Burning Bush


60 children aged 3-6 years old. 

Preschool's Vision:

To promote good quality Education in our community to all children from ages of 18 months to 6 years.

Principal's story:

I started volunteering at Burning Bush when I was 17 years old. I did not want to go to school anymore. After 1 month I became permanent staff and worked with the 2-3 year olds. I went to do my level 1 and started enjoying working with children, especially those with special needs. I had 2 special children in my class and I think that is why I stayed in this sector.

I took over Burning Bush in 2018 as I didn’t want it to close down after 21 years. Seeing the children in the morning with smiles on their faces keeps me motivated.

My parents had 7 children and never really had that special alone time with me. I make sure that I spend some one on one time with the children so that they can feel that they are seen and heard.

How to help:


We need fundraising champions. Get creative – run a marathon on your front yard, host a virtual high tea, do something amazing and encourage your friends and family to change the world through early learning.

We rely on volunteers to lend a helping hand when teachers are off sick. To work in the classroom you need an up-to-date security check.

Donate something from our wishlist:

A new roof as the roof leaks badly in the winter rains.
Cost: approx R90 000
