Early drop-off service and aftercare
We accommodate working parents by allowing children to be dropped off at our nursery school early in the morning (from 07:00) as part of our affordable school fees and children are kept safe and entertained at our aftercare until 17:30.
Our nursery school is open during school holidays and runs a holiday-club programme as part of the affordable school fees for aftercare. Regular early childhood development activities continue within small class sizes, although we may arrange some extra fun activities during this time. We are closed only for specified periods.
Parents may arrange sessions for their children with an occupational therapist, speech therapist or counsellor at an additional cost – as well as an in-house psychologist (at no additional cost).
Teachers have first-aid training
Our security measures include guarded gates, CCTV monitoring and proper hand-sanitising protocols. All teachers also have first-aid training.
As a Curro Castle, our menu provides well-balanced, wholesome meals which are freshly prepared in our on-site kitchen just before being delivered to the classrooms, and we carefully accommodate allergies and other dietary requirements.
Indoor and outdoor play areas
As a Curro Castle, we believe children learn by interacting with the world around them. Therefore, as part of our commitment to early childhood development, 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.
We encourage children to play
Our outdoor play areas include jungle gyms, play houses, shaded areas for creative and sensory play, and more. Children in our small class sizes 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.
