Welcome to Our World
The Wold Preschool is situated in the leafy suburb of Saxonwold in Johannesburg, South Africa. We offer a safe, nurturing and innovative learning environment.
Where creativity and education meet. Our school consists of an extraordinary team of caring and dedicated individuals. This has enabled us to create a space where learners can explore and actively take part in an immersive learning experience. When learners enter our doors, they are greeted by endless possibilities and opportunities that will enable them to make a success of their future endeavours.

”It is with great pleasure that I welcome you all to the 2020 school year. With all our exciting activities planned, I know that this year will once again be unforgettable. Let us take hands and continue to inspire the minds of our learners, every single day. Let us guide them to see endless possibility.“
A Day at The Wold
Your child greets his friends and settles down with the toys and playground activities until everyone else arrives. The educator observes each child and gets an idea of how each child is feeling on arrival.
Good Morning Ring
The day officially starts at 8:00 a.m. for all learners, with the first structured group period called the “Good Morning Ring”. During this time the children are formally welcomed and they share their news with the rest of the group. The emphasis here is on language skills. The weather and day of the week are also discussed. Group singing and action rhymes also form part of this ring and theme discussions.
All groups have a regular time slot where we structure activities to develop pre-maths, pre-reading and pre-writing skills. Each child is part of a small group working on a task. Each week a new topic is explored using a hands-on approach. Plenty of cutting out, drawing, sorting, matching and discovering is done along with the educator. Parents are encouraged to work on the same topics at home with their child.
For the next hour all the children are able to choose their own activities. This open plan type of system is made to cater for the various physical and emotional needs of all the children at different times of the day. The school is divided into five areas, each catering for an important part of the child’s development.
Monday to Friday | 07:00-17:00
The school has a 48 hour policy for any children who are sick or who have been sent home from school due to being ill. If your child has a fever, virus, infection, rashes, diarrhea or vomiting please keep him/her at home until the symptoms have cleared or until any antibiotics that have been prescribed have been completed.
This policy is in place to prevent any spread of illness to the other children, as well as, to make sure your little ones are feeling 100% on their return back to school.
Thank you in advance for helping make The Wold a happy and healthy environment for all.
