Peak Child Melville

Our vision is to provide quality, affordable, private, early learning in a high-care environment. 

What's Included

  • A safe and loving environment

  • Qualified teachers

  • Full day, all year round except December holidays

  • From 3 months to 5 years of age

  • 2 cooked meals a day

  • So much more than a creche or daycare centre

Operating Times

​Our opening hours are from 7:00am to 5:30pm, Monday to Friday. 

The school only closes during the December school holidays, with the last day of school being around 15th December each year. We open again around the 10th January. Please confirm the exact dates with the school principal.

​Our schools will be closed on a Monday if there is a Public Holiday on a Tuesday, and on a Friday if there is a Public Holiday on a Thursday. This enables us to deep clean the school and to perform maintenance while the children are not present.

School Fees

This Peak Child pre-school caters only to the residents of the Stay Melville residential complex. 


The monthly school fees for such children are payable in advance, by the 1st of the month. Our 2024 fees are R2,600 per month payable for 11 months of the year, from January to November. No school fees are due for December.


​There is a 10% discount if you have more than one child at the school. There is also a discount if fees are paid termly in advance. A refundable enrolment deposit of R500 is required to secure your child’s place.

“Sim is doing amazingly and the teachers you have are absolutely stunning. My son has learnt so much and loves going to school with no issues. I really thought I should let you know what an amazing job they are doing and we are beyond happy with our decision. It’s truly mind-easing knowing that our son is happy while we are at work.”
