Year Plan

The Crèche is open to all estate residents and visitors of the estate who would like to enrol their children. We cater for babies from 3 months – 5 years.

At Copperleaf Creche we follow the CAPS themes to prepare our students for Grade R.

Apart from their school curriculum the children are always stimulated as they’ll take part in several school events throughout the year. We believe play is key!!

Special dates and events are organised and educational attractions are invited to the Crèche on regular intervals during the year.
