Progressive. Holistic. Inspired.

As Bryanston Pre-Primary, we’ve helped shape confident, caring children since 1963. Now, over 50 years later, we’re proud of our rich history but feel it’s time to reposition ourselves to meet the changing requirements of young South African children and their parents.

Why Cleverdon? It’s the maiden name of our owner, Debra Wallace, and we think it sums up the spirit of the bright pupils and teachers at our very nurturing school. We chose the aqua-coloured elephant in our new logo for its qualities of heritage, wisdom and playfulness. After all, play is one of the most important ways that children learn as they develop into happy and confident adults.

Cleverdon Preschool is set in leafy, established grounds on a large property in the heart of Bryanston, with real grass and big shade-giving trees. With our rich past, we’re keeping our eyes firmly on the future by continuously addressing educational trends and using innovation to prepare your children for what lies ahead.

We’re a school where every staff member knows the name of every child, and we treat each one as an individual. We help children develop holistically in terms of their physical, cognitive and emotional wellbeing and we believe in nurturing their inherent creativity. Ultimately, we aim to build a strong foundation so that children leave us feeling good about themselves and about their place in the big wide world.

We’ve been working hard at our beautiful new website and would love you to take a look at
