations we are only allowed limited children per class. Please make contact with our admin department urgently to confirm the return of your child(ren). Kind regards.


A few spots are still available for the rest of 2020. YES we are open and YES we do comply with all COVID-19 health regulations as prescribed.


Breaking news: As per court ruling we are allowed to open.

All COVID-19 safety measures are in place as per guidelines provided by Department of Social Development, the Department of Basic Education and the Department of Health. Our inspections were completed and permission was granted to open last week.

All parents must immediately make contact with our Admin Department to confirm whether your child(ren) will be returning. We will only be taking in limited amount of children per classroom and will be subject to qualifying criteria to comply with social distancing regulations and health regulations.

Safety of all children, teachers and parents remains our first priority.

Regards, The Principal

[06/12/20]   Dear Parents.

We trust everybody is healthy and safe.

We are sure all parents are aware of the current status when it comes to the re-opening of schools and ECD centers nationally and the phased in approach we have to comply with to minimize risks and all relevant regulations as prescribed by the Department Of Health.

Eden Pre-Primary have applied today to all relevant departments to grant permission to open as soon as possible with a phased in approach to accommodate our working parents and continue with the very important tasks of getting our GR R learners school ready for the 2021 education year.

We have submitted a risk adjusted strategy/approach to gradually allowing our different age groups back.

Please note that we will only allow limited amount of learners per classroom back so that we can comply and control the social distancing regulations. This will be applicable for the rest of the 2020 education year.

Due to restricted number of children that will be allowed back, we would like to urge every parent to make contact with the Admin Department on 044-8730712 or via email [email protected] and indicate their return.

Strict screening and hygiene solutions will be put in place for every child, teacher and parent to comply with when entering the premises. We will update on the protocols closer to the re-opening of the center. Safety is still our number one and main priority.

We would like to thank all parents for collecting their children's work packs every week and their continued commitment towards their children ensuring that they receive the necessary work for their ongoing personal development. This will be available every week as per sms notifications being send out every Monday to all parents.

We would also like to thank all parents for their commitment and continued payments of 60% school fees (as implemented for the lock down period) towards Eden Pre-Primary.

Will update in the near future as soon as we receive a positive outcome with the opening dates.

Kind Regards
