Why Hugs & Kisses

Established in 1993, Hugs & Kisses is a daycare and nursery school caring for children from one to five years of age. 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.

Our classes follow the ELDA and CAPs curriculum as age appropriate. We have excellent feedback from Grade R at Rivonia Primary school regarding how well grounded the learners are who have come from Hugs & Kisses.

To cater for working parents, we do not close for school holidays during the year, only closing for approximately three weeks over the December /January period. This means there is no additional aftercare or holiday care fee payable during school holidays.

We are registered with the Health Department of Johannesburg and have a Certificate of Acceptability of Food Premises (November 2019).  We are currently in the process of re-registering with the Department of Social Development.
