Both the Chartwell and Fourways campus offer an afternoon programme called Stay and Play from 13:30 – 17:30 to accommodate working parents. A teacher is employed specially to run this programme. Children are accommodated in safe classrooms and playgrounds and are engaged in fun, exciting activities. They also receive a freshly prepared meal and a healthy snack. Stay and Play is at an additional cost, but we also offer a waiting class until 13:30 which is free of charge.
Our school runs a full holiday care programme during school holidays, at an additional cost as stipulated on our fees letter. Regular activities would continue, although we may arrange some extra fun activities during this time. We are closed for a specified period during December and January.
At Land of Oz Nursery School, our multi-disciplinary therapy team at both campuses consists of speech therapists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and educational psychologists. Both schools have fully-equipped therapy rooms for all of the above-mentioned disciplines and children are assessed and treated at school during the morning. All the therapists are available for afternoon therapy too.
Our experienced and registered therapists have been fully-integrated into the school and its staff for many years. These therapists provide ongoing teacher training at regular periods throughout the year. The team meets weekly and holds regular round-table meetings in order to deliver quality therapy and feedback to both teachers and parents. Each therapist is fully qualified, highly experienced and registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa.
