Northriding College Pre-primary School


Northriding Pre-primary is an independent nursery school in Northriding, Randburg, that provides high-quality early childhood development for children from 2 years to 6 years. As a Curro Select school, our small class sizes based on age allow our dedicated teachers to engage each child in our internally developed play-based curriculum supported by competitive school fees 

Our school is affiliated with Sharonlea Childcare and Pre-primary, which is another Curro Select school specialising in early childhood development. 


What do we offer? 

We provide a safe, nurturing environment where children are cared for and engaged in play-based developmental activities. Through competitive school fees, our classrooms are designed to encourage educational curiosity, while our playgrounds are equipped with play structures that inspire physical development through movement and play. With small class sizes, dedicated teachers, and teacher’s assistants, we provide a safe, home away from home.  


How do we support your child’s development? 

At our nursery school, our internally developed programme is designed with the Early Learning and Development Areas (ELDAs) in mind and 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 focus on early childhood development through the ELDAs  

As a Curro Select school, we incorporate the latest research in physical and cognitive development, Our small class sizes, carefully-designed playgrounds, safety measures and daily programmes create a safe and fun-filled home away from home. 


We accommodate Grade R learners 

We also accommodate Grade R learners in our nursery school. However, as their daily activities and programmes are built in to the foundation phase of primary school, please refer to our primary school webpage for information on what we offer in Grade R. 

See what we offer on our fact sheet (see Downloads). 


Northriding Pre-primary activities 

As a Curro Select school, we believe that participation in extramural activities plays an important role in early childhood development. Our daily programme is packed with a variety of physical and cognitive activities where children play while they learn – all included in our competitive school fees. Extramural activities, however, are offered 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.
