Curro Waterfall has a preschool in Waterfall City, Midrand, that provides high-quality early childhood development for children from 2 years (turning 3) to 5 years. As part of the Curro school group, our classes are divided by age, and we carefully control the number of children per class to ensure that they are all cared for and entertained. Our internally developed preschool programme focuses on letting children play, laugh, and enjoy their childhoods while progressing through their early development areas. We also have half-day and full-day options and early drop-off times to accommodate your household’s schedule.

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

How big are the 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 be no more than 22 to 25 (based on age). As part of the Curro school group, our teachers also have one or more assistants, depending on the age group and number of children in the class. By having a limited number of children in class, our teachers can give each one the individual care and attention they need to flourish and feel loved.

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.

As a preschool in Waterfall City, Midrand, 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.
