Humble Beginnings

Teacher Monique has always had a dream of owning her own little nursery school. Coming from a teaching background and being the inaugural Teddy Teacher at Elma Park Pre Primary she soon developed an absolute passion for changing little lives for the better. After many many years of waiting for the right opportunity and identifying a need for a quality nursery school and baby care facility in Edenvale. In 2018 Teacher Monique and her daughter Teacher Nadine identified the property at 1 van Rijn street in Edenglen as the property they have been looking for and with the help of Paulo Martins from Cherrywood Estates and Wynandt Theron from…….  the dream soon became a reality and construction started on Minion Play School on 27th March 2018.

Loving Husband and father Coenie van Jaarsveld and his team helped his wife Monique and daughter Nadine with the building and construction of the school and within 76 days construction was complete on the …… and Minion Play School was finally a tangible reality for this mother – daughter duo.

With a state of the art facility that aims to be one of kind we at Minion Play School believe that the learners are the heartbeat of the school and form the basis of what we at Minions stand for.
