Curro Castle Mossel Bay

Academics

Curro Castle Mossel Bay is an independent nursery school, in Mossel Bay, on the Garden Route, that provides high-quality early childhood development in English and Afrikaans for children from 4 months to 5 years with a focus on the ELDAs. Our small class sizes based on age allow our dedicated teachers to engage each child in our internally developed play-based curriculum at affordable school fees and to build strong, caring relationships with each child. We also accommodate Grade R learners in our Castle. However, as their daily activities and programmes are built in to the foundation phase of primary school, please refer to our primary school webpage for information on our Grade R offering.

 

What does Curro Castle Mossel Bay offer?

At Curro Castle Mossel Bay, we lay the foundation for your child’s future social and academic life by incorporating play in stimulating, developmental activities such as creative movement and artistic expression. By involving you as parents in your child’s learning experience, we provide a holistic development programme within small class sizes at affordable school fees that stretches beyond the classroom.

 

How does Curro Castle Mossel Bay support my child’s early childhood development?

As a Curro Castle our internally developed nursery school 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 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, as a Curro Castle 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 in our small class sizes use their natural curiosity to explore previously undiscovered fascinations such as stacking, rolling, sliding, fitting, colours, and more.

Curro Castle Mossel Bay activities

As a Curro Castle we believe that participation in extramural activities plays an important role in promoting social skills, self-confidence, and physical well-being. They are offered by external tutors or coaches at a cost additional to our affordable school fees and take place on the nursery school’s premises.
