Secret Garden Nursery School was opened when childcare was needed for four toddlers in the family. We wanted care for the children that catered for them as individuals, in a family situation. When friends heard about us, they wanted their children to join. “It’s the sort of place you’d want your children to go to.”
The aim of our school is: To provide the type of care children would have from a family member who loves children and at the same time has knowledge and experience in child care and child development.
Since March 2009 Secret Garden has grown into the happy fun filled preschool that it is today. Secret Garden is split into three separate sections. We take babies from 3 months (three months) in our dedicated baby nursery. As they become ready they move to our baby toddler class for children up to 2 years. At 2 to 3 year old’s they move to our toddler section and 3 to 6 year old’s are in the pre-school section.
Emphasis is placed on kindness towards children. Their individual development is nurtured through play and age appropriate structured activities. Groups are small and well supervised by carefully selected staff.
Christianity is our cornerstone. Bible stories are read daily and prayers are said. Christian values are presented in an age appropriate way. Our school is set in a lovely garden on a large double plot property in Vorna Valley. The atmosphere is happy and peaceful as well as lots of fun.
Conrad loves every second of school and he has grown a tremendous amount, always happy with life! I would also like to add that teacher Umbali is worth her weight in gold, even diamonds!!! She and all the staff took a special interest in Conrad and I am never worried about him whilst he is at school. She is excellent with children!!
“The love and care in this school is incredible. Thank you secret garden.”

“Awesome crèche to take your kid to. Good Curriculum and Christian values!!”
“Secret Garden is an awesome crèche...my son loves it and the teachers are always so warm and welcoming.”
“I just want to say thank you so much for everything to the school. We had to remove ---------- from SPEEDY SNAILS class due to home circumstances! But the little big man he has become is beyond, he keeps surprising us with his vocabulary, mannerism etc.! To all the staff at secret gardens, YOU ARE ALL MAGICAL AND THE BEST!”
“Wow my daughter she is only 3 years but she knows the shapes and can even draw them because of your advance and good curriculum. I recommend this school to any one at any day.”
“I highly recommend Secret Gardens. Keep up the good work guys...”

The setting is one that incorporates fun and learning and the staff are truly passionate about what they do. I felt confident that my baby was in safe hands. Thank you to Liz and teacher Petty."
