Over The Moon Pre-school began with two sisters and a God given vision. Deirdre and Marisia felt led to open a school that would provide a stimulating environment for children and develop their God given potential to the full.
Opening its doors for the first time in 2006, the school started with just 6 registered children. Many late nights was spent behind the computer screen as teachers Deirdre and Marisia, juggled their multi faceted roles: preparing lessons, supervising and caring for staff and administering the school, as well as preparing and following up on accounts. In addition to this a good number of grass plan
Operating as usual
We have started the second term quite a while ago and it has been so so busy, with 4 new kids starting at our school. We have decide on using Wildlife as a theme throughout the course of the Term. the children have so far enjoyed learning about Bears, The Cat family, Elephants, Rhinos's as well as the Big 5 as a whole.
Their artwork looks phenomenal & and i am so proud to watch our school grow bit by bit.
The playground has also slowly but surely started coming together.
We had the mothers day tea last friday morning and the kids certainly did enjoy making necklaces with their mommies & grannies.
All the children are so excited for their next big event, The fathers day building day where each child and their father will make something from ordinary materials and scrap.
We have started providing breakfast & lunches which have been quite convenient for the parents. The children love the variety of breakfasts and lunches they get everyday.
To those of you, reading this, if you know of anyone who is looking for a pre-school for their little one. Over the Moon Pre-school is the place you should be recommending to them.
Thank you and we'll stay in touch soon.
Hello everyone, its been a while since I have posted anything, in between getting a whole new system up and running, Easter, Holiday, the new term staring and Saterday where all our staff had come in from 9-5 to wash and clean every little block & toy in the school.
However, the 2nd term has finally arrived, it feels like the year is moving at such a fast pace already.
Our theme for the 2nd Term is Wildlife & we’ll explore many different animals of the Wild.
We are currently now focusing on Bears, such as: The Brown Bear, Polar Bears, Panda Bears & Koala Bears. Hopefully you all have noticed our Theme/notice board in the centre of the school hall. The children have found it quite fascinating to stare up at the pictures of the bears while we read them the short and sweet facts that are stuck on the board.
Thursday, the 24th of April we are having a teddy bear picnic, we would like it for each child to bring their own teddy bear from home as well as a small little treat e.g. biscuits, chips, sweeties for all of them to share with their friends at the picnic.

All the Over The Moon Pre-school staff members attended a 6 hour workshop on saturday held by Maureen Fell. We all learnt a great deal about one another and grew closer as well as learning so many new things to do to uplift the school. It was such a memorable day and we were able to take go home feeling so positive about the new year and the great adventure that lies ahead of us :)
The school year has barely started and the children have already settled in and learnt so much.
Each week we have a different theme which is taught to the children. In the first week we learnt about 'My school', where we taught the kids about the rules of the school, how to say the name of the school as well as show them the surounding of the school, many activities throughout the week followed through with that theme.
Last week the them was 'I am special', we taught the kids about how everyone is different e.g. hair, eyes & skin colour as well as everyone has different fingerprints. they all found it so interesting to see that the lines on our fingers are all different.
This week the theme was 'My body', when the teachers wald into the classes all you old hear faintly is the sound of a few kids singing 'head, shoulders, knees & toes" it was the cutest thing to see. They made life sized mimics of themselves that took them all week to complete, they dressed them all up today with life sized t-shirts, skirts & shorts made from paper.
