Building Blocks Nursery Schools

Curro Nursery Schools aim to inspire young minds to become extraordinary through the unique Curro nursery school curriculum. It is designed with early learning goals in mind:

  • Language development
  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Creative development (Art)
  • Cognitive thinking, memory skills and numeracy (Mathematics)
  • Knowledge and understanding of the world (Science and Technology)

                                          

 We strive to optimise learning in young brains and to capitalise on the potential children have for learning from a young age.  We therefore pay special attention to the theories of teaching and the science behind how we develop to ensure that our children receive the best education possible. Children extend their boundaries of understanding by working to find solutions in an environment where dialogue between educators and children keep them motivated, stimulating their creativity while developing their cognitive abilities.

Soon the Building Blocks curriculum will include LEGO Education learning concepts and the activities built around Lego Soft Bricks form the important early foundations for later Robotics studies.
