Welcome to Hugs & Kisses Educare Centre

Why Hugs & Kisses

Established in 1993, Hugs & Kisses is a daycare and nursery school caring for children from three months through to the year in which they turn five (Grade 00). Our high caregiver to child ratio enables us to maintain a caring, nurturing and stimulating “home from home” environment for children from all cultures and religions.

To cater for working parents, we do not close for school holidays during the year, only closing for three weeks over the December-January period.
We are registered with the Gauteng Department of Social Development as well as the Health Department of the Johannesburg Metropolitan Council, and comply in all respects with the applicable Public Health By-laws. The certifications cover all aspects of health and safety, including childcare activities, food preparation, fire protection and a daily refuse removal service for soiled disposable nappies.

Leaders in childcare for over two decades.
