About Our School

Happy Feet Pre-primary and Daycare is situated in the heart of the Morningside area within Berea, Durban and is well positioned to serve the immediate community as well as those working in the central business district of Durban.

Established some forty years ago, the school has four playgrounds and spacious Oregon Pine floored classrooms which provide the children ample space to learn and grow to their full potential.

In addition to the standard Full and Half Day Care options, we have a Holiday Club and After Care option. Children may also be enrolled on an AD HOC basis for those unforeseen and emergency circumstances.


Mission Statement

Our aim is to provide a safe and secure environment which focuses on the social, emotional, physical and educational development of a child in the absence of their parents and whilst under our care through a highly dedicated and highly trained team of child practitioners following a structured, well-planned and balanced curriculum.


At The Heart of Happy Feet

Trudi And Andre

The school is owned and run by two very experienced and professional business owners, Trudi-Lee Low-Shang and Andre Nel.

Trudi-Lee Low-Shang attends to all educational, teaching, financial and nutritional matters.

Andre Nel is involved with the administration and maintenance aspect of the facility.


We would like to thank you for the opportunity that you have given our daughter (Z. B.) to be part of your establishment. We have observed significant growth and development in her within a limited time period.

We are sincerely grateful to you and your staff for the manner in which you handle our children.

You have done it with great professionalism, dedication and diligence… always with a smile.

Today marks exactly a year since T. started his journey with Happy Feet Pre-Primary and Daycare. Since then I have only praises to sing… Trudi and Andre you made me feel comfortable in taking the next step in making sure my son was SAFE and well looked after… I know my husband and I made the right decision in choosing Happy Feet. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK U and God Bless.

T.’s Mom

We certainly recommend Happy Feet Pre-Primary and Daycare to all parents who only want the best for their little ones, because of the peace of mind you gave us when we left our little one in your loving care. We are forever grateful for the love and lessons you have given C.
