Peak Child Nimble

Peak Child caters to children in emerging middle income families living in South Africa, in pre-schools situated close to parents’ places of work.

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

  • Close to your place of work

  • So much more than a creche or daycare centre

Operating Times

Our opening hours are from 6:45am 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

The monthly school fees are payable in advance, by the 5th of the month. Our 2021 fees are R2,200 per month payable for 11 months of the year, from January to November. No school fees are due for December. Our 2022 fees are R2,300 per month payable for 11 months of the year, from January to November.

“My son entered Peak Child at the age of 6 months and has developed so much it puts a cry in my eye! I will be there to support this all the way until it is time for him to leave.”

— Wesley (parent at Peak Child Nimble)
