We offer tailor-made learning opportunities to stimulate young, curious minds.

At Pinocchio Crèche our children are encouraged to develop and expand their appreciation and understanding of themselves, of others and of the world around them. Children learn by interacting with their environment, and we subscribe to the philosophy that children learn best through play. Therefore, we at Pinocchio Crèche have created an environment that encouragessuch interaction and play. Our crèche is a carefully designed playground of indoor and outdoor activities with which our childrenget to interact.

Our goal is simply to help each child develop to their full potential in all seven of the major developmental areas: mental, spiritual, cognitive, emotional, social, creative and physical. Amongst the skills and values that our children learn through our speciallydesigned activities are social skills, a good sense of self-esteem, problem solving skills, creativity and a spiritual foundation.

Pinocchio Crèche is a project branch of the Domestic Workers’ Association Educational Trust, a non-profit organisation run by Ms Helen Shongwe and a team of committed caregivers.
