Foundation phase

The foundation phase consists of dedicated and innovative educators who have a wide range of experience teaching learners in their early years.

Our aim is to follow a holistic approach in teaching and learning in the early years.

We offer a vibrant, invitational atmosphere where the learners enjoy school and where they acquire a love for learning that will sustain them throughout their school years.

We acknowledge the potential of each learner to reach their optimum ability and therefore there is less emphasis on competitiveness and more emphasis on individual achievement.
