Summerfield Nursery School has offered a nurturing environment to young children for more than 30 years. The original structure was a fruit packing shed on a farm in Olivedale, that was converted into a crèche and so became the first nursery school in the area. The school also has an Old Dutch Windmill that was built by Italian Prisoners of War during 1945 for a wealthy Dutch diamond dealer. Our windmill has since been declared a Heritage site, something the school is very proud of! Over the years the school has been renovated and improved several times, the last being in 2018. We are now proud to offer a professional, safe, modern and nurturing nursery school to our children aged between 4 months to 6 years.

Our Nursery School is based in Olivedale, Randburg. Feeder areas to our School include Sharonlea, Bloubosrand, Sonneglans, Northwold, Northriding, Jukskei Park, Douglasdale and Fourways areas.


Our vision is a community where all children feel loved, respected and encouraged to develop to their fullest potential. Our program is planned to promote positive growth in the lives of all the little children in our care. We adopt a holistic approach that enables each child to develop their social, physical, emotional and intellectual abilities. We know that each child is unique and special and positive early childhood experiences are instrumental for a child’s overall development in later life. We are committed to the families we serve by providing support and encouragement and helping each child to grow to his or her individual full potential, in an environment surrounded by love and respect. Our aim is to prepare our children for the rigours of formal learning, to identify any potential learning problems at an early stage and to create a secure, happy, loving and stimulating environment where children can indulge in both spontaneous play of their own choice as well as organised play, through which they can learn.

When you asked me what I did in school today and I say, “I just played”, please don’t misunderstand me. For you see, I am learning as I play. I am learning to enjoy and be successful in my work. Today I am a child and my work is play. — Anita Wadley, 1974
