Celebrating 25 years !

about our school

Based in the heart of old Bryanston, opposite the Country Club, our  playschool is nestled in a garden amongst the trees. The Secret Garden Playschool offers an education that encourages free thinking and creativity within a rich, rhythmic, loving environment. Drawing our inspiration from the best of Waldorf, Montessori and mainstream principles, our unique blend of educational styles will benefit your child immensely. We see our playschool as your child’s home away from home, where we take care of their vital individual, and emotional developmental needs. We teach our children how to work together and interact socially as well as how to enjoy playing by themselves. These skills will provide them with a foundation for personal confidence and growth that will stay with them for the rest of their lives and pave the way for fulfilment and purpose.



Please contact our office or complete the contact form below should you wish to enrol, enquire or arrange a meeting with owner and Principal, Abigail Kidson. She would love to show you around the school and discuss our unique offering.

I have 3 daughters all of whom have been at The Secret Garden. It is a home away from home. The best grounding for children focusing on Waldorf based principles. Highly recommended!
