About Us

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all who are viewing this website.  

Let me introduce myself. I am Karin Grunwald the principal/teacher of Kiddies Place which is a Christian Nursery School at 287 Frandaph Drive Mondeor (close to the Mondeor Dischem). Kiddies Place can also be found directly opposite the Recreational Centre and Mondeor Football Club (which is across the River from us).

We started in 1989. Thus for over 29 years I have been blessed and privileged by doing what I love most and that is taking care of PRECIOUS children. For me being a teacher is a dream come true as every child is unique and special in their own way.  I take seriously the precious little lives which are entrusted into my care.

We are hard working, dedicated and conscientious. We display a deep sense of responsibility in meeting the needs of our children. For this reason we continue to maintain an excellent reputation in a clean safe and homely environment with lots of indoor and outdoor equipment and we are well known for our extremely high standard of education.  

I am pleased to announce that children who do Grade R at Kiddies Place will also do well at any other school in Grade 1. It is a known fact as parents report back to us success story after success story. All the wonderful testimonies from so many happy parents over the years have warmed my heart and filled me with joy.  

Having happy parents and happy children is a rewarding job indeed. All this is due to our passion to teach and our deep love for children which then results in our TOP ACHIEVEMENTS being attained.

We offer the following extra mural activities which are optional but will help your child to develop to be best to his or her potential.

  • Swimming with a qualified teacher
  • Soccer
  • Computer
  • Musical Mickey Mouse
  • Active Kidz

Food Menu

Parents are responsible to pack lunch and Liqui Fruit. We have three microwave ovens at Kiddies Place. When you cook supper at home and find you have extra food left over, you can give it to your child for school lunch and your child will have a warm lunch especially nice in the winter months. I will treat the children with desserts however; our rule is that they can only have it after they have finished the lunch which you have packed for them. Kindly label your child’s lunch box please.

We serve breakfast and dessert every day.

We only close for public holidays and we close the first week of December. We re-open AROUND the same week as government schools.

We take children from 18 months to 6 years old. For children in nappies/diapers parents are to provide wet wipes, bum cream, nappies and sented packets to dispose of dirty nappies/diapers.

We specialize in teaching grade R's and we teach CAPS. We also give extra classes for an hour to all our Grade R’s - one teacher per child to tend to their individual needs

We have small classes so that individual attention can be given.
