Curro Academy Wilgeheuwel Preschool

Academics

Curro Academy Wilgeheuwel has a preschool phase in Wilgeheuwel, Roodepoort, that provides high-quality early childhood development for children from 3 years to 5 years. As a Curro Academy school, we aim to provide affordable school fees and small class sizes that engage each child in our internally developed play-based curriculum.

 

What do we offer?

We provide a safe, nurturing environment where children are cared for and engaged in play-based developmental activities. Through affordable school fees, our classrooms are designed to encourage educational curiosity, while our playgrounds are equipped with play structures that inspire physical development through movement and play. Our small class sizes are divided by age group, which allows our teachers to spend quality time with each child.

 

How do we support your child’s development?

Our internally developed preschool programme is designed with the Early Learning and Development Areas (ELDAs) in mind. This approach to aims to stimulate physical, social, emotional and cognitive well-being through developmental activities and engaging play areas. ELDAs focus on aspects such as gross motor development, fine motor development, social awareness, communication, spatial awareness and arts. The main learning areas are language, mathematics, and life skills, which provide children in our small class sizes with a gradually increasing foundation for future learning.

 

We encourage loose-parts play

The development of curiosity and imagination in early childhood is vitally important to the development of problem-solving skills and critical thinking later on. Therefore, at our preschool, we encourage playing with loose-parts and multi-purpose playthings, rather than single-purpose toys that don’t involve much imagination. Through loose-parts play, children use their natural curiosity to explore previously undiscovered fascinations such as stacking, rolling, sliding, fitting, colours, and more.

Activities at our school

As a Curro Academy school, we believe that participation in extramural activities plays an important role in early childhood development. Our daily programme is packed with a variety of physical and cognitive activities where children play while they learn. Extramural activities are offered as additional opportunities to strengthen focused areas or hone certain skills. Our extramural activities are offered by external tutors or coaches at an additional cost and take place on the school’s premises.
