Urban Kids Educentre


Urban Kids Educentre is a preschool that caters to underprivileged and emerging families living in the surrounding area.  Starting with 7 children in 2011, we have grown to 6 classes with over 100 children.

It truly is a vibrant and very happy school – the playground is almost always busy and the kids love school.

  • Children graduate with a love for learning that is imparted into each child at Urban Kids.
  • Parents realise the importance of education for their children.By the end of their child’s time at Urban Kids, they firmly believe it is important to make sure their child gets the best education they can afford.
  • Our amazing teachers give selflessly every day to their pupils– setting a strong foundation for their journey through big school. 

We are so privileged to play such a great role in the start of all these childrens’ lives and school careers – we can’t wait to hear of their wonderful Matric results in decades to come! 

Here’s a look into the “Day in a life of a Grade R’ at Urban Kids…

School In a Box

Our fledgling project: School in a Box aims to establish low-cost, insulated and fully equipped classrooms and/or whole preschools in impoverished communities). Working with our UpliftED Training Programme, our long-term goal is to establish these preschools in as many municipalities of South Africa as we can. This will mean better-resourced preschools for poor communities, higher standards of teaching and a better foundational education for the next generation of this nation.

Our hopes and dreams for School in a Box are vast and daunting, but we believe that together with our community, donors and a whole lot of passion, we will see these dreams come to pass. Email us to get involved.
