Tambotie Preparatory School (we are now a nursery and a primary school) is situated in Chrisville, Johannesburg. This suburb is where Kliprivier Drive (M7) crosses Rifle Range Road (M38), close to the Southern Bypass (N12). Tambotie is within range of Southdale, Gillview, Robertsham, Ridgeway, Ormonde, Glenanda, Glenvista and Mondeor. We are a non-profit association incorporated in terms of Section 21.
Our mission is to provide a high standard of education at an affordable price, to serve the community through excellence and dedication in educating and nurturing children, and to promote high moral values. We provide opportunities for children to develop to their full potential as young individuals with positive and creative minds.
Our philosophy is, to create a warm, friendly, relaxed and non-racial environment for children to learn, explore and play in an informal situation. Play is our medium for learning social skills, confidence, independence, self expression and communication.
As confident, experienced and professional educators we have a positive approach to discipline and refrain from humiliating or threatening methods.
Our learning programme promotes the child as a whole. Physical, social, emotional, intellectual and language development are our primary focus. At Tambotie we acknowledge that children are individuals, each with their own developmental needs. Our teachers act as facilitators in their exploration of knowledge.
