Down To Earth Education

Pringle House Eco School is a Pringle Bay based school offering nursery care and schooling up to grade five in the Hangklip-Kleinmond area. The school is small and closely follows the CAPS (Curriculum Assessment Policy Statements) education system while incorporating the philosophy of sustainability in their syllabus. Part of WESSA (Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa), Pringle House Eco School has also developed their own education system called the Pringle House Education System. This system centres around the learners mental, emotional and physical needs to develop each learner holistically. Classes are small, allowing the experienced teachers to attend to each learner individually and give them the loving attention and guidance they deserve. Upon enrolment, each child gets assessed so that they are placed into the correct class where they are regularly assessed throughout the year to monitor their progress. Parents will receive bi-annual reports on their child's progress.
