The Children's Workshop is a well-established Montessori school situated in the residential suburb of Claremont, Cape Town, between Belvedere and Selous Roads.

We provide a warm, nurturing co-educational environment following the Montessori Curriculum. It is an English medium school where we focus on the holistic development of the children in a non-discriminatory atmosphere.

We believe:

• In the development of the whole child

• That each child is unique and special

• That our staff, with parents and the community, provided our learners with a secure foundation for life-long learning

• That through our caring and supporting environment, we foster positive values

• That through our innovative curricula we help all children to develop to their full potential

We, as a staff, encourage the total development of each child by modelling an intrinsic love and respect for all life.

The ratio of adult to child varies between the age groups

• The Nursery classes have a ratio of 1 to 7.

• The Preschool classes have a ratio of 1 to 12.

• The Primary classes have a ratio of 1 to 15.


The Children's Workshop was founded in 1980. It was the first Montessori School in Cape Town. 

The Children's Campaign Trust purchased it in 2009.
