Why Little Anchors?

Our pre-school is small, intimate and nuturing. While separate from Maris Stella’s other school phases, the pre-school forms part of the wider school family, with specially delegated high school leaders assigned to each class. This promotes a sense of sisterhood and belonging, boosting confidence and independence and offering an enriching and unique experience.

Welcome from the Teacher In Charge of our Pre-School

At Little Anchors Pre-School, we offer a vibrant,  happy place for young girls to learn and grow.

We pride ourselves on ensuring a great balance between teacher-directed and free choice activities, encouraging active learning which is child-centered, age-appropriate, and, most importantly, fun!

Our Pre-school, as well as being a beautiful environment, is small, intimate, and nuturing. We are passionate about developing the whole child, balancing their cognitive, emotional, spiritual, and social growth from the age of 3 – 6 years.

At Little Anchors, your daughter will be loved and cared for by our excellent team of teachers and staff, while we lay a firm foundation for her future academic success.
