Curro Rosen Castle
Curro Rosen Castle is a nursery school in Tyger Valley, Cape Town, accommodating learners from 3 months to 6 years. As Curro’s first Castle, we pride ourselves on setting the standard for high-quality, holistic early childhood development. From January 2020, we will be the first school in South Africa to fully implement the internationally successful Curiosity Approach – a revolutionary early childhood development philosophy aimed at allowing children’s natural curiosity and interests guide the learning experience.
What is the Curiosity Approach?
The Curiosity Approach incorporates the importance of uninterrupted play as a method of learning, by letting a child’s natural curiosity and interests guide the learning experience. This involves a re-conceptualised indoor and outdoor environment, loose-parts play areas, a sensory playground and real-life objects to explore, rather than unimaginative, single-purpose toys.
Although learning revolves around ‘play’, each age group follows a programme delivered in both English and Afrikaans, that ranges from language, maths and arts to science and technology. During the day, children are exposed to many enriching activities and problem-solving opportunities, enabling them to be well-prepared for the challenges of Grade 1.
Which activities do we offer?
At Curro Rosen Castle we recognise the critical importance of developing the whole child while still in their early years. With this in mind, all children from Group 3 to Grade R benefit from participating in several extramural activities as part of the programme. Children in Group 1 and Group 2 may participate in one swimming lesson a week, if accompanied by a parent or guardian in the swimming pool.
