Curro Durbanville Preschool

Academics

Curro Durbanville has a preschool in Sonstraal Heights, Durbanville, that provides high-quality early childhood development for children from 3 years to 5 years. As a Curro School, we aim to provide a caring environment and small class sizes that allow our teachers to engage each child in our internally developed play-based curriculum as part of the school fees.

 

What do we offer?

At Curro Durbanville, we provide a safe, nurturing environment where children are cared for and engaged in play-based developmental activities. 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?

At our preschool, our internally developed programme is designed with the Early Learning and Development Areas (ELDAs) in mind. This approach to early childhood development aims to stimulate physical, social, emotional and cognitive well-being through developmental activities and engaging play areas, as part of our school fees. ELDAs focus on aspects such as gross motor development, fine motor development, social awareness, communication, spatial awareness and arts.

 

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, as a Curro School, 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 in our small class sizes, use their natural curiosity to explore previously undiscovered fascinations such as stacking, rolling, sliding, fitting, colours, and more.

Curro Durbanville activities

As a Curro School, we believe that children should enjoy lots of activities during early childhood development. That’s why our daily programme is packed with a variety of physical and cognitive activities where children play while they learn, which are included in our school fees. In addition, our children enjoy two extramural activities as part of our programme (at an additional cost), namely Music Box and Learn 2 Swim.

Furthermore, 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.
