Curro Castle Serengeti

Academics

Curro Castle Serengeti is an independent nursery school adjacent to the Serengeti Golf and Wildlife Estate in Kempton Park, Ekurhuleni, 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 Serengeti, which allows children to easily progress from nursery school to primary school in a familiar environment.  

What does Curro Castle Serengeti offer?

At Curro Castle Serengeti, 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 Serengeti 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 Serengeti activities

As a Curro Castle we believe that participation in activities plays an important role in promoting social skills, self-confidence, and physical well-being. Some activities, such as Wiggle and Jam (Groups 1 and 2) and Penguin Play (Groups 3 to 5) are included in the affordable school fees while others are offered by external tutors or coaches at an additional cost and generally take place on the nursery school’s premises.
