We are closed during the holidays, but run a full holiday programme at an additional cost. The same quality of early childhood development activities continue, although we may arrange some extra fun activities during this time.
Teachers have assistants
As a Curro School, 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 school fees, to ensure that each child in our small class sizes gets the necessary love and attention.
As a Curro School, our on-site kitchen is fully equipped to prepare well-balanced, wholesome meals and snacks for children in all age groups at our preschool. All meals are prepared with fresh ingredients just before being delivered to the classrooms. These meals are included in our school fees and we carefully accommodate allergies and other dietary requirements – catering to individual needs is possible due to our small class sizes.
Indoor and outdoor play areas
At our preschool, children learn by interacting with the world around them. As a Curro School, our classrooms themselves are considered to be inanimate teachers of sorts to support early childhood development. 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.
Our outdoor play areas include jungle gyms, playhouses, shaded areas for 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.
