mini-minors educare - Queenstown

New things to discover, new things to explore - excitement, outings, special occasions - and much, much more! New friends, new understandings, new activities too - all these are, but a few!

We look forward to our busy, exciting time ahead

Filled with countless learning experiences, fun, laughter, music and art - and of course, quite a few centimeters added to the growth chart!

mini-minors educare is an English/Afrikaans medium Christian school, catering for little ones from 18 months - 5 years of age. 

Half day or full day options available, as per Eastern Cape school terms.   

We strive to harness the potential in each and every one of our little minors in a safe, fun, loving and caring environment and follow a themed based curriculum, with many educational outings, as well as visitors to our school, to coincide with our weekly themes.

Our mascot is Jerry Giraffe and he plays a huge role in the everyday lives of our little minors.

Towards the end of every year, we entertain our parents with a vibrant annual concert, as well as a Grandparents’ Day for all the special grannies and grandpas in our little minors’ lives.

We have four age groups:


18months - 2 ½ years


2 ½ - 3 ½ years


3 ½ - 4 ½ years


4 ½ - 5 ½ years

Our very capable staff are dedicated and nurturing, totally committed to the well-being of all the little minors in our care.

Singing, music and movement, as well as art activities, are covered several times a week, as is the introduction of basic musical instruments.

We, at mini-minors educare, are great believers in free and outdoor play.  The importance of play is vital for a child’s healthy development.  Play promotes cognitive, physical, social and emotional well-being, all the necessary conditions for thriving and learning.  

Through play a child can experiment, solve problems, think creatively, cooperate with others and gain not only a deeper knowledge of the world around him or her, but also about him or herself, ultimately building positive self-esteem and confidence.

We have Baker’s Day every Wednesday, as well as Fruit Day on Mondays and Show and Tell on the last Friday of every month.

On Tuesdays our girls have ballet (Tutu-Tuesday) and our boys, balls skills (Games with Uncle Garth). We end off our busy weeks with Phys-Ed Friday for all our little minors.  These activities are part of our curriculum and included in the school fees.

Other extra-murals available are Playball ~ Monkeynastix ~ Swimnastix ~ Stimu-Zone.

We, at mini-minors, have our own special piggy, known as Hungry Piggy.  He is “fed” every Friday and at the end of each term, we empty the contents of his tummy to donate to the elderly, those in need and animal shelters.  This, we feel, is so important, as it teaches the little minors, from an early age, to not only give gladly, but also to learn about those less fortunate.
