Our mission is to provide a balanced programme aimed at the attainment of excellence, which lays the foundation for lifelong learning and leadership. As an educator with 17 years’ experience, I am passionate about providing a learning environment which ensures that our boys are appropriately equipped to take on the challenges of an ever-changing world.

Our Ethos

Little Bosch Grade R is a nurturing and playful, yet structured learning environment. Our boys experience a variety of activities that awaken curiosity, stimulate creativity and develop problem-solving abilities. Our spacious building and grounds are well-secured and provide a warm, welcoming atmosphere for our Grade R families.

Laughter, shouts of joy and kindly words abound in the beautifully designed indoor and outdoor areas. This, coupled with a learner centred approach that guides and supports our boys in achieving their full potential, enables them to become true Bosch boys!

Our History

Little Bosch Grade R was established in 2004 by the Headmaster of Rondebosch Boys’ Preparatory School, Tony Ryan, and a team of consultants. With the expert guidance of Meryl Hewitt-Fourie, an ECD specialist, the existing “Kiddywinkles After Care” in Laidlaw Road was converted into a Grade R facility for 75 children. This included accepting girls!
