About Us

Message from the Principal:

Our Crawford academic philosophy is to teach your child to “Think, Understand and Apply”. Our Commitment to excellence is an overriding philosophy that permeates every aspect of our unique school. This is visible in both classrooms and playgrounds.

We create a child-friendly environment in which the child feels relaxed and secure; an environment that is original, motivating and stimulating.

Crawford Village Mission Statement

To nurture, protect and encourage our pupils so they can grow and develop towards their full potential...

in a loving, caring environment.

Crawford Pre-Primary Village has been providing a superb education for the past 25 years. Since becoming part of the Crawford group 13 years ago we can offer even more to our pupils.

I have excellent, highly trained and experienced staff members who value and nurture each child as a little individual who has strengths, needs and personal characteristics. We teach to a child’s strengths while identifying and supporting those developmental areas that need a little polishing. Our aim is to ensure each child is ready to fly when they move on to Grade One.

While a child explores and experiments in our child-friendly environment we encourage independence, self-reliance and the ability to think through problems and challenges.

This process develops vital self-esteem and self-confidence.

Do come along and visit our wonderful little school so we can show you all we have to offer your child.
