Walking in the Light

Ligstad Alberton

Our Playgroup promote the Christian Faith.

Playgroup (3 years to 6 years)

The Ligstad NPC playgroup was established in 2015. At the start of 2015 we had a mere 4 kids. This number however grew quickly and today our playgroup has the capacity at accommodate 65 children ranging from 3 to 6 years. We love our little ones and cherish each and every moment teaching and playing with them.  We have 3 classes (3/4 year old-, 5 year old-, 6 year old-class) and education takes place in all three classes. 


Our Passion

Our Playgroup’s passion revolves around our playgroup friends. Each and every child of God is special and should be treated as such. We also have a passion to teach. Just because parents pay less for our services, does not mean that they should get less. The quality of the education Ligstad provides is top notch. We play, we learn and we laugh. We pray before every meal, read Bible stories and sing songs that glorify God. 

Our Goals

Our goal is to create a safe environment in which children can learn a play. A space where children are able to develop physically as well as mentally. A place where they can interact and advance their social skills with their friends and teachers. We help our children to develop their own voice, to grow in self-confidence and self-expression. We desire our little ones to get to know God and His love for them. Ligstad wish to play its part, in raising strong, confident and able minded members of society.
