My Little Play School is a home-based educare that has been on the go since early 2018. We provide loving care and educational development for our kids, always being mindful that they learn best through play in a safe space.
My Little Play School is run by qualified teachers. We are a mother-daughter team, Melaney and Ester, who are dedicated to growing young minds in a warm- hearted environment. We have been Capri residents since 2003 and pleased to be able to run an educare in such a connected community.
Melaney (Founder, Teacher)
Teaching young kids has always been a career goal of mine. The fact that I am laying the foundation for their educational development is incredibly fulfilling, and it’s a bonus that I get to interact and enjoy their unique little personalities. In 2013 I had the privilege of being the Au- Pair to two kids under the age of 5 in the Netherlands – what an amazing experience!
I loved every moment of it and it confirmed what I already knew all along – early childhood development is my calling in life. I returned to South Africa end of 2013 , enrolling for my Early Childhood Development (0 to 5 years) certification.
I am proud to have obtained my N6 and enjoy implementing it at My Little Play School with our weekly themes and lesson plans. Joining me at My Little Play School is Ester, a qualified primary school teacher now enjoying the adventure of caring for younger ones. Ester is also my loving mother and grandmother to my little niece and nephew.
My Little Play School aims to develop all areas of development - emotionally, physically, socially and intellectually. Ester and I encourage the kids to play as much as possible by creating fun new experiences because this is the best way to learn. Each child is unique, and we will always try our best to provide your child with the age appropriate stimulation, ensuring that they meet their milestones when the time is right.
We strongly believe that the holistic development of the child can only happen in an environment that a child can feel safe, loved and cared for, while being encouraged to always try and do their best. This is what you will find at My Little Play School. Please feel free to contact me after hours if you have any questions, I look forward to hearing from you.
