Merry Days & Little Saints Preschools are private schools situated in Fourways, Johannesburg. We follow the National Early childhood Development curriculum and pride ourselves on nurturing and stimulating children at this crucial development period. The nature of teaching in the early years is unlike that of any other age group.

Play forms the foundation of the Merry Days & Little Saints programme. In our play rich environment, your child will learn about themselves; learn what words to use when asking for something; How to climb a jungle gym; what primary & secondary colours are; Colours & Shapes; Days of the week & Months; How to be a friend. Play helps children define who they are and involves singing, creative activities, fantasy play and sharing. Play is therefore the cornerstone of learning, the foundation from which children venture fourth to investigate and test. Our loving and qualified teachers plan a curriculum, that includes play as a medium for learning and as children grow, they integrate and assimilate their play experiences. What starts out as play and sheer fun is transformed into learning experiences.

We believe that through a play based programme we meet and develop a whole child, a child who is physically, Emotionally, Cognitively, Socially and Spiritually ready to face and meet the challenges of formal learning.



Jerry Thomas is the Principal & Owner of Merry Days & Little Saints Preschool.

Jerry decided to open Merry Days as a Playgroup in January 2006. As time went on the school became more and more popular and as our children grew they needed to move up to the next level/class from a playgroup to a preschool.

Today we continue to follow the love and commitment as with what they started with.

Today our schools are the most sought after schools in the Fourways area and we believe that we have been truly blessed and our schools shall continue to grow from strength to strength.

We are Christian based schools and so always say grace before we eat and give thanks always.

Our Passion and Love for Children is our driving force and we know how important Early Childhood development is.

We select and support teachers who will inspire, enthuse and encourage our little ones to the highest levels of their ability, to maximise their true potential. When you join our schools you become part of our family here at Merry Days & Little Saints and to me that is a very important part of our lives to be able to have faith, love, caring, trust and the respect of one another.

Lastly, we implement a school policy which is caring and empathetic, and which respects each individual’s needs, dignity and rights.
