Welcome to Palmerston Pre-primary!

Welcome to our school, Palmerston was founded in the 80's and is situated on Kendall Road in Deep River. As a well-established school, we are highly passionate about the young people of the future and aim to both educate and nurture these precious young people from the ages of 3 months old to 6 years.
We endeavour to undertake the challenges of collaborative education in our school. It’s a rare privilege to be entrusted with the responsibility of developing and educating the children under our roof and we promise to put forth every effort to meet children’s needs on an emotional, physical, social and intellectual level. Our environment it both challenging and stimulating for the children but also loving and caring.

The Palmerston Creche

The crèche caters for children between the ages of 2 - 3 years old
At our crèche we undertake a wide range of activites to keep the children entertained. We offer weekly programs such as art projects and themed activities for the young ones. The themes run cover a wide range of fun and exciting topics including all wild things, sliding and gliding, creepy crawlies and more. Other activities lined up for the children include teaching them how to cut, count, recognise colours and identify shapes. Through the means of storytelling, music, drumming, fantasy play and playing outside, our children are further stimulated and creatively challenged. Playing with blocks, puzzles and other toys help the children with mental stimulation and learning. This also develops their hand and eye as well as their fine motor skills.
