At Little Hatchlings Playschool, we believe in learning about the world around us through play because play is the language of childhood. We follow an engaging, structured, predictable, daily themed-based program, as routine and predictablilty are most conductive to a child's feelings of comfort and safety wherein he/she can play and explore with confidence and certainty.

The experienced, dedicated teachers are loving but firm, setting predictable boundaries for the children and emphasising respect for each other, respect for one’s self, co-operation and good manners. We adopt a holistic teaching approach, nurturing the ‘whole child’ by encouraging emotional, physical, spiritual, cognitive and social development.

There is a low pupil to teacher ratio, where children are provided with a safe and stimulating educational environment.


Little Hatchlings Playschool has been operating since June 2001 in the leafy suburb of Rynfield, Benoni. We cater for little ones aged app 1.5yrs to 5yrs and we follow Government school terms, operating from 8am-12:30pm Monday to Friday, although children may arrive from 7:45am
