Pre-primary curriculum

Since 2010 Namibia has its own pre-primary curriculum, which was compiled by various experts in the field of early childhood development. 

The curriculum is based on: Stepping Stones by Grove and HauptfleishAll-in-One and The South African Teacher Association Manual for Teaching (3-5 years). 

The focus of our curriculum will be on the development of the child in every aspect (a holistic approach  ̶  emotional, perceptual, motorial, social and intellectual development). 

Regular excursions to interesting venues will be done. 

Activities in the curriculum provide the learner with a general basis to help him/her to master specific academic skills at a later stage. 

Activities, games and songs form an active part of the curriculum, and stimulate the creative development of the child. 

Activities encourage the child to become independent and build a positive self-esteem that is needed for school readiness.
