Located at 8A Morris
Street, Woodmead, in Sandton, Wonderland Nursery School was
established 18 years ago, and has become one of the most
sought-after schools in the area for its high standards of care and
Wonderland Nursery School is situated close to Sunninghill, Rivonia,
Bryanston, Morningside and the Sandton CBD. It has become a popular
choice amongst parents in the area for an ethos that takes all the
needs of little ones into account. The fine services on offer have
been extended to other areas through the establishment of their
sister school, Adventures in Wonderland Nursery School, in
Northriding, which provides the same level of expertise.
Wonderland Nursery School was started to fill the need for quality
baby care in the area. Over the years, the original school has grown
into one that is the pride of the community.
At Wonderland Nursery School, children are encouraged to achieve
their full potential. This is achieved in practice with the help of
fully-qualified teachers and their assistants (who are assigned to
every class), who display immeasurable dedication to the school and
all of its children. These educators present the stimulating
syllabus in an environment that is big, colourful, happy, loving and
safe. The staff to student ratio is maintained at a low level to
ensure that every child receives the individual attention he or she
needs within the classroom environment.
Wonderland Nursery School is designed to be a home away from home
for both children and their parents. The school adheres to the
highest standards of hygiene, and all classrooms and equipment are
suitable, age-appropriate and maintained on a regular basis to give
parents peace of mind. Over and above this, the school takes the
extra step in having an in-house Speech Therapist, and the close
association with Occupational Therapists in the area, who are in
on-going contact with the school and visit to consult with parents
once a year. A private nurse visits the school once a month to give
advice and give children their inoculations.
The school arranges educational shows every six weeks, and Annual
School Fun Day and the Annual School Concert - all of which are
long-awaited events throughout the course of the school year.
Wonderland Nursery School also hosts a range of fun events including
a Valentine's Day party, Easter Egg Treasure Hunt with a visit from
the Easter Bunny, Baking Day Goodies, the Holiday Fun Programme, a
visit from Father Christmas and an annual outing. Children are
instilled with a sense of social responsibility from a young age -
the school and parents work together to collect food, clothes and
other goods for underprivileged communities.
Further to their interest of helping small children to develop and
grow, Wonderland Nursery School has a range of extra-mural
activities on offer including Pottery, Karate, Computers, Ballet,
Cricket, Clamber Club, Soccer, Phyzz Ed and Swimming (on the
premises, which takes place twice a year during the summer months,
with a qualified swimming instructor).
Wonderland Nursery School is proud of the sporting and academic
promise shown by its little ones. Some boys from the school have
been selected to represent South Africa at the U.S. Golf Champs,
while others represented South Africa at the Gothia International
Youth Soccer Tournament in Sweden. Over and above this, Wonderland
Nursery School children have been selected to represent Gauteng in
swimming, district cricket and gymnastics. Academically, some
Wonderland past pupils have been elected as prefects in both
government and private schools, as well as a number achieving 'top
of their grade' status during their primary school years, with some
receiving scholarships at top private high schools.
