Rynfield Bright Beginnings was established in 2004 by Dell Riley. Dell Riley is a qualified Grade R teacher who was educated at Rhodes University and the University of South Africa. Having spent many years as a pre-primary principal of a large school in Cape Town (Kenridge Pre-primary) a re-location to Gauteng presented the opportunity for her to open up a small intimate playgroup for children between the ages of 18 months and 4 years (an age that works well together). There is one class at Rynfield Bright Beginnings taught by Dell with the aid of an assistant. Our school times are mornings only, from 7:30am to 12pm, with a waiting class option until 1:30pm You can either do 3 or 5 days a week. We close for school holidays.

Our aim is to provide your child with opportunities to explore, play and experiment in a warm and loving environment. Their social and emotional needs are encouraged and stimulated and your child will become familiar with a classroom setting and routine. Above all we strive to maintain learning through play which is childhoods most important work - learning through play.
We could not have asked for a better introduction to education for our boys. They have thrived under Teacher Dell's love, patience and care. Their days are fun filled and educational. Water play, building sandcastles, art activities, music and encouragement to develop a love of books and puzzles are what fill their days. The garden is filled with a wonderful selection of jungle gyms to excite any child. Rynfield Bright Beginnings caters for all children and we have loved watching our boys develop into confident and independent little people. We are SO grateful to have sent our children to such an amazing school.

I highly recommend this special play -school. My son, Wade attended Rynfield Bright Beginnings for 3 years. Dell was like a second mom to him. Dell is a warm, friendly and dedicated teacher. Wade left Rynfield Bright Beginnings equipped with the confidence, social and academic skills to soar in Grade R . Our family will always look back with the fondest memories of his time there.

I am so grateful that my children started their pre-school education at Rynfield Bright Beginnings. From the moment I first walked into the school I sensed that it was a place of unconditional love and warmth Dell and her staff are amazing with children and parents alike. I never had a moment of worry or uncertainty when leaving my children in their care. Thank you from the bottom of my heart - my children left Rynfield Bright Beginnings happy and confident and well prepared to face the challenges of "big school".

Bright Beginnings was such a wonderful start for both my sons. Being with Dell in a small nurturing environment grew their confidence and gave them building blocks for their social skills. My boys have made friendships which have grown with them to this day. The environmnet is peaceful and secure away from the hustle and bustle. Dell will always have a special place in our hearts.
