Pre-Schools

Future Nation Pre-Schools, based at our Fleurhof and Lyndhurst campuses, provide high-quality Early Childhood Development (ECD) for children from 18 months to Grade R.

Our Approach

Here at Future Nation Schools, we believe that all children are born competent, naturally curious, resourceful and creative, our learning spaces foster an early learning approach that places your child at the centre of learning in a safe and nurturing environment. Because we appreciate and embrace the fact that every child is different, we don’t see your child as an empty vessel that needs to be filled with facts, figures and dates. Instead, by applying our innovative Project-Based Learning (PBL) teaching approach to traditional Montesorri-based education, we invite our pre-schoolers to explore their environment and express themselves, with a particular focus on gross motor development, fine motor development, social awareness, communication, spatial awareness and arts.

Our learning-rich environment isn’t confined to the classroom. Through our outdoor play areas, we help our pre-schoolers extend their physical prowess and develop body confidence through a variety of age-appropriate climbing equipment and sensory provoking spaces that support their physical development.

We take special care to limit the number of children within each class in order to allow for an environment conducive to your child’s learning. Our teachers also have assistants to ensure that each child receives the necessary care and attention.
