Curro Brackenfell has a preschool in Sonkring, the suburban heart of Brackenfell. We offer a preschool programme designed by Curro that grants an excellent early childhood development for children from 3 months to 5 years old. We have English and Afrikaans classes, an early drop-off time, a weekly theme that has many fun activities, and we are open during the holidays! Our teachers also have assistants in each class and have termly one-on-one meetings with parents.

Our children learn through play

Children learn by discovering the world around them – and anything learned while playing at a young age is remembered much faster and more efficiently compared to anything learned while sitting at a table in a forced learning environment.

As part of the Curro school group, our children enjoy a programme that supports their physical, social, emotional and cognitive well-being. This approach to early childhood development is built around learning and developing through play rather than strict milestones. This means that children feel supported and encouraged instead of anxious and pressured to develop at someone else’s pace.

Learning during childhood starts with babies exploring their touch and taste sense while playing with squishy pasta, jelly, and other texture-rich objects. Later on, young toddlers learn the basics of mathematics by playing with building blocks, balls, manipulating objects around their bodies, and other ways. Older toddlers learn the basics of writing and reading with comprehension by drawing, painting, singing, and generally discovering objects that centre around a specific theme.

Here are some examples of the areas that are developed by learning through play:

  • Mathematics: shapes, size, time, counting, adding, subtracting
  • Communication: speech, listening, reading, understanding
  • Creativity: drawing, painting, correct pinching of a pencil, dancing
  • Physical well-being: balance, movement, safety
  • Identity and belonging: personality, morals, caring, friendship, sharing


As part of the Curro school group, learners enjoy preference when applying to us from any school in the group. Nearby schools that also have preschools include Curro Durbanville , Curro Rosen Castle, and Meridian Pinehurst, with Curro Century City, Curro Burgundy and Curro Academy Sandown a bit further away.


We lay the foundation for Robotics

Our primary school has a very strong Robotics programme, as a subject in our curriculum and as an extramural activity. Robotics does more than teach coding and programming. It teaches critical thinking, problem solving, perseverance, team work, and many more soft skills that benefit your child far beyond the classroom.

This is why our 5-year olds have Robotics as part of their daily programmes. This revolves around playing with blocks to create a ‘robot’ of sorts, and following a sequence of steps to make the robot character come to life. This process introduces to them the realisation that  on-screen actions have real-life impacts.

Activities your child can enjoy

Our daily programme is packed with a variety of physical and cognitive activities where children play while they learn. We also offer additional, optional extramural activities as additional opportunities to strengthen focused areas or hone certain skills. Our extramural activities are offered by external tutors or coaches at an additional cost and take place on the school’s premises.

As a preschool in Sonkring, Brackenfell, these extramural activities are tailored to the interests of you and your family. This ensures that your child can grow and excel in areas that they truly enjoy. Your child is sure to find something that will pique their interest.
