Select a category


Curro Midrand San Ridge is a preschool in Carlswald, Midrand. We offer a preschool programme designed by the Curro school group, which grants an excellent early childhood development for children from 3 years to 5 years. We carefully control the number of children per class to ensure that they are all cared for and entertained. We also have half-day and full-day options, as well as an early drop-off time and transport within the Midrand area.

We are closely affiliated with nearby Curro Midrand Halfway Gardens and Curro Midrand Sagewood. Our children automatically progress to either of these schools, unless they choose to attend another school in the group.

Why is it best for children to 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. We are closely affiliated with nearby Curro Midrand Halfway Gardens and Curro Midrand Sagewood and our children automatically progress to either one of these schools. Other nearby primary schools in the group include Curro Waterfall, Curro Thatchfield, Curro Rivonia, The King’s School Linbro Park, Curro Academy Riverside and Curro Academy Clayville.


What happens during the day?

Our preschool programme is presented through a daily routine that focuses on letting children learn by having lots of fun within a framework. The day starts with breakfast and a morning ring where we say hi to our friends and set the tone for the day. This is followed by arts and crafts, dancing, singing, free play, set times for naps and snacks, and so much more! This routine helps us to ensure a whole-rounded development and  provides children with stability and a sense of safety.


How big are our 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 to no more than 15 to 25, based on age. Our teachers also have one or more assistants, depending on the age group and number of children in the class. By balancing the number of children and teachers in class, your child gets the individual care and attention they need to feel loved and flourish during their early childhood development journey.

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.
