Establishing a bastion of education

our beginnings

In 1996, our pre-primary commenced, starting as one of the first 6 schools belonging to the Smiley Kids franchise. Between 1996 and 2015 our Pre-Primary become a bastion in Early Childhood Education in the Centurion area.

We are one of a very select few  Pre-Primary’s operating for such as long time and under the same management, since constitution. During our Smiley Kids years, we were consistently recognised with their highest awards of excellence as a Diamond School.

Between 2012 and 2013 the parents of our Pre-Primary urged us to expand into the field of general education. In 2014 our Primary School, Jacaranda College its doors in January and has subsequently become Jacaranda International.

In 2014 we resigned as a member of the Smiley Kids Association and changed our name to Jacaranda Pre-Primary, for the sake of brand synergy.

A history of excellence

We have continued to build on the excellence of our Smiley Kids years between 2014 and today.

We have adopted a formal, structured, play-based, and caring curriculum and development program, aligned with the Early Childhood and Development programs offered in Finland, New Zealand, and Singapore. We were one of the first school’s to adopt such as focused approach to research based education in the early years in South Africa. 

Our Pre-Primary educators are highly proficient not only as ECD practitioners but also as teachers using integrated technologies to enhance learning and development during the very early years.
