Curro Heuwelkruin Preschool

Academics

Curro Heuwelkruin is an independent school with a preschool phase in Myngenoegen, Polokwane. We provide high-quality early childhood development for children from 2 years to 5 years. Our school fees include an internally developed programme, wholesome meals and snacks, staff with first-aid training, and dedicated teachers with teacher’s assistants.

 

What do we offer?

At our preschool, we provide a safe, nurturing environment where children are cared for and engaged in play-based developmental activities. Through competitive 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?

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. Rather than emphasising strict milestones, these 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, 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 at our Curro School use their natural curiosity to explore previously undiscovered fascinations, such as stacking, rolling, sliding, fitting, colours and more.

 

We are Robotics inclusive

Our programme includes activities built around playing with large soft bricks. This forms the important early foundations for Robotics studies offered from Group 5 onwards and is included in our school fees. Beyond preparing children for further learning, playing with large soft bricks develops spatial awareness, shape recognition, stacking, and other previously undiscovered fascinations.

 

Curro Heuwelkruin activities

We believe that participation in extramural activities plays an important role in 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. Our extramural activities are offered as additional opportunities to strengthen focused areas or hone certain skills. These activities are offered by external tutors or coaches at an additional cost and take place on the school’s premises.
