Established in 2015, ClevaMe Academy situated in Blackheath, Randburg was founded by Marlize Visser, an experienced teacher with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Development and a Diploma in Montessori Education.
Marlize, a parent herself, identified the gap for a baby care centre and preschool that combined Montessori techniques, whilst achieving CAPS compliancy. The ClevaMe Brain Development Programme was developed based on these principles.
The location of the academy provides ease of drop off and collection for parents facing Johannesburg traffic, and the property was developed to ensure large classrooms and ample outdoor play areas to encourage exercise for those little bodies.
ClevaMe Baby Care Centre
Our Baby Care Centre provides low child to carer ratio classes for babies from the age of 3 months to 2 years.
Focus is placed on your child’s holistic development, including the achievement of milestones, foundation for fine- and gross motor skills development, art, play, music and exercise.
The ClevaMe baby brain development programme, which was developed exclusively for our academy, forms an integral part of your child’s daily routine, and assists our teachers and assistants in engaging your child in a fun holistic way.
Daily feedback is given to parents, and evaluations are done during June and November of each year to keep you informed about your child’s development
