Junglecubs Pre-School is the perfect home away from home. Here learners are taught in a creative, expressive environment. Giggles, hugs and learning are the order of the day. Our dynamic team understands that leadership starts in the sandpit at preschool. Junglecubs is undoubtedly the best choice for your child.
Junglecubs prides itself on the excellent Maternal Care taken in the Nursery. Our nursery teacher and her two assistants have vast experience and endless patience. Our nursery is a happy, warm environment where babies are carefully monitored. We do not believe in allowing babies to cry. Additional staff is available to lend a helping hand. Preservative free, home cooked meals are offered. The nursery is monitored by CCTV cameras. We maintain a ratio of one staff member for every five babies. We recommend that parents plan ahead and pre book when mom is pregnant as there is a great demand due to our high standards and reputation for care.
Our toddler group is a happy and cheerful group. It is wonderful to watch the eagerness of our young learners as they busily interact with all their friends. The toddlers receive a preservative free home cooked diet with plenty of fresh fruit. The toddler group thoroughly enjoys their art and creative activities. Music and rhymes are all time favourites. The toddlers have a separate playground with a state of the art jungle gym. Classrooms are monitored by CCTV cameras. We recommend parents pre book as there is a great demand for our toddler programme.
The programme is guided by the director Sarah Tryon and the Educational Principal Lariaan Claassens, who holds an Honours Degree in Special Needs Education. The focus of our curriculum is to create a secure environment where children learn through play and where each child’s happiness is of the essence. Children who experience barriers to learning are carefully monitored under the guidance of an occupational therapist. Extensive research into reading approaches and mathematical development aides towards the setting of the programme.
An aftercare facility is available to learners from Hamptons Primary School. Home cooked, preservative free diet with plenty of fresh fruit is provided. Our exciting holiday programmes with many interesting activities ensure that learners look forward to attending Junglecubs even during the holidays. Monthly Fees include a holiday programme. Aftercare children are not charged an extra fee in the holidays. Aftercare fees- 2019-R990 per month (12 months ) 2020-R1166 per month (11 months)
Junglecubs works closely with all primary schools in the area. Our excellent reputation for school readiness is evident by the easy transition to grade one. The school ensure that the children are adequately prepared for any school of their choice by following the CAPS document provided by the Education Department. As this is the guideline prescribed for Primary Education, there is no doubt that our little ones will become confident learners in Grade One. The programme was designed by Carol Meyer who has a degree in Education and a post Grad in Foundation Phase Education.
What Parents say
As a former educator and a parent, I can tell you that I am so please with Junglecubs Preschool. I am truly delighted with how my children are embraced, nurtured and supported by the staff and the teachers. I am incredibly impressed with how my children’s leadership skills have been developed from a young age. My children are excited to go to school and learn new things every day. I could think of no better place to give my children a head start in life.

There are so many positive things to say about Junglecubs Preschool and the staff. My child is happy and she loves to go to school. There is nothing more delightful than having a child who loves to learn and comes home to talk about it. Casey and Annie encourage all the different personalities and adapts to support each child. They are friendly and attend to matters with a smile. They keep me informed through a parent communication book. They have an onsite kitchen and make fresh, healthy meals for the kids. I am very impressed!
On my very first visit to Junglecubs Preschool, our children felt so welcomed and comfortable that they wanted to start attending that very day! We love the environment at Junglecubs and are so pleased with the extra mural activities offered which include Soccerstarz, Kids Coding Academy, Ballet and Hip-Hop. It’s great to see our children enjoy learning in so many different ways.
My daughter has been attending Junglecubs since she had been 3 months old and I have to say that it is the best place to send your child! Charne and Brenda have done a marvelous job with her and I have seen her bloom under their care. The best thing about this facility is that whenever I walk in at any time, it is really clean and tidy.
It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial for Junglecubs Preschool. Both my son and my daughter attend the school and so say that they enjoy their time there would be an understatement. They have absolutely thrived in this environment. Michele, Sunitha and their wonderful staff make each and every child feel special and unique whilst providing them with the special and academic skills needed as they make the transition from pre-school to “Big School”. This is exactly what I as a parent want for my children. The genuine affection and concern that the staff show the children at the school truly makes Junglecubs a child’s “home away from home”. I know it is rare to find a pre-school with all these outstanding qualities which is why I cannot recommend Junglecubs enough to friends, family and anyone who wants a wonderful caring and nurturing learning environment for their child.
We have many extra murals activities that are available to our learners. We have Ballet, Hip Hop, Monkeynastix, Karate, Soccerstarz, Busyballers, Drama and a new exciting programme that we have started this year Kids Coding.
At Kids Coding Academy we aim to equip children with the skills they need to apapt to an ever-changing world. It has been proven that for children all over the world learning to code will be as important as ABC’s and 123s.
Our mission is to help the next generation realise their fill creative potential in the world of rapidly increasing technological progress. For more information please have a look at our video at www.kidscoding.co.za.
