General Requirements

To be effective in the nursery school, both as teachers and as caregivers, an agreement between the school and parents is essential. The following are specific policies governing at Bizweni Pre-Primary and Daycare Centre:

  • Children should have a CLEARLY MARKED school bag.
  • Please supply a spare set of CLEARLY MARKED clothing.
  • Please supply MONTHLY: 1 toilet roll, 1 box of tissues, 1 bar of soap.

Children should dress to play! Children should wear suitable shoes to play and climb in – i.e. takkies or flat sandals – no slippers or high heels. They can come barefoot in summer.

Without prior permission, JEWELLERY, BOOKS, SWEETS AND TOYS may not be brought to school. These things will be taken away by the teacher. Endless heartache is prevented if parents stick to this simple rule.
