About Us

Our teachers are loving, caring and passionate about teaching from a Biblical worldview, making Jesus the centre of everything we do and incorporating Him in all our activities.

We place a high emphasis on building Godly character in our learners. Compassion, selflessness, humility and integrity are fostered in our learners as well as the fruit of the Holy Spirit.

We strive for academic excellence and believe in stretching our learners to go beyond the minimum to reach their full potential.

Our Pre-School. Our Family. Our Community

Our children are taught in a fun, friendly and Christian environment. We place a high emphasis on academics and preparation for school. Parents can feel secure – our teachers care for our little ones like they would their own. Our aim is to connect school with home and to partner in the holistic development of our little ones. 


The Willow Ark follows the CAPS curriculum supported by A Beka Christian curiculum. We carefully selected this curriculum for its high standard of education, its colourful and bright workbooks, the excellent results that children show and the happy and enjoyable experience it provides. Play. We fully understand that children learn through play at this stage and encourage indoor and outdoor play for an extended period each day.
