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.”

We are pleased to report that 7 children from our own family have passed through or are currently attending Secret Garden. These include 2 of our own boys and 5 grandchildren.

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 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.
