Curro Langebaan has a preschool in Langebaan along the West Coast. We offer a preschool programme for children from 3 months to Grade R in English and Afrikaans. This programme grants an excellent early childhood development that centres around a play-based approach, which means that children spend their days learning while having fun. We also have half- and full-day times, as well as an early drop-off time. Meals and snacks are included, and we remain open during 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 group, children enjoy preference when applying to us from any school in the group. Should your family locate to Langebaan we help you through the transfer or enrolment process so that your child can quickly feel at home with us.

 

We accommodate Grade R

We help your child get ready for the formal learning that starts in Grade 1. They learn the basic foundations on which all further learning is based:

  • Language (read, spell, understand, speak, listen)
  • Mathematics (count, understand numbers, addition, subtraction and multiplication)
  • Life skills (physical education, real-life experiences, problem-solving, creativity)

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 specialised activities, such as Playball and mini-sports as part of our school fees. Furthermore, we have a range of 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 Langebaan, 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.
