Curro Heuwelkruin has a preschool in Myngenoegen, Polokwane, that provides high-quality early childhood development for children from 2 years to 5 years. Our classes are divided by age, and we limit the number of children per class to ensure that they are all cared for and entertained. Your child spends their days enjoying our preschool programme by playing, laughing, dancing, and learning while having lots of fun! We also have half-day and full-day options as well as an early drop-off time to accommodate your family’s schedule.
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:
Unique, specialised activities
We offer several specialised activities in addition to the ones that take place as part of our preschool programme. These include introduction and later on skills development in music, ballet, tennis, hockey, and more! The specialised activities are offered by private tutors and coaches, and are included in our school fees.
How big are the classes
Children need lots of attention and nurturing. That is why our classes are divided by age, and there are no more than 15 children per class, based on age. As part of the Curro school group, our teachers also have one or more assistants in each class, depending on the age group and number of children in the class. By balancing the number of children and teachers in class, your child can get the individual care and attention they need to flourish and feel loved.
As part of the Curro school group, learners enjoy preference when applying to us from any school in the group. Curro families who move to Polokwane can also easily transfer from their current school to ours! Visit this page on our website to find schools near us.
Activities your child can enjoy
In addition to the activities that take place as part of our preschool programme, we also offer additional, optional extramural activities as additional opportunities to strengthen focused areas or hone certain skills. These 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.
