Curro Serengeti Preschool

Academics

Curro Serengeti is an independent preschool adjacent to the Serengeti Golf and Wildlife Estate in Kempton Park, Ekurhuleni, that provides high-quality early childhood development for children from 3 months to 5 years with a focus on the ELDAs. Our small class sizes allow our dedicated teachers to engage each child in our internally developed play-based curriculum at affordable school fees and to build strong, caring relationships with each child. Our school is on the same campus our primary and high school which allows children to easily progress from preschool to primary school in a familiar environment. 

 

What do we offer?

At Curro Serengeti, 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.

Curro Serengeti activities

As a Curro School we believe that participation in activities plays an important role in promoting social skills, self-confidence, and physical well-being. Our day’s programme is packed with activities that support physical and cognitive development that are included in our affordable school fees. However, some activities require more focused attention than can be provided during the day. Therefore, we host a variety of extramural activities that are hosted by external tutors or coaches at an additional cost and generally take place on the preschool’s premises.
