About Us

Erica Girls’ Pre-Primary was established in 1996, forming part of the prestigious Erica Girls’ Primary School in Port Elizabeth. Erica Girls' Pre-Primary focuses on what your daughter needs most: firm foundations in order for her to develop the necessary social, emotional, spiritual, physical and academic skills to excel.
These areas are developed and nurtured in a loving and caring family environment in order for them to reach their full potential and prepare for Formal Education. By placing your daughter at the center of our focus, we are able to instil values that will see her achieve all that she dreams.
