Description

In May 2019 Little Star Educare Centre has been faithfully serving the community of Amanzimtoti for 25 years! The ethos of Little Star is always to create a loving, stimulating and safe environment for all children.

Little Star caters for children ranging in age from 18 months to 6 years (we are Grade R registered), and is open all-year round except on public holidays and the three weeks over Christmas and New Year. We operate from Monday to Friday, 07:00 – 17:30. There is an Early-Bird Service from 06:45. We provide breakfast and lunch and two snacks. There is a nap time. Little Star is situated on a huge property which is fully fenced and secure, and has two grassed playgrounds.

We always welcome visitors. If you would like to make an appointment to see me, the Principal, Anne King, please feel free to do.

OPENING AND CLOSING TIMES

Little Star opens at 07:00 and closes at 17:30 sharp. There is also an Early-Bird service that is available from 06:45 each morning for which a nominal fee is levied. Little Star is open all year (during the school holidays) except for public holidays and for three weeks over the Christmas period.

EXTRA-MURAL ACTIVITIES

Little Star offers a variety of extra-mural activities, including: Music – This activity is run by Aunty Liz who is a professional music teacher. The children learn about musical instruments, play musical games and learn new songs. Two concerts are performed every year: a Spring Concert and a Christmas Concert.

The children in Yellow Group also do a presentation at their Graduation Ceremony. Fees for music are included in the Centre fees.

Little Star also offers swimming classes, computer classes, ballet and ‘Catrobat-kidz’.

Fees for these activities are levied by the service provider, independently of monthly Centre fees.

Children in Grade R visit the Amanzimtoti library once a week – usually on a Thursday.
