Peo Nursery School is the Block 7 home of Peo Group of schools. This popular school offers daycare for 2 years old and above and has been open for 25 years.
The Block 7 location is easily accessible to parents coming from all sides of town. The principal’s door is always open and Peo works on an open door policy inviting parents to come in and chat whenever and also to be more involved with their children’s day at school. Classes are split according to age. There are four large playgrounds which the children play in according to age group.
In addition to the usual preschool studies, children are able to participate in Monkeynastix, Kindermusik, swimming lessons, Bible Classes and Setswana lessons.
Working parents will be relieved to know that they offer morning classes and popular holiday programs.
Peo is a 100% citizen owned and family run business. Peo Nursery School was founded by Christine West in 1997 and has since opened two sister schools being Dipeo in 2008 and later Peo Mela in 2012. Many members of staff who have been with them for 15 years or more. The Peo Group leadership team believes in investing in the citizens of our country and spend much time in the Education and training of their Motswana staff; they believe that in-house training on how to operate and run the curriculum, policies and school procedures is one of the best ways to advance their team of teachers and assistants.
“Working with children is unlike any other business,” says Leesha St Quintin, 28, a partner in the family-run Peo Group of nursery schools. “It is a great responsibility and one that we take very seriously. But with great responsibility comes even greater reward. There is nothing better than watching our little ones grow up into amazing boys and girls. It is a privilege and honour that we get to experience all the time in this industry.”
There are 3 pre-schools under the Peo group of which Peo is only one of them. Dipeo is located in Maru-a-pula, Peo Mela is in Phakalane and Peo. With the location of these schools being in 3 strategic areas around the city it makes accessing any one of them so much easier for Parents. Nice to know is that each of these schools operate on the same programmes so are each identical to the other in terms of curriculum, policies and procedures.
