Curro Castle Langebaan
Curro Castle Langebaan is an independent school in Langebaan, along the West Coast, that provides high-quality early childhood development in English and Afrikaans for children from 3 months to 5 years with a focus on the ELDAs. Our small class sizes based on age allow our 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 Langebaan, which allows children to easily progress from nursery school to primary school in a familiar environment.
What do we offer?
At Curro Castle Langebaan, we created a safe, nurturing centre of learning. Our carefully designed classrooms and 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 also accommodate Grade R learners in our Castle. 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 our Grade R offering.
Children can be dropped off early in the morning (from 07:00) and may remain in class – or at aftercare – until parents pick them up. We remain open during school holidays and accommodate children of visitors, such as family members or tourists, to be entertained at an additional cost.
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 through developmental activities and engaging play areas.
Our classes are divided by age group, and each teacher has one or more teacher’s assistants, depending on the number of children in the class. Furthermore, our programme incorporates the latest research in physical and cognitive development, such as encouraging loose-parts play that boost 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.
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. We also offer swimming safety classes for children from Group 4.
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 the playgrounds as well as classrooms. 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.
