An early learning programme for any SA preschool

Everything you need to deliver quality education in your classroom.

Get your children school-ready

Our curriculum works: teachers trust it, DSD has approved it, and children love it!

Motivate and equip teachers

Provide teachers with practical training, all the educational equipment they need and a detailed daily programme per age group.


We’ve negotiated special, affordable finance for South African ECD centres only so that you can finally get all the resources you need.

No more stressing about the weekly theme and activities, extension ideas or finding quality, affordable equipment to get your learners on track.

With the GROW Quality Education Programme your preschool can have everything ready for 40 weeks of play-based early learning for your 2-5 year oldsthat covers all the developmental areas.

“For me, the GROW curriculum is the best thing that has happened to my school in all the years I've been running. Before we got the GROW curriculum and classroom kit, learning and teaching were very challenging. We had very little resources to support our day to day activities and learning. Now with the curriculum and learning materials our teachers are more confident in what they are doing, and our learners are having so much fun discovering and learning.”

ECD Owner and Principal, Nteseleng, from Atlehang Pre-school, Boksburg
