Flower Valley’s Pre-school has entered 2014 with a full house. The school is currentlyedc1 offering its environmental education curriculum to 19 children. The children come from small towns and rural areas in the Strandveld region, including Gansbaai, Blompark and Masekhane.

The Pre-school has two classes: for children aged two to four, and the Grade R class (the year before primary school). As the school belongs to the Wessa Eco-Schools Programme, it ensures they are introduced to environmental themes and issues from a young age. The Flower Valley Pre-school is the longest serving Eco-Schools member in the entire Overberg. Eco-Schools themes include: Nature and Biodiversity, Healthy Living and the Use of Natural Resource.

The Pre-school will also this year serve as a demonstration site under the Flower Valley Early Childhood Development Programme. As a result, the school will serve as a learning hub for other schools, allowing teachers and scholars who form part of the programme to visit the school and learn from its activities.
