Alpha Step Educare


Alpha Step is a child centered educare / day care situated in Walmer where diversity is embraced and every child enjoys learning and play in a safe and nurturing environment.

We strive to meet all the pre-school child's developmental needs; physical, social, emotional and cognitive. (Cognitive skills are thinking skills – mental tools that enable us to learn and operate effectively, with them we are able to learn and do most of what life demands of us).

We remain open for the holidays during the year and have an annual shut down at the end of the year. 
Holiday club is available at no extra cost to all children enrolled at Alpha Step.
