LRPS Group was founded in 2007.

We are an independent private school registered with the Department of Education and the Department of Social Development.

We accommodate children from the age of 3 months to Grade R.  We now own 9 Pre-School branches, including Emberton Pre-School and 1 Primary School throughout KZN.

Our Mission is to ensure children reach their full potential.

We provide dynamic programs in which children from diverse backgrounds can develop early learning skills in a supportive and nurturing environment.


Our approach emphasizes curiosity, creativity and hands-on learning.  We embrace a philosophy of education that combines a nurturing, inclusive learning environment with an increasingly challenging learning environment that addresses the developmental needs of each child.  Our curriculum is time-tested, unique to the LRPS Group, and crafted by our own Curriculum Directors.

This customized curriculum is theme-based, and draws from Caps Program for our Grade R’s and the National Curriculum Framework for the other age groups.   We believe this blend offers children the well-rounded experiences and skill set needed for their future learning journey.  Well-organized classrooms are divided into interest areas, and children have a multitude of materials available to them for various types of play.  Each day is intended to be joyful and full of discovery. Teachers lead children through a variety of experiences and learning opportunities that balances acquiring knowledge and meaningful play.

Play is fun, but it is also how young children learn.

Through play, they learn conflict resolution, respect, creativity, independence, and self-confidence. Rather than just passive learning, play encourages children to actively engage in their world and become mini “scientists”—exploring, manipulating, and interacting with their environment. Play allows them to investigate, create, and discover; it motivates them to take risks; and it adds to their understanding of the world.


As children progress upwards into the different age groupings, our curriculum is both challenging and developmentally appropriate for the age and maturity of each child. Through discovery and exploration, our children learn that acquiring knowledge can be both challenging and fun. Children are encouraged to take intellectual risks: to ask questions, venture answers, express their imaginations, and try things in an accepting environment.

The different Learning Areas include Maths, Language and Life Skills as set out in the CAPS Curriculum, and for children 5 Years and below we follow the ELDAS as recommended in the National Curriculum Framework. (NCF)


We know that it’s equally important that our teachers, like parents, are models for children in every circumstance. The following are some of our social modeling philosophies:

  • Children who see their teachers treating them or their classmates with understanding and respect when they make mistakes are more likely to be tolerant of the mistakes of others, and to be more willing to take risks themselves.
  • Children also learn that it is acceptable to make mistakes when they see their teachers make mistakes without losing their composure.
  • When children watch teachers co-operate with each other in running the classroom, they learn valuable lessons about the benefits of teamwork.
  • When teachers help children settle conflicts that arise on the playground or in the classroom, children pick up strategies for conflict resolution that they themselves can later apply.
  • Our students learn from teachers that their ideas are respected and valued when the teachers encourage them to make choices for themselves.
  • Enthusiasm is contagious: teachers who exhibit enthusiasm for the subject matter of their lessons are more likely to have enthusiastic students.
  • The traditions practiced in our school community also serve as an integral part of our social curriculum.
