It was a big day for the entire village community of Sir Lowry’s Pass Village when “Ons Speelnessie”, the old kindergarten, experienced a glamorous reopening on 12 March 2004 after years of decay. After extensive enlargements, the building can now accommodate 140 girls and boys between the ages of 2 and 5 who spend probably the most carefree time of their lives under the roof of Hope and Light.
Qualified educators lead the little ones in playing, in close accordance with the curricula of the Ministry of Education. The aim is to arouse their curiosity for the unknown and the new, to introduce them to everyday hygiene and to impart assertiveness in dealing with their playmates. The children are then well prepared for the transition to our preschool classes.
