Facilities

We are open during holidays

Our preschool remains open during school holidays and we run a full holiday-care programme at no additional cost. Regular 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

Our classes are divided by age group and each teacher has one or more assistants, depending on the group and the number of children in the class. There are often more assistants for the younger ones, all included in the school fees, to ensure that each child in our small class sizes gets the necessary love and attention.

 

Teachers have first-aid training

Children wholeheartedly run, play, and climb which sometimes lead to slight bumps and falls. That is why all teachers and teacher’s assistants have first-aid training.

 

Indoor and outdoor play areas

Children learn by interacting with the world around them. That is why our preschool 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 that the weather doesn’t allow outdoor play.

Our outdoor play areas include jungle gyms, playhouses, shaded areas for creative and sensory 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.

 

Meals are included

Our school fees include breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack. These meals are freshly prepared for children in all age groups at our preschool. We also carefully accommodate allergies and other dietary requirements – catering to individual needs is possible due to our small class sizes.

 

Representative Parent Committee (RPC)

We encourage parents to play a role in managing our school through a duly-elected Representative Parent Committee (RPC). As the name indicates, the RPC’s role is strictly to represent parents and to provide advice – they do not make and enforce decisions regarding school matters. The committee comprises of parents of current learners. Our RPC acts as liaison between the school and parents, raise funds through specific events throughout the year and host social and fellowship events. Through the RPC, parents can share their input in a structured manner to the benefit of the learners and school; as a community they can, therefore, be involved in the operational success of the school.
