Pre-School & Learning Centre

Our Background: 

Live and Learn Academy was birthed many years ago in the heart of it's owner & principal, Tania Burev; a deep desire & passion had been growing inside of her to provide her own children with a better educational experience than what was available. Tania had been searching for years because of her own disappointment in the day care and pre-school's available in the East Rand area.

With Tania's background in management, a bachelors degree, certificates and studies completed she knew that it was possible that God had been preparing her for such a time as this, and so Live and Learn Academy was birthed in 2012 and then became a formal Pre-School in 2014.  

Live & Learn Academy is a proudly Evergreen Childcare & Tall Trees Temperament practicing facility.  constantly improving their skills in the industry.
