Half-day and full-day options, and early drop-off times

At our preschool, we accommodate your needs by having half-day and full-day options for enrolment. Breakfast, lunch and a mid-morning snack are served to all children, while those attending the full-day option enjoy a mid-afternoon snack – all included in our affordable school fees. In addition, you can drop your children off from early in the morning and they are cared for in their regular class under the supervision of their known and beloved teacher.


Holiday care

Our preschool is open during school holidays and we run a full holiday-care programme as part of our affordable school fees. Regular early childhood development activities continue, although we may arrange some extra fun activities during this time. We are closed only for a specified period during December and January.


Teachers have assistants

As a Curro Academy school, our classes are divided by age group and each teacher has one or more assistants, depending on the group. There are often more assistants for the younger ones, to ensure that each child in our small class sizes gets the necessary love and attention.


Teachers have first-aid training

Children wholeheartedly run, climb, and play in ways that could sometimes lead to bumps and scrapes. They might also fall ill during the day. That is why all our teachers have first-aid training and regularly attend training sessions to ensure their certificates remain valid and that they stay up to date with the latest protocols – all part of our affordable school fees.


On-site kitchen

As a Curro Academy school, our on-site kitchen is fully equipped to prepare well-balanced, wholesome meals and snacks for children in all age groups. All meals are prepared with fresh ingredients just before being delivered to the classrooms, and we carefully accommodate allergies and other dietary requirements. Catering to individual needs is possible due to our small class sizes.


Indoor and outdoor play areas

Children learn by interacting with the world around them. Therefore, as part of our commitment to early childhood development, our classrooms themselves are considered to be inanimate teachers of sorts. They are designed to allow maximum room for play and movement while being stimulating on a visual and tactile level. An additional indoor play area allows a change in play space on days when the weather doesn’t allow outdoor play, and includes a fantasy room.


We encourage children to play

As a Curro Academy school, our outdoor play areas include jungle gyms, playhouses, see-saws, shaded areas for sensory and creative play, and more. These areas are designed to encourage physical play, and generally have synthetic grass to prevent allergic reactions. Children are taken outside to play on days with moderate weather conditions, to prevent excessive cold or sunburn. Additional safety measures are taken on sunny days.
