St Dominics Newcastle Nursery School


St Dominics Newcastle’s nursery school is an independent nursery school situated in a quiet, residential area of Newcastle, KwaZulu-Natal. We provide high-quality early childhood development for children from 2 years to 5 years. As a Curro Select school, our small class sizes allow our dedicated teachers to engage each child in our internally developed play-based curriculum and build strong, caring relationships with each child.


What does St Dominics Newcastle offer?

At St Dominics Newcastle’s nursery school, we provide a safe, nurturing environment where children are cared for and engaged in play-based developmental activities. As a Curro Select school, our small class sizes are designed to encourage educational curiosity, while our playgrounds are equipped with play structures that inspire physical development through movement and play.


How does St Dominics Newcastle support my child’s early childhood development?

Our internally developed nursery school 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

By incorporating the latest research in physical and cognitive development, our carefully designed playgrounds, small class sizes, safety measures and daily programmes create a safe and fun-filled home away from home.


Special school fees for siblings

Do you have more than one child? We accommodate families through an exclusive school fees offer for siblings of enrolled children. Refer to our school fees letter (see Downloads) for more information and specific fees.

St Dominics Newcastle activities

As a Curro Select school, we believe that participation in extramural activities plays an important role in promoting social skills, self-confidence and physical well-being. These activities are offered by external tutors or coaches at an additional cost, and generally take place on the school’s premises. Some extramural activities, such as ballet, are aimed at improving or supporting academic learning or mental and physical development, while others are purely recreational.
