Curro Durbanville has a preschool in Sonstraal Heights, Durbanville, that provides high-quality early childhood development for children from 2 years to 5 years. Our classes are divided by age, and we carefully control the number of children per class to ensure that they are all cared for and entertained. Our preschool programme designed by Curro engages inherent curiosity and love of play, while supporting their well-being all-round. We also have an early drop-off time, half- and full-day options and we remain open during regular school holidays.

Our children learn through play

Children learn by discovering the world around them – and anything learned while playing at a young age is remembered much faster and more efficiently compared to anything learned while sitting at a table in a forced learning environment.

As part of the Curro school group, our children enjoy a programme that supports their physical, social, emotional and cognitive well-being. This approach to early childhood development is built around learning and developing through play rather than strict milestones. This means that children feel supported and encouraged instead of anxious and pressured to develop at someone else’s pace.

Learning during childhood starts with babies exploring their touch and taste sense while playing with squishy pasta, jelly, and other texture-rich objects. Later on, young toddlers learn the basics of mathematics by playing with building blocks, balls, manipulating objects around their bodies, and other ways. Older toddlers learn the basics of writing and reading with comprehension by drawing, painting, singing, and generally discovering objects that centre around a specific theme.

Here are some examples of the areas that are developed by learning through play:

  • Mathematics: shapes, size, time, counting, adding, subtracting
  • Communication: speech, listening, reading, understanding
  • Creativity: drawing, painting, correct pinching of a pencil, dancing
  • Physical well-being: balance, movement, safety
  • Identity and belonging: personality, morals, caring, friendship, sharing


As part of the Curro school, learners enjoy preference when applying to us from any school in the group. Other nearby preschools include Curro Brackenfell and Curro Rosen Castle, with Curro Burgundy and Curro Academy Sandown a bit further away.

How big are the classes

Children need lots of attention and nurturing. That is why our classes are divided by age, and we carefully control the number of children in each class. As part of the Curro school group, our teachers also have one or more assistants, depending on the age group and number of children in the class. By having a limited number of children in class, our teachers can give each one the individual care and attention they need to flourish and feel loved.


Activities your child can enjoy

Our daily programme is packed with a variety of physical and cognitive activities where children play while they learn. We also offer additional, optional extramural activities as additional opportunities to strengthen focused areas or hone certain skills. Our extramural activities are offered by external tutors or coaches at an additional cost and take place on the school’s premises.

As a preschool in Sonstraal Heights, Durbanville, these extramural activities are tailored to the interests of you and your family. This ensures that your child can grow and excel in areas that they truly enjoy. Your child is sure to find something that will pique their interest.

Our values

Our preschool is built on a balance of values that allow learners to learn and grow into the best versions of themselves. We believe that a good education is the basis on which learners can grow to become strong leaders and responsible citizens who will make a positive change in their communities.

Our value system is based on four pillars:

  • Child-friendliness
  • Positive discipline
  • Christian values (ethics and morals)
  • Creative thinking

We consider these values to be practical extensions of early childhood development. Teachers model these values and children follow suit. This is just one of the ways in which we develop the well-being of your child.
