Carnival Kids Private Preschool


Carnival Kids Private Preschool in Secunda, offers balanced educational programs and a curriculum specially selected to suit your child’s fine and gross motor skills development. We create environmentally stimulating and enriching activities, with the benefit of the largest jungle gym in Africa for extramural fun.


About us

We believe that each child should be provided with stimulating and age-appropriate activities in a safe, nurturing and caring environment. We place a strong emphasis on learning and development through play; acknowledging individual skills and abilities. We aim to foster meaningful relationships that will encourage a spirit of empathy and understanding and to encourage a sense of wonder and respect of our world.

We listen to a child’s voice.

  • Children inspire us to aspire to greater heights. We believe in respecting the rights of every child and to celebrate each one’s success. Our purpose each day is to be creative, instil a love of life, a love for others, and a love of learning.

We are highly experienced and educated professionals.

  • We provide a learning program that is grounded in years of experience. Each classroom has a teacher and an assistant at all times. Safety is one of our primary concerns; therefore all the staff are First Aid qualified.

We care about early childhood development.

  • At Carnival Kids, we don’t just educate children, but we take a sincere interest in their learning and encourage each child to reach his/her full potential. We invest ourselves in every child with whom we work.

How we go about education

At Carnival Kids Private Preschool we make use of Day by Day Early Childhood Development (ECD) for age groups 18 months to 4 years, which is an Outcome-Based Educational (OBE) curriculum.

The Grade R (age group 5 to 6) have a school readiness program based on the Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS) designed to confidently meet all the CAPS requirements listed by the Department of Basic Education.

The OBE and CAPS Curricula focuses on:

  • Language Skills
  • Mathematics
  • Life Skills
  • Science Motor Skills
  • Gross Motor Skills
  • Fine Motor Skills
  • Music and Movement
  • Arts and Crafts

The aim is to turn a mountain of information into practical, easily understood, daily lesson plans which will benefit and entice the child’s interest. At the end of each term, an assessment is done, and report cards are provided.

We want to know our parents

We believe in getting to know our parents – the children and their families. We encourage parental involvement. We, therefore, have an open-door policy and help parents of pupils to feel free to come and discuss their child at any time.
