New campus for Kerem Pre-primary

On 13 July 2021, Herzlia Kerem Pre-primary’s brand new campus was officially opened.

This beautiful and safe tree-filled haven offers a homely atmosphere, and retains the same trusted, inclusive, values-based, warm and stimulating Kerem Pre-primary experience, where children from 18 months to Grade R can explore, discover and learn together.

Cara Jacobs, Head Teacher at Herzlia Kerem Pre-primary, describes the new campus as “nestled in the “heart” of Constantia, where we’ve created a sense of calm, containment and community for our children and families. Just being at the campus evokes feelings of wonder and calm with nature in all its glory, with trees, wide open space and bunnies playing side-by-side in the lush grass with our children. Kerem continues to educate pupils using traditional values and methods and incorporates the latest in technology like smart boards to create a rich, balanced learning foundation.”

Geoff Cohen, UHS Director of Education says, “Kerem has a strong focus on developing self-esteem and nurturing each child’s potential. When our children leave, they do so as independent and confident individuals, ready to face the challenges and expectations of Grade 1.”

“We are so pleased to have Kerem in Constantia as part of our three Herzlia preschools,” says Andries van Renssen, UHS Executive Director. “Most pupils who finish Grade R at Kerem progress to Herzlia Highlands Primary in the City Bowl for Grade 1. It is clear that the quality of teaching and care at Herzlia Kerem is the single biggest contributing factor to the success they go on to achieve.”
