Curro Heritage House has a preschool in Morningside, Durban, that provides high-quality early childhood development for children from 3 months to 5 years. Our small class sizes and carefully set school fees allow our dedicated teachers to engage each child in our internally developed play-based curriculum, and build strong, caring relationships with each child.
What do we offer?
At our Curro School, we provide a safe, nurturing environment in which children are cared for and engaged in play-based developmental activities. Our school fees make it possible for our classrooms to be designed to encourage educational curiosity, while our playgrounds are equipped with play structures that inspire physical development through movement and play. Our small class sizes are divided by age group, which allows our teachers to spend quality time with each child.
How do we support your child’s development?
At our preschool, 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, our preschool encourages playing with loose-parts and multi-purpose playthings, rather than single-purpose toys that don’t involve much imagination. Through loose-parts play, children at our Curro School use their natural curiosity to explore previously undiscovered fascinations, such as stacking, rolling, sliding, fitting, colours and more. This well-developed approach is made possible by our school fees.

Curro Heritage House activities
As a Curro School, we believe that participation in extramural activities plays an important role in early childhood development. Our daily programme is packed with a variety of physical and cognitive activities where children play while they learn, which are included in our affordable school fees. Extramural activities are offered 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.
