Foundation phase: Group 5 to Grade R
At Curro Thatchfield our Early Childhood Development centre caters for learners in Group 5 (5years old) and Grade R (six years old).
In this phase we focus on four principles:
We have created a centre of learning where learners can realise their full potential by providing a comprehensive, individual-orientated educational programme of the highest standard.
Curro Thatchfield provides a sound foundation for carrying out the tasks and meeting the challenges of future learning.
We create an environment of opportunity where the learner acquires general knowledge, the right attitudes and ethical and moral principles.
We encourage and teach each learner social and life skills in a warm and loving environment.
We acknowledge that each learner is an individual and we allow them to work at their own pace.
We create a sound and safe environment where each learner is extended and growth is encouraged academically, socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
Our learners participate in outings, educational visits, concerts, fun days and graduation, to list a few.
We teach children to be critical and creative thinkers.
