Pre-schools and childcare in Cape Town are mostly private organisations that can be found in most suburbs, as they cater to the neighbourhood's infants and toddlers.

Apart from word of mouth, there are several resources available to help expat parents find the right pre-school for their child. Online forums can be useful, as other parents share positive or negative feedback about the pre-school.

Long-term expats should consider that certain pre-schools are feeders for some of the city’s best schools, and having their children attend them may be advantageous when the time comes to apply for primary school.

Here is a list of some of the most prominent pre-schools in Cape Town.
