Early drop-off times
Our nursery school accommodates working parents by opening early in the morning (07:15). Furthermore, children are kept safe and entertained in class until they can be picked up by 17:00.
Our nursery school remains open during the mid-year holiday, as part of our school fees. Regular activities continue in small class sizes, although we may arrange some extra fun activities during this time. We are closed during other regular school holidays.
Our on-site kitchen is fully equipped to prepare well-balanced, wholesome lunches and puddings for children in all age groups, as per our predetermined menu. All meals are prepared with fresh ingredients just before being delivered to the classrooms and we carefully accommodate allergies and other dietary requirements.
Teachers have assistants
As a Curro Castle, our classes are divided by age group and teachers' assistants help in each class, depending on the group and the number of children in the class, as part of our school fees. By having more than one person in class, we ensure that each child in our small class sizes gets the necessary love and attention.
We have a registered nurse on-site during the school day, and all teachers have first-aid training.
Indoor and outdoor play areas
Children learn by interacting with the world around them. As a Curro Castle, 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 when the weather doesn’t allow outdoor play.
Our outdoor nursery school play areas include jungle gyms, a sand pit, 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.
