You are able to filter resource listings to display a more refined list. For example, if you go to the preschool guide, you can select Cape Town to the left of your monitor under the city category. You can then type in a suburb / area in the search field above this (i.e. Bellville) and click search. This will filter all the listings that have ‘Bellville’ as the area. This will considerably shorten the list you will need to browse to find a school in the area of your choice. This function works for other resource categories too. You can also use the alphabetical filter above the resource listings.
