Curro Nelspruit Preschool

Academics

Curro Nelspruit has a preschool situated in the tranquil hills of The Rest Nature Estate, Nelspruit (Mbombela) that provides high-quality early childhood development in English and Afrikaans, for children from 4 months to 5 years. With a focus on the ELDAs approach, our small class sizes are divided by age, which allows our dedicated teachers to build strong, lasting relationships with each child. Our Group 5 class is at the primary school, but they follow our preschool programme and are therefore included here. Our school is on the same campus our primary school and high school, which allows children to easily progress from preschool to primary school in a familiar environment.

 

What do we offer?

We lay the foundation for your child’s future social and academic life by incorporating play in stimulating, developmental activities, such as creative movement and artistic expression. By involving you, as parents, in your child’s learning experience, we provide a holistic development programme within small class sizes at affordable school fees that stretches beyond the classroom.

 

How do we support your child’s early childhood development?

As a Curro School, 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, as a Curro School we encourage playing with loose-parts and multi-purpose playthings, rather than single-purpose toys that don’t involve much imagination. Through loose-parts play, children in our small class sizes use their natural curiosity to explore previously undiscovered fascinations, such as stacking, rolling, sliding, fitting, colours and more.

Activities at our school

As a Curro School we believe that participation in extramural activities plays an important role in promoting social skills, self-confidence and physical well-being. Our daily programme is packed with a variety of physical and cognitive activities where children play while they learn. Extramural activities are offered as additional opportunities to strengthen focused areas or hone certain skills. These activities are offered by external tutors or coaches at an additional cost to our affordable school fees, and take place on the school’s premises.
