About the employer

At Little Jewels we believe the learning process begins long before formal schooling. Between the ages of 0 - 5 your child absorbs everything in their environment without the sophisticated capacity to distinguish between good and bad. At Little Jewels we believe that it is our task to present to the children within our care that which is wholesome and worthy of imitation during these informative years. We believe the knowledge, experience and learning principles acquired during these early years are an important basis from which the children will advance into formal learning.
