    AMAZING FACILITY

    11-02-2019 by Megan-Lee Sims

    My daughters have only been at St Francis for a week and already I can pick up that they have learnt so much in such a short period of time. The reception is amazing, the open door policy is fantastic and the teachers are angels. Geraldine has accommodated and been so understanding. This school has heart!!!!!! I will brag about St Francis to everyone I know.

    Answer from St. Francis Educare Centre on 14-02-2019:
    That's so sweet, thanks Megan-Lee. LOL, Wish you could see the picture of the two the first day, baby sitting on big sis lap both cryyyying.... Well now big sis gets up and firmly take baby sis by the hand back to her class - because big sis now have big sis tasks to do and very keen on learning! Baby sis is settling in daily and even if the lips are still pulling, she joins her peers with no much objection anymore!

    My son loves it

    17-01-2019 by Staci

    I have a 3 year old son that has been attending St Francis since the age of 5 month old. I have no issues with the creche and my son that will be 3 this year loves it there.. The teachers are loving and friendly and qualified. They are secure and the kids are safe during the day.. What I love most is that they open at 6:00am and close at 6pm and if u need your kid ti stay a lil later in the odd day you can make arrangements. It's the longest standing Crèche in strandfontein and all kids are welcome and looked after.

    Answer from St. Francis Educare Centre on 14-02-2019:
    Hi Staci On behalf of all staff especially those in baby group, thank you very much for such warm affirmation. Hope granny would not mind, but no matter how much I correct in saying: " aunty Geraldine", I am also "MAMMA" !

    My daughter has been a student of swimlab swimming school going on 2 years now. Since she has started lessons with Tanya, she has only but grown in confidence and her ability as a swimmer. Her Instructor Tanya Tyndale-Biscoe (known as Dory) is an amazing individual inside and out of the water. She is incredibly gifted when it comes to teaching children as well as adults. All her students love her and my daughter in particular looks forward to her weekly swimmimg lesson with anticipation and it is all due to her teacher, her mentor who is Dory She is excellent at keeping parents informed of their childrens progress and the only swimming instructor I have come across where she makes every child she teaches, regardless their age, comfortable in the pool and their surroundings. I highly recommend her and Swimlab to anybody, her work ethic and ability to work with people is of an extremely high quality.

    Violin lessons

    04-03-2016 by Isabel

    We just came for a three month stay to Southafrica but didn't want to stop the violin lessons for our 7year old daughter. Music teachers were very helpful and flexible with everything although it isn't very easy to have a student for such a short period, but everything went very well and was professionally managed. Therefore, I can highly recommend Musicteachers-Capetown.
