Kinder Ark is a group of three pre-school centres located in and around Paarl.  We have branches in Courtrai, Simondium, and Val de Vie Estate and have been nurturing young hearts in the Boland since 2009.

Our philosophy is to nurture the beauty of individualism as each child has unique needs and capabilities. We are a dynamic group of women who strive to teach children about respect, purpose and love for our Creator who provides for us abundantly.

At Kinder Ark pre-school we aspire to care for and foster each child to become a well balanced young individual with character and strength of mind. 

We aim to create a learning environment where we can discover together.  Children and educators share in each other’s enthusiasm, living everyday with gratitude and joy. We sing, jump and play purposefully. Indoors and outdoors we encourage children to strive towards a healthy body, mind and soul. Through our play-based, child-centred education we teach life’s most valuable principles. With our exceptionally formulated programme we support the development of multiple intelligences promoting a holistic approach to education.

We hope for each child at Kinder Ark to enter the world with plenty of confidence and heaps of appreciation found in the small delights of every new day.

At Kinder Ark Simondium we pride ourselves in creating a loving second home for our little ones. A place where children can learn and develop in a safe environment with care and guidance from dedicated and passionate teachers. Where each and every child is appreciated for their individualism. Teaching a love of learning and exploring while building friendships that will last a lifetime!

It shouldn’t matter how slowly a child learns. As long as we are encouraging them not to stop.
