David Davidson

David Davidson is a privately run English pre-primary school situated on the same campus as our feeder school, Brebner Primary. Having been established in 1967, it has a long and proud history.

The school accommodates 94 learners in three classes. Children are accepted from the age of 4-6 years. It has one grade 00 class and two grade R classes, each with a qualified teacher and an experienced assistant.

Every child is seen as an individual and the school’s main aim is to give each child the opportunity to become the best that they can be, both emotionally and intellectually. We provide a good foundation and expose our children to stimulating and challenging encounters. The teachers work towards school readiness as required by the Department of Education. Our syllabus is set around interesting & stimulating themes and our children are frequently taken that support and enrich these themes.

Our mission is to have all our learners reach optimal development enabling them to cope well in Grade 1.

We are fortunate to have a well-established library with well over a thousand books. Children are given books once a week to take home and when these are returned they receive new ones.

For those children coming from non-English speaking backgrounds, we offer English Enrichment classes in groups of no more than 6 per group.

We offer an Aftercare facility, whereby children can be collected until 17h00.The teacher running this facility has been with David Davidson for many years.

Parents are encouraged to join our Parents & Teachers Association. The main purpose of this committee is fund raising. Various functions and projects are held throughout the year and it is satisfying to have parents assisting.

We are proud of our school and feel confident that every child spends a happy and productive morning with us and is given the opportunity to develop to his full potential.
