The Johanna Malan Early Childhood Development Centre serves 65-75 children annually with formal pre-school education in Observatory, Johannesburg. These children benefit from a highly respected and successful school readiness programme. Apart from our Maria Kloppers campus toddlers, the children come from poor families in Yeoville and surrounding areas. This provides them with an important educational foundation, essential to their development and growth.
