Curro Castle Bryanston

Academics

Curro Castle Bryanston is an independent nursery school in Bryanston, Johannesburg, that provides quality early childhood development for children from 3 months to Grade R. As a Curro Castle, we aim to provide affordable school fees and small class sizes. Our internally-developed play-based curriculum ensures that curiosity and learning are encouraged in each child’s personal development.

 

What do we offer?

At Curro Castle Bryanston, we provide a safe, nurturing environment where children are cared for and engaged in play-based developmental activities. Through affordable school fees, our classrooms are designed to encourage educational curiosity, while our playgrounds are equipped with play structures that inspire physical development through movement and play. Our small class sizes are divided by age group, which allows our teachers to spend quality time with each child.

 

We specialise in caring for babies

Our classes are separated based on age, and our uniquely equipped baby hub accommodates babies from 3 months to 24 months. With dedicated teachers, teacher’s assistants, and an on-site kitchen, the babies in our care are loved and nurtured in a home away from home.

 

How do we support your child’s development?

At our nursery school, our internally developed programme is designed with the Early Learning and Development Areas (ELDAs) in mind. This approach to early childhood development 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 focus on early childhood development through the ELDAs

As a Curro Castle, we incorporate the latest research in physical and cognitive development. Our small class sizes, carefully-designed playgrounds, safety measures and daily programmes make our nursery school a safe and fun-filled home away from home.

 

We accommodate Grade R learners

Grade R is the bridge from the tangible world to the world of symbols and numbers in Grade 1. Therefore, we focus on an integrated play-based programme that aims to develop the children’s phonological, literacy, mathematical, and creative problem-solving skills in a fun way that will ensure they are well prepared for primary school. Learners are also introduced to specialised offerings such as Robotics through Duplo Lego, which boosts their creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

As we are part of the Curro group, our Grade R learners enjoy preference when applying to any school in the Curro group, particularly nearby Curro Rivonia.

Curro Castle Bryanston activities

As a Curro Castle, we believe that participation in extramural activities plays an important role in early childhood development. Our daily programme is packed with a variety of physical and cognitive activities where children play while they learn, which are included in our affordable school fees. Extramural activities are offered 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.
