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 as well as a snack. We provide stimulating activities for children as well as quiet time to prevent exhaustion. Aftercare times can be viewed on our fact sheet.

 

Teachers have assistants

As a Curro School, our classes are divided by age group and each teacher has one or more assistants, depending on the group and the number of children in the class. There are often more assistants for the younger ones, all included in the affordable school fees, to ensure that each child in our small class sizes gets the necessary love and attention.

 

Teachers have first-aid training

Children wholeheartedly run, play, climb, and enjoy other physical activities that might sometimes lead to a minor fall or scrape. That’ s why designated teachers at our preschool have first-aid training and regularly attend courses to ensure their certificates and training remain valid.

 

Indoor and outdoor play areas

Children learn by interacting with the world around them. As a Curro School, 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.

Our outdoor play areas include jungle gyms, playhouses, shaded areas for creative and sensory play, 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.

 

On-site kitchen

As a Curro School, our on-site kitchen is fully equipped to prepare a well-balanced breakfast for children in all age groups at our preschool. All meals are prepared with fresh ingredients and individually wrapped just before being delivered to the classrooms. These meals are included in our affordable school fees and we carefully accommodate allergies and other dietary requirements – catering to individual needs is possible due to our small class sizes.

 

Learner support centre

Our learner support centre hosts the services of on-site occupational and speech therapists (primarily for preschool and foundation phase learners), and two educational psychologists (for all enrolled learners) who operate their private practice in this space. This team of therapists offer a very wide variety of services, including academic screenings, dyslexia assessments, assessments to determine concession needs, long-term play therapy, counselling, and so much more. Our speech therapist deals with concerns relating to pronunciation, auditory processing, letter and sound recognition, and several other foundational skills of reading and speaking. Furthermore, our occupational therapy team supports learners who struggle with physical, cognitive, or perceptual barriers that impact learners’ functioning in the classroom. The therapist team collaborate closely with teachers to recognise when a learner might benefit from the services of the team, parents are contacted via email with the relevant contact details, and the parent may then choose to further the discussion.

 

We are serious about security

We understand that your child’s safety is of the utmost importance. That is why security measures at our preschool include guarded gates, CCTV monitoring, and proper hand-sanitising protocols in line with COVID-19 protocols. If you have any concerns, you are welcome to reach out to us.
