Curro Castle Mount Richmore

Academics

Curro Castle Mount Richmore is an independent nursery school in Salt Rock, Ballito, that provides high-quality early childhood development for children from 3 months to 5 years, with a focus on the ELDAs. Our small class sizes 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. Our school is on the same campus as Curro Mount Richmore, which allows children to easily progress from nursery school to primary school in a familiar environment.  

 

What does Curro Castle Mount Richmore offer?

At Curro Castle Mount Richmore, 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/guardians, 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 Mount Richmore support my child’s early childhood development?

As a Curro Castle, 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 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 Mount Richmore 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. These activities are offered by external tutors or coaches at a cost in addition to our affordable school fees, and generally take place on the nursery school’s premises.
