Meridian Pinehurst Nursery School

Academics

Meridian Pinehurst’s nursery school is an independent Meridian school in Pinehurst, Durbanville that provides early childhood development for children from 3 months to 5 years. Our controlled class sizes allow our dedicated teachers to engage each child in our internally developed play-based curriculum and to build strong, caring relationships with each child, at affordable school fees.

As a Meridian school, our school is managed by Curro as part of a joint venture with Old Mutual.

 

What does Meridian Pinehurst’s nursery school offer?

At Meridian Pinehurst’s nursery school, 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 at affordable school fees that stretches beyond the classroom.

 

How does Meridian Pinehurst’s nursery school support my child’s development?

As a Curro-managed 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. 

Curiosity and imagination are vitally important for early childhood development and promote problem-solving skills and critical thinking later on. Therefore, 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 use their natural curiosity to explore previously undiscovered fascinations such as stacking, rolling, sliding, fitting, colours, and more.

Meridian Pinehurst activities

As a Curro-managed Meridian school, we believe that participation in extramural activities plays an important role in promoting social skills, self-confidence, and physical well-being. Therefore, we offer a variety of extramural activities. They are offered by external tutors or coaches at a cost additional to our affordable school fees and take place on the school’s premises. Many of our activities are designed to help learners learn valuable skills that require more time for development than can be provided during the daily programme.
