A Place Like Home is a dream-come-true business of the owner, Alida Hill. Alida always envisaged a school which is home away from home. The business was started because the owner could not find a school the met the requirements she had for her own children.
Something that started as a small crèche, developed into a business with different focus areas in the Education industry.
A Place Like Home owns a Baby Centre called Babaland and Crèche called Mensieland, where the highest standards are enforced.
A Place Like Home recently developed a program, Class out of a Box, where various games, tools and activities form part of a box for every age group, in order to reach the milestones prescribed by Occupational Therapists. Our Class out of a Box is not only used by the Company’s own crèches, but also rolled out to other nursery schools in Gauteng, Limpopo and Namibia. Our Class out of a Box could be used by ECD Qualified teachers, Occupational Therapists, non-qualified teachers and even mothers who want to lay the early foundation at home.
Under the A Place Like Home umbrella, we developed FuturePreneurs, a program where we teach children Financial Literacy, Entrepreneurship and Life Skills from the age of six. We do this through stories, games, roleplay and by just having fun.
At A Place Like Home, everything is in the best interest of your child. Children is our passion, and we believe in late President Nelson Mandela’s motto: “Education is the most powerful weapon we have to change the world”!
