Curro Westbrook Preschool

Academics

Curro Westbrook has an independent preschool in the Westbrook Estate, Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth), 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, with affordable school fees, and build strong, caring relationships with each child. Our school is on the same campus as our primary and high schools, which allows children to easily progress from preschool to primary school in a familiar environment.

What do we offer?

At Curro Westbrook, 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, which 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 Westbrook activities

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. These are offered by external tutors or coaches, at costs in addition to our affordable school fees, and take place on the preschool premises.
