Children of Promise Primary School

Children of Promise Primary School Overview

The Almond Tree Children of Promise Primary School was established in 2021 as a Christian-based independent school, located in Cloverdene, Benoni.

We believe in establishing a solid foundation that is deeply rooted in a culture of family values. Our heart is to provide a nurturing environment that encourages children to grow spiritually and emotionally, overcoming barriers to learning and to help them reach their full academic potential. The school is well-resourced, and provides education to our village children, and children from the local community.

 Our preschool, The Almond Tree Nurture Nest was established in 2019 and we are registered with the Department of Education for pre-grade ages and Grade R.

The Foundation Phase is established (Grades 1-3), and we are growing grade by grade to Grade 7. The Grade Rs from the Nurture Nest Preschool share our beautiful school grounds with us.

We follow a multi-teaching strategy approach. This encompasses a staff complement that are qualified, SACE certified, and experienced in providing remedial intervention. The teachers are trauma-trained and are experienced in dealing with children from challenging backgrounds.

Our school is culturally positioned to include music, drama, and the arts. We pride ourselves in offering isiZulu as a first additional language.

The physical education program focuses on the development of physical fitness, training  children to develop skills and confidence, maintain fitness, build awareness about personal health and wellness, and promote positive social skills.

Our Primary School follows the CAPS National Curriculum using a multi-sensory teaching approach which involves the use of all senses to engage the children in their learning experience.
