Our School


Who we are

At Waterfall Pre-Primary it is our ultimate aim to nurture and encourage every child in our care to realise his/her full potential. Our teachers and staff are equipped to develop each little person’s confidence, concentration, and age-appropriate life skills; this practical, hands-on approach ensures that children have the freedom to play and to learn in a secure loving environment.

Our independent, co-educational facility educates children from the age of 12 months to Grade 00 and is located in Hillcrest, on a 41-acre campus that is surrounded by breathtaking views and South African indigenous landscape.

Our school is an innovative, bright, joyful, creative modern space where we hear giggles, feel joy and see smiles. We are grateful for our integral connection with Waterfall Preparatory and College as their feeder school and we celebrate our unique eco-campus where our children can thrive and be outdoor and active. Our parents love our ‘Tadpoles’ communication tool, cooked meals, aftercare facility, holiday care programme and our party venue.

Our Christian World View is at the centre of everything we do and is integral to our daily lives, how we care, and the way in which our parents, children and team feel value.

We are a proudly South African school with a strong connection to our local Embo community. Our team is involved in the dynamic iThemba Scholars programme, where two children from Embo are awarded scholarships to attend our school. In 2019 we welcomed our first iThemba Scholars and have since welcomed four more children to Waterfall Pre-Primary School as part of this programme.

Please contact us to say hello and meet our happy family.

 Where we are

Waterfall Pre-Primary is fortunate to be located on the 41-acre iThemba Eco-campus surrounded by breathtaking views and indigenous landscape. The landscaping philosophy of the campus embraces the abundant diversity of indigenous plant species that we have been blessed with in KwaZulu-Natal. We hope to cultivate, for our boys and girls, an appreciation and awareness for the diverse and unique ecosystem around us, both above and below the ground.
