Welcome to Happy Days Nursery

Happy Days is a Nursery School situated in Plumstead, Cape Town and was first established in 1963. We are a Christian school based on the principles taught in the holy bible, namely Proverbs 22.6 “train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it”. 

At Happy Days, we see each and every child as a previous gift from God. Each child is blessed with special talents and unique abilities - we therefore endeavour to provide a suitable environment for our children in which they can strive to reach their full potential. Once your child is enrolled at our school we still see the parent or parents as the primary caregivers and us as the partners that strive to provide the best possible experience for your child when in our care.
Early childhood education is extremely beneficial for young children and one of the fundamental building blocks for their youth. From the moment your child sets foot in our school we expose them to various experiences, social situations and guidance. These experiences will encourage growth and fulfil children so that they may develop physically, emotionally, socially and mentally.

Our Christian values and love for god also inspire the children to grow spiritually under our care.


At Happy Days Nursery School we serve two cooked meals, breakfast and lunch. The menu is displayed on the notice board in the main entrance of the school. We also serve two light refreshments of juice and a sandwich during the mid-morning and mid-afternoon time. Parents are required to send 1 fruit to school each day. Most parents also send snacks for their children of nourishing goodies (no sweets) which the children can eat after sleep time. This is not compulsory, it is entirely up to you.

Happy Days School Outings

School outings are arranged for the Happy Days children approx. 3 times a year for the kids that are older than 3 years of age. Parents will be told about these outings 2 weeks before the outing takes place. Should any additional clothing or equipment be required for this, we will let the parents know.

Happy Days School Hours

Our nursery school starts at 07h30 and concludes at 17h30. Of course we accept earlier morning arrivals from 07h00 and later departures can be arranged until 18h00. During these earlier and later time slots your child will be supervised by our loving and capable domestic staff.
