Who are we?
Oakhill Education is a small, privately owned preschool based in Sandton, Gauteng, opposite Lycee Jules Verne International School, and close to St Stithians College, Redhill, Bryneven, Crawford Benmore, Grayston Prep, and a host of other excellent primary schools.
We are culturally diverse, encouraging children and families to share their unique family experiences, thus building tolerance and acceptance of all nationalities. Friends are made for life, with parents sending their children to Oakhill, as a result of their own experiences at our school.
We encourage experiential learning, using all senses. Examples include tasting all types of food, growing our own vegetables, finger painting, papier mache, sand art, hopscotch, balancing, running in the rain, bringing animals to the school, counting ants, baking & more, you name it, we encourage it.
Learning is best done through play and social interaction, within a structured, secure environment. We believe small groups are most beneficial. Our adult to child ratio is, on average, 1:8, with the baby group being 1:3.
We are open throughout the year, with the exception of a few weeks in December/January. Our hours are 07:00 – 14:00 halfday, or up to 16:30 fullday.
Breakfast, midmorning/afternoon snack and lunch are included in the fees.
With the exception of Grade R, we do not advocate learning on iPads, as we feel there is ample time for exposure to technology at a later stage.
All schools follow similar routines, with flexibility as required.
