WELCOME

Welcome to Earthkidz Crèche and Youth Centre, the nurturing environment where happy children learn through play and edutainment.

 

Our aim is to create a welcoming, safe and homely environment for all the children in our care.

We cater for everyone - from babies to children in Grade R – providing them with a stimulating environment in which to thrive.

Our Aftercare Centre ensures that parents can leave the stress of homework and studying where they belong … in school.

 

OUR HISTORY 

Previously known as Homestead Nursery School, began out of a garage almost 60 years ago.

It was then moved to where the Homestead Spar is today and then later to the current premises.

In February 2015 we had new ownership and a well needed name change to Earthkidz Crèche & Youth Centre.

We have more than doubled our head count since the new ownership and continue to grow each month.

We currently have 90 crèche children, 40 aftercare and 20 transport kids.

 

OUR CORE VALUES

Christian-based ethics and manners

Holistic development of your child’s body and mind through stimulation, attention and meaningful interaction
