Little Bugs is a small playschool providing high quality care for children aged 2 until 5 years.
We encourage activities that are holistic and develop the whole child.
Parent feedback is valued and we work together with parents to ensure that they are happy with how their child is adjusting and growing.
Hours are 7:00am to 5:30pm.
We have two classrooms which have been set up with various activity areas e.g. fantasy play, manipulatives and a book corner. Both classrooms have a large open area which is used for music, movement and active play.
Our outdoor playground is a safe enclosed area. There is space to run, climb, play in the sand and more. Through our in-house gross motor program we ensure that each child has strong building blocks for core body movement.
Some children can feel intimidated by a large group. As our school is small, the children tend to be less overwhelmed in a more relaxing environment.
We have set up our environment to allow children the chance to explore freely in a well-organized and child-safe space.
We follow a theme based curriculum with an emphasis on play. The teacher presents all lesson plans in both English and Afrikaans.
A small group of children in each class enables the teacher to focus on the individual needs of each child. Our program allows for both structured and free play activities. It also includes development of various skills e.g. visual perception, auditory perception, language, science, music and movement, gross motor, fine motor, creative art, and life skills.

Nutrition is a very important part of our program. We provide breakfast, a morning snack, lunch and an afternoon snack. Our kitchen is focused on healthier options that are low in fat, high in fibre, high in protein, high in minerals and vitamins. Our meals are freshly prepared on a daily basis.
