The Crèche - 3 to 12 Months Age Group
Knowing how important the first 3 years of a child's life is, we at Bonthuis, strive not only to give the very best physical care to our toddlers but also to lay a solid grounding for their future education and development. We achieve this through our excellent staff.

"I cannot praise Bonthuis as a school and James' teachers enough and I am convinced the wondeful child James is, is due to large measure to the school and staff, so please be assured of my deepest gratitude to Bonthuis and the staff."
