The Syringa Early Childhood Development Centre is situated in Eldorado Park, South of Johannesburg. It caters for the educational needs of children aged 2-6 years old.

Our Centre, previously known as Nespro Pre-School underwent a name change in 2012. We are now known as Syringa Early Childhood Development Centre. It has been in existence for the past 15 years. (Founded in 2001)

At Syringa ECD Centre we aim to develop the child holistically, to prepare him/her for formal learning (School Readiness), by providing a healthy, stimulating and fruitful environment where they can participate in physical, emotional, social, creative, intellectual and cognitive experiences, in order to develop to their full potential. This will help them to deal with a rapidly changing world.

The Centre provides the child with skills, like Pre-Mathematical skills, Pre-Reading and Literacy skills, Listening skills and Science.

A well balanced menu provides two cooked meals and two healthy snacks for each child everyday in order to increase their chances of healthy growth and development.
