Little Elephants Pre-Primary school was founded 8 years ago on the Knysna Primary school premises. On the 1st June 2006 we relocated to "Huis Uitstaan" in Church Street. This old historic building was used as a school, boys hostel and then a safe haven for the under privileged.
This historical building was very run down and the Knysna Primary School Governing Body restored the building for Little Elephants.
We are very privileged and proud to use this building and grounds for our school. We have a sport field, hall and spacious classrooms. Our jungle gym is under a big old oak tree providing shade for our hot summer days. All our "little elephants" can enjoy the facilities.
2007 Goals Accomplished
We created a bilingual Pre Grade R class.
We started our exchanging class program, from the music class, physical education class and modern dance movements. This is a unique program that we can offer because of our qualified staff.
We have 7 staff members, a cleaner and a caretaker.
