Foundation phase: Grade R and Grade 1 (higher grades phasing in)
Grade R is the bridge from the tangible world to the world of symbols and numbers in Grade 1. Therefore, we focus on an integrated play-based programme that aims to develop the children’s phonological, literacy, mathematical, and creative problem-solving skills in a fun way. Learners also benefit from specialised offerings such as Robotics and chess, which boost young learners’ creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
In Grade 1 to Grade 3 we focus on teaching the basic skills, concepts and knowledge required for further learning. We offer a vibrant, invitational atmosphere where learners enjoy coming to school and where they acquire a love for learning that will sustain them throughout their school years. The three main learning areas are language, mathematics and life skills that include creative arts and physical education. We also create opportunities for personal growth so that learners can become personally responsible and accountable for their actions in the intermediate phase.
Learners from Grade 1 who need additional support are accommodated in our assisted learning stream.
