Academics

Curro Castle Heuwelkruin is an independent nursery school in Myngenoegen, Polokwane, that provides high-quality early childhood development for children from 2 years to 5 years. Our small class sizes and competitive school fees allow our dedicated teachers to engage each child in our internally developed play-based curriculum and build strong, caring relationships with each child.  

 

What do we offer? 

At our Curro Castle, we provide a safe, nurturing environment where children are cared for and engaged in play-based developmental activities. Through competitive 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. 

 

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. Children also benefit from activities built around large soft bricks that form the important early foundations for later Robotics studies. 

 

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, we encourage playing with loose-parts and multi-purpose playthings, rather than single-purpose toys that don’t involve much imagination. Through loose-parts play, children at our Curro Castle use their natural curiosity to explore previously undiscovered fascinations, such as stacking, rolling, sliding, fitting, colours and more. This well-developed approach is made possible by our competitive school fees

 

Curro Castle Heuwelkruin activities 

At Curro Castle Heuwelkruin, we believe that participation in extramural activities plays an important role in promoting social skills, self-confidence, and physical well-being. Our focused range of extramural activities is offered by private tutors or coaches, at an additional cost, and generally takes place on the school’s premises.
