Curro Castle Waterfall
Curro Castle Waterfall is an independent nursery school adjacent to Waterfall Country Estate, Midrand, that provides high-quality early childhood development for children from 2 years 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 nursery school is designed to accommodate the specific needs of the children in our care.
What does Curro Castle Waterfall offer?
At Curro Castle Waterfall, 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. Furthermore, children in Group 5 follow a phonological awareness programme that teaches language skills and phonological awareness in a manner befitting their age.
How does Curro Castle Waterfall 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 Waterfall 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. Therefore, we offer different activities as value-adds, part of the affordable school fees, that vary according to the age group.
