Curro Castle Century City
Curro Castle Century City is an independent school in Century City, Cape Town that provides high-quality early childhood development for children from 4 years to 5 years with a focus on the ELDAs. Our small class sizes allow dedicated teachers to engage each child in our internally developed play-based curriculum and to build strong, caring relationships with each child.
Our school is on the same campus as Curro Century City, which allows children to easily progress from nursery school to primary school in a familiar environment, However, our building is separate from the primary and high school buildings to improve access control and ensure the children’s safety on the playground.
What do we offer?
At Curro Castle Century City we created a safe, nurturing centre of learning for children. Our carefully designed classrooms and engaging playgrounds encourage children to explore a wide variety of experiences through play and developmental activities, aimed at developing a curious mind and creative thinking.
We focus on the ELDAs
Our internally developed nursery school programme is designed with the Early Learning and Development Areas (ELDAs) in mind. The programme is designed to stimulate physical, social, emotional and cognitive well-being.
Our classes are divided by age group and each Group 4 and Group 5 teacher has a class assistant. Furthermore, our programme incorporates the latest research in physical and cognitive development, such as encouraging loose-parts play that boosts creativity and curiosity, above playing with single-purpose toys. The programme even includes activities built around large soft bricks that form the important early foundations for later Robotics studies.
Furthermore, our early drop-off times allow parents to drop their children at school from 07:00 and our aftercare service keeps children busy until 18:00.
Which activities do we offer?
We believe that participation in extramural activities plays an important role in promoting friendship and self-confidence in addition to physical and social well-being. 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.
How do we ensure safety in our school?
Our strict security measures ensure the safety of our children. Access to the campus is restricted through biometric access, while CCTV cameras monitor our reception area. Visitors need to sign in to gain access and the number of visitors per class is limited. Children are collected from the classroom and are signed in and out daily to ensure that they remain safe and accounted for.
