Curro Castle Wilgeheuwel
Curro Castle Wilgeheuwel is an independent nursery school in Wilgeheuwel, Roodepoort that provides high-quality early childhood development for children from 3 months to 5 years. Our small class sizes allow our dedicated teachers to engage each child in our internally developed play-based curriculum and to build strong, caring relationships with each child.
Our school is on the same campus as Curro Academy Wilgeheuwel, which allows children to easily progress from nursery school to primary school in a familiar environment, However, 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 Wilgeheuwel, 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.
By incorporating the latest research in physical and cognitive development, our carefully-designed playgrounds, safety measures and daily programmes create a safe and fun-filled home away from home. Our programme even offers Lego Soft Bricks which form the important early foundation for later Robotics studies. In addition, our school fees include well-balanced wholesome meals and an afternoon snack.
Which activities do we offer?
We believe that participation in extramural activities plays an important role in promoting friendship and self-confidence in addition to physical and social well-being. These activities are 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 security guards, biometric access, and CCTV cameras on the playground. 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.
