About Us (History)

Sometime during 2003, Lenie Botha learnt about the proposed development of Midrand Estates (incorporating Midstream Estate) in Centurion. At an open day meeting, she enquired about the proposed pre-school in Midstream Estate, from Bondev Developments, who indicated that they will contact her as soon as the project starts. Upon hearing this, Lenie contacted Mariaan Bester, a colleague and friend within a pre-school setting and together they submitted a business plan to Bondev Developments. They contacted an expert in pre-school education, Sophie Breytenbach, to develop an educational curriculum for MCPP.

Around the middle of 2004, Bondev Developments awarded them the contract for managing MCPP and together these two ladies took up the challenge to get the school functional by January 2005. In January 2005, MCPP opened its doors to 96 learners, accommodated in five of the potential 12 classes and with Mrs. Botha and Mrs. Bester as Principals and Directors. By the end of 2005, 187 learners filled eight classes and in January 2006, 300 learners filled the School’s 12 classes to capacity. Soon the school had a waiting list of around 200 learners, which motivated Bondev Developments to build a second pre-primary School in Midlands Estate, the management of which was again awarded to Mrs. Botha and Mrs. Bester.

Around two years later it was time to hand over the day-to-day operational management of MCPP to a Principal to free up the two ladies to devote their full attention to Midlands Pre-Primary School

Currently they manage both pre-schools.


MCPP’s VISION is embodied it its motto: "Happy toddlers geared for tomorrow...”


  • To appoint quality, suitably qualified staff that love education.
  • To make excellent facilities available.
  • To make training and self-enrichment an integral part of the year programme. An exciting curriculum that provides ample opportunity to explore and experiment.

The OBJECTIVE with the toddlers and behind the ESTABLISHMENT of MCPP is to guide the child to become the person that he/she should be. The DIDACTIC OBJECTIVE of the school is to – through inviting education – call the child to obtain knowledge, comprehension and skill that will over time lead to a pleasurable existence. Excellence is the SPECIFIC objective of this school. In order to plant the seed of excellence in young children, they need ample opportunity for enthusiastic physical play, a wide variety of interesting items, challenging projects, creative thought and unlimited flights of fancy, all of which are provided by MCPP. In addition, every child is expected to participate in all activities without fear and hesitation.
