What is Playschools all about?
The Playschools Directory began way-back-when we were searching for a suitable pre-school for our babies. For many years, all listings were added manually by overworked Jacs. This new format will allow schools to add their own listing and update it as required. Listings still need to be approved before publishing, but this is a much quicker process. Playschools features creches, daycare centres, day-mothers, pre-schools and early-learning centres across South Africa. Each listing can include: Name of school; Contact Person, Phone number/s; Facebook page link; Website link; Physical address & Map. Email addresses are hidden to protect the school from possible spam-bots.
Why can't I find any schools in my area?
Playschools is still growing, and many establishments are not yet listed on our site. We hope to cover more areas soon.
How do I add a listing?
Representatives of Pre-Schools can sign up, log in, and submit a listing. Click on "List your school" in the main navigation bar or "Add New Listing" on your account page, and complete the information. We will moderate all new listings before publishing. Random verifications will be done from time to time.
How do I update a listing?
If you have registered on this site and submitted a listing, just log in and update the information. If you would like to update an older listing (created by Playschools) you can click "Report a Problem" at the bottom of the page and let us know what needs to change. School representatives can also register, and then request to claim a particular listing. We will obviously need to verify ownership before giving you access to a listing.
I called the number and there was no answer, or the number was incorrect.
Some listings have been carried over from our old site. This school may have moved, changed their number, or even closed. Please click "Report a problem" at the bottom of the page to let us know. Thanks for helping! We will follow up on all reported problems.
Why can't I view the school's email address?
To protect listings from potential spam-bots, we have decided not to show email addresses on the page. If you can't reach them via their phone number, website or Facebook page, please let us know by sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include the page URL (full link in the address bar), and we will forward your message.
How do I add a comment or review?
We do not currently allow reviews or comments on listings.
There is some incorrect information on my school's listing page, can I edit it?
Yes of course. You can simply send us an email to discuss the changes, or you can register (sign up) and then request to claim the listing, which will allow you to make the edits yourself.
