Welcome to
Building Blocks

Building Blocks Pre-primary School is a fully independent preparatory school managed by Curro Holdings. We are registered with the Department of Health, Social Development and the Gauteng Department of Education (GDE). 

Our aim is to create an environment of excellence and to be aware of international trends. We want to give each learner the very best opportunities possible in order to develop fully in all areas. We do all that is possible to carefully plan an environment where the learners are able to develop and so realise their full potential. 

An atmosphere is created that encourages responsibility, self-discipline, and a positive self-image. Thus meaning that the focus is on academic, emotional, physical and spiritual development of the learner. 

To meet these aims, enthusiastic, passionate well-trained staff look after small groups of learners. Our main aim is to develop the learner holistically, in and outside the classroom. We believe that a balanced education with enough cultural and sporting activities develops the child to their full potential. 

All our staff are CPR-trained and have Level 2 first aid.
