Herzlia Kerem lies in the southern suburbs of Cape Town and caters for children from 18 months to Grade R.

Our strong ethos of inclusivity precedes our acceptance of all children and we constantly strive to provide the appropriate support they require. Our campus has a strong focus on developing self-esteem and nurturing each child’s potential as well as an open-door policy to create a sound partnership with our parents.

Kerem has a magnificent and dedicated team of teachers, psychologists, learning support facilitators, assistants and aftercare coordinators. In addition, we have onsite occupational, physio, speech and language therapists. The professional team meets twice a week to plan and support each other, the children, their parents and families.

To ensure that we’re up-to-date on the latest in childhood trends and issues, early childhood staff development is ongoing, with educators attending staff development regularly. We communicate with our parents weekly about activities in the school and classrooms respectively.

As part of our foundational pillars in education, we integrate all Jewish festivals and daily practices into our programme and plan the children’s learning around themes that are relevant to their lives. We have educational outings, parent events and exciting fun learning experiences and offer children a great start as they begin their journey through school.

Kerem is the entry point into United Herzlia Schools and the beginning of an exciting educational journey. Here, your child can discover that learning is fun, exciting and successful.

“The love and warmth one feels when walking onto the Kerem campus is tangible. Our very special community of parents, extended family as well as the Kerem team, work together to educate, care for and raise our beautiful children spirituality, physically, emotionally and cognitively. Each child is seen as an individual and loved and respected as such. We are all truly privileged to be part of each child's journey.”
