Facilities

Aftercare

Our aftercare service is available at an additional cost, as stipulated on our fees letter. Children are accommodated in safe classrooms and playgrounds, and the fees include a freshly prepared meal and a snack.

Aftercare times can be viewed on our fact sheet.

 

Indoor play areas

Children learn by interacting with the world around them. Therefore, our classrooms themselves are considered to be inanimate teachers of sorts. They are designed to allow maximum room for play and movement while being stimulating on a visual and tactile level. An additional indoor play area allows a change in play space on days that the weather doesn’t allow outdoor play.

 

Outdoor play areas

Our outdoor play areas include jungle gyms, play houses, see-saws, and more. These areas are designed to encourage physical play and generally have synthetic grass to prevent allergic reactions. Children are taken outside to play on days with moderate weather conditions to prevent excessive cold or sunburn. Additional safety measures are taken on sunny days; these will be discussed with parents after enrolment.

 

Communication with parents

At our school we have open lines of communication and we encourage parents to contact us should they have any questions, concerns or suggestions. We welcome parent involvement and provide feedback on your child’s progress through regular parent-teacher meetings. We also make use of email and MyHub to keep parents informed as well as a smartphone app called HiMama. Information on daily routines, lesson plans, menus, and weekly themes as well as photos of the day’s activities can be uploaded to the app. Both MyHub and HiMama are downloadable on any device. 

 

On-site kitchen

Curro Castle Oakdene on-site kitchen is fully equipped to prepare well-balanced, wholesome meals and snacks for children in all age groups. All meals are prepared with fresh ingredients just before being delivered to the classrooms and we carefully accommodate allergies and other dietary requirements.
