Bridget Jones started a small play group from a room off the side of her house in 1996. Play Den’s first class consisted of six children.

The opportunity arose to build a four classroom school in the beautiful country surroundings of Chartwell Fourways... And thus Country Play Den was born!

As a principal, Bridget Jones believes that each child is a precious gift that she has the privilege to teach. She runs her school with a firm but loving hand and believes in the values of respect, manners; moments of achievement and in so doing this will build a solid foundation to build on for later years.

Children from the surrounding areas of Dairnfern, Broadacres, Cedar Lakes, Fourways and Lonehill all attend the school and as families grow so do the number of siblings who later join us too.

We pride ourselves in the relationships we form with the children as well as the parents.
