Curro Castle Krugersdorp
Curro Castle Krugersdorp is an independent nursery school in Noordheuwel, Krugersdorp that provides high-quality early childhood development for children from Group 2 (the year the child turns 2) to Group 5 (the year the child turns 5) with a focus on the ELDAs. Our small class sizes allow our dedicated and qualified teachers to engage each child in our internally developed play-based curriculum and to build strong, caring relationships with each child.
Our school is down the street from Curro Krugersdorp Primary School, which allows children to easily progress from nursery school to primary school in a familiar environment. Our building is separate from the primary and high school buildings to improve access control and ensure the children’s safety on the playground.
What do we offer?
At Curro Castle Krugersdorp we lay the foundation for your child’s future social and academic life by incorporating play in stimulating, developmental activities such as creative movement and artistic expression. By involving you as parents in your child’s learning experience, we provide a holistic development programme at affordable fees that stretches beyond the classroom.
We focus on the ELDAs
Our internally developed nursery school programme is designed with the Early Learning and Development Areas (ELDAs) in mind. The programme is designed to stimulate physical, social, emotional and cognitive well-being through developmental activities and engaging play areas.
By incorporating the latest research in physical and cognitive development, our three carefully-designed playgrounds, safety measures and daily programme create a safe and fun-filled home away from home. Our programme even offers computer classes and activities built around large soft bricks, which form the important early foundation for later Robotics studies in the primary school. In addition, our school fees include well-balanced wholesome meals, all stationery and an afternoon snack and we also accommodate working parents by having an early drop-off service from 06:30 as well as an aftercare class.
Which activities do we offer?
Children may participate in extramural activities as we believe that these play an important role in promoting friendship and self-confidence in addition to physical and social well-being. These activities are voluntary at an additional cost and designed to help children learn valuable skills, such as hand-eye coordination or balance, that require more time for development than can be provided during the daily programme.
How do we ensure safety in our school?
Our strict security measures ensure the safety of our children. The campus is protected by a security guard, keypad access, and CCTV cameras on the playground and in the classrooms. Visitors need to sign in to gain access and the number of visitors per class is limited. Children are collected from the classroom or aftercare centre and are signed in and out daily to ensure that they remain safe and accounted for.
