The Reddam House Constantia Early Learning School provides a warm, nurturing environment with three unique, separate gardens for the children's specific developmental and growth needs. On-campus occupational therapy enhances fine motor skills while support therapies are offered in the forms of Speech and Language therapy. An aftercare facility, the Adventure Zone, provides nutritious meals delivered from Kauai. The teachers are warm, empathetic and nurturing and make it their priority to celebrate the uniqueness of each child. The children are skilled and equipped age appropriately in order to ensure a sound foundation on which to further grow their skills. Our motto of "We shall give back" is instilled in the children from an early age and the children are encouraged to participate in tangible projects where they can be part of the process. The children are taught to be logical and creative thinkers who make responsible choices.

We welcome applications for children aged 1 to 6 years.
