  • Positive Relationships: Curro Castle Hermanus children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and or a key person (educator).
  • Learning and Development: Our children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates and all areas of learning and development are equally important and are inter-connected.
  • Enabling Environments: Our environment plays a key role in supporting and extending a child’s development and learning.
