Our aftercare service is available at an additional cost, as stipulated on our fees letter. Children are accommodated in safe classrooms and playgrounds, and the fees include a freshly prepared meal as well as a snack. Aftercare times can be viewed on our fact sheet.
Our school runs a full holiday care programme during school holidays, at no additional cost. Regular nursery school activities would continue, although we may arrange some extra fun activities during this time. We are closed only for a specified period as indicated on our calendar (see Downloads).
Teachers have assistants
As a Curro Castle, our classes are divided by age group and each teacher has one or more assistants, depending on the group and the number of children in the class. There are often more assistants for the younger ones, all included in the affordable school fees, to ensure that each child in our small class sizes get the necessary love and attention.
We have a registered nurse on-site during the school day. Furthermore, as a Curro Castle, 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 that the weather doesn’t allow outdoor play.
Outdoor play areas at our nursery school include jungle gyms, play houses, 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.
Our on-site kitchen is fully equipped to prepare well-balanced, wholesome lunch 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. These meals are included in our affordable school fees, and having small class sizes makes it possible for teachers to ensure that each child enjoys their meals.
