About Us

Since the establishment of Bonthuis on the 1st of April 1979 in Pretoria, we have had the determination to provide surroundings in which child development can flourish in a happy and positive style. Bonthuis consequently became known for its high academic standards supported by excellent teachers, the careful fostering of individual talents together with the need for a child's privacy and comfort, which provided the basis for our plans for the future.

The owner Mrs. Vonka Cloete passed away on 15 October 2008. Her husband Mr. Frans Cloete, son Mr. André Cloete and daughter Dr. Yvette Cloete are the new owners of Bonthuis Nursery School and Mrs. Annette Lategan is the Principal.

Our Mission: We shall strive to meet these objectives and to continue to offer all that is best in modern educational practices.

Communication between the school and you as parents is of the utmost importance to us. As a team we will strive to ensure your child's happiness and well being at all times. Please feel free to discuss any concerns with the principal and staff at Bonthuis.

"I cannot praise Bonthuis as a school and James' teachers enough and I am convinced the wonderful child James is, is due to large measure to the school and staff, so please be assured of my deepest gratitude to Bonthuis and the staff."
~ Grant Howard (Parent of former student)
