Academics

Building Blocks is an independent nursery school in San Ridge, Midrand, that provides high-quality early childhood development for children from 3 years to 5 years. As a Curro Select school, 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. 

 

We are affiliated with Curro Midrand 

Our school is affiliated with nearby Curro Midrand and our children often progress to attend either of the Curro Midrand campuses from Grade R onwards.

What do we offer? 

We provide a safe, nurturing environment where children are cared for and engaged in play-based activities designed for early childhood development. Our classrooms are designed to encourage educational curiosity, while our age-appropriate playgrounds are equipped with play structures that inspire physical development through movement and play. Thereby, we ensure that children’s gross- and fine-motor coordination skills are developed, as well as other cognitive and physical skills. 

 

How does Building Blocks support my child’s development? 

As a Curro Select school, our internally developed programme is designed with the Early Learning and Development Areas (ELDAs) in mind and aims to stimulate physical, social, emotional and cognitive well-being through developmental activities and engaging play areas. ELDAs focus on aspects such as gross motor development, fine-motor development, social awareness, communication, spatial awareness and arts.  

 

We encourage loose-parts play 

The development of curiosity and imagination in early childhood is vitally important to the development of problem-solving skills and critical thinking later on. Therefore, our nursery school encourages playing with loose-parts and multi-purpose playthings, rather than single-purpose toys that don’t involve much imagination. Through loose-parts play, children in our small class sizes use their natural curiosity to explore previously undiscovered fascinations such as stacking, rolling, sliding, fitting, colours, and more.

Building Blocks activities 

As a Curro Select school, we believe that participation in activities plays an important role in promoting social skills, self-confidence, and physical well-being. All our nursery school activities are offered as part of the daily programme and are aimed at early childhood development – all part of our affordable school fees.
