At Milnerton Pre-Primary we encourage parental involvement and believe in comprehensive communication between the school and our families, thereby building a positive relationship with mutual respect. We do this through weekly teacher letters, our School D6 Communicator and many other publications.

Becoming a preschooler is an important milestone in your little one’s life.
We hope to become a memorable contribution to their precious journey!

Our Story

Milnerton Pre-Primary School was established in 1950 and operated from a room in the Jansen Town Hall. In 1963 Caltex Refinery donated a pre-fab  building to the Municipality for use as a Nursery School. A local Nursery School Association was established. The pre-fab building needed to be replaced and the Milnerton Town council was approached. The Council gave the land for a nominal rental and granted a loan for the building to be built. In 1973, Mrs. A Marais, the mayoress of Milnerton at the time, officially opened the building. The building had three classrooms and a storeroom.  The second phase of the building was done in 1986 where two additional classrooms were a added.

Milnerton Pre-Primary School for children aged 3- 6 years of age is registered with the Western Cape Education Department, Department of Social Development and is an independent Early Childhood Development center. 

The pre-school is an Association not for Gain. Over the years the school has grown substantially with the assistance of community support and is governed by a management committee consisting of the school principal and current parents. 

Due to the progressive expansion of the school environment, Milnerton Pre-Primary School continues to strive by providing a long standing tradition of excellence in education.
