Grade 0 is an independently run school, situated in the Bryanston Primary School grounds. Our fundamental objective is for each child to develop a positive and sustaining image of themselves and others. Our focus is for the learner to master the skills necessary for their life ahead and in doing so giving them the experience to develop and obtain an optimum level of readiness for school, as well as to develop positive attitudes to and interest in all learning.
