what will you find at settlers’ park pre-primary school

At our school you will find independent children, who are encouraged to do things for themselves and also to think for themselves. You will encounter children who know how to explore, to question and solve problems, children who help each other and who put things away without being asked.

Everything in our school is designed to allow your child to become independent. You will find that all the materials are child sized and the equipment is laid out in a clear and logical order, on easily accessible shelves and cupboards.

past parents reviews of our school

May 19, 2022

Our experience at Settlers' Park Pre-Primary has been exceptional. The staff are amazing and so dedicated; attention is given to all and they acknowledge and enhance each learner’s individuality. My eldest daughter started her schooling here in 2018 and then my second one a few years later. We then had to immigrate to England and the interest, care and support we received from Settlers' was amazing. I couldn’t have asked for more and there was so much love coming through, especially to help my little girl to adjust to all the changes that lay ahead; it made us feel calm and positive. The school was home away from home for my family and we will always love our memories of Settlers' Park Pre-Primary. You would be making the best move for your child by enrolling them at this wonderful haven of early education.

Tanya Valentine - July 25, 2022

I was lucky enough to be a part of the Settlers' family for eight and a half years. I was appointed the Bees teacher in 2014 and after six years moved to the Crickets for two years. I spent my last months at the school teaching the Caterpillars class. As a staff member, I had an "inside look" at how the school operated on a day-to-day basis. I saw and was part of the love, passion and commitment to the children and their families and we lived our motto "settle on a strong foundation" every day. When my son was born, there was no question as to which pre-school would be best for him. He was on the Fireflies waiting list from his first ultrasound! I am proud to say that Settlers' helped mould my child into the beautiful, empathetic and caring soul that he is today. He has handled our emigration incredibly well and I fully believe that this is due to the fact that he has been taught to verbalise his fears and anxieties both at school and at home. He talks about his friends and teachers at Settlers' most fondly and though we are excited to be living this adventure, Settlers' will always hold a very special place in our hearts.

The Bennett Family - February 01, 2023

We arrived back in South Africa in December 2013 when our daughter was just over 2, I had to start my job in early January and I frantically started trying to find a school to send her to. It was the Christmas holidays and all the schools were closed, which caused some hassles. I rang Settlers’ Park in early January and spoke to Lyn... Read More

Suhayl and Thameera - May 04, 2023

Thank you all so much for the support and love you have shown our family in a time of need. As working parents, we can’t begin to express the gratitude we have for you all. We know our little girl is in safe and caring hands, just like her sister was when she started.

Thank you all once again for your help, support and reassurance. We feel immensely blessed to be a part of the Settler’s family.

Penny Yeats - Feb, 2024

A quick note to thank you for everything you and your staff did for Blessed at Settlers.  Miss Wood  put in lots of effort and I am very grateful for her efforts.  Please pass on my thanks to her.

Blessed has started at Northern Park and I think will have covered a lot of the stuff that they will do this year.  Being at Settlers gives her such an advantage... hopefully she can build on what she has learnt.  We will also be focusing on the areas highlighted in her report that need work.  Thank you for those suggestions.

Mr Mabaso - Feb, 2024

I am writing to express my heartfelt appreciation for the exceptional educational experience that Settlers ‘Park Pre-Primary School has provided to my child, Mhlabawakhe Mabaso. Our journey with Settlers’ Park has been nothing short of remarkable... Read more 

The Mlonzis - Feb, 2024

To each and every one of you – through your hard work, smiles and love, every conversation has made the last 3 years so remarkable. Thank you for being part of our daughter’s foundation. We can boldly say that we are sure “WE SETTLED ON A STRONG FOUNDATION.”

Mr & Dr Zuma - Feb, 2024

It is with sadness that we are leaving the province and the school as today is our last day. Our hearts are so heavy and broken that we leave Settlers’ Park, the school that has groomed our boys.

First it was Uzanomusa who came with so many speech defects and came out so polished. His confidence was at its highest peak.

Today, Sandakahle is leaving. We feel like a part of our lives are taken away as the school has felt like family. Sanda came as a 1-year-old who could not communicate a full sentence. Today he engages in a conversation and stands his ground. His confidence and level of maturity and being able to say “NO, I DONT LIKE THAT” or “STOP IT, I WONT REPEAT MYSELF”, always leave us in owe. The child is so active, loves demonstrating when telling stories, loves exploring and is so observant, always asking if he can help, the school has instilled so many morals and values on top of his home teachings. His memory is that of an independent individual.

We owe our gratitude to all the teachers of the school, your discipline and love for our children is the cherry on top. Your welcoming spirit and friendly attitude will always be the most special feature that sets the school apart from many. In our opinion, this is the best school in this Northern part of the city.

We thank you. Centurion is awaiting, we hope to be good there.

Thank you, thank you.
