Teachers have assistants
As a Curro School, our classes are divided by age group and teachers in younger groups have assistants to help in class during the day. The number of assistants may differ based on the age group, number of children in the class, and the school’s teacher-to-child ratio (which is also age-dependent). 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.
Children wholeheartedly run, climb, and play in ways that could sometimes lead to bumps and scrapes. They might also fall ill during the day. This is why designated teachers have first-aid training and regularly attend courses to ensure their certificates and training remain valid. This service is included in our school fees.
National regulations state that teachers may not dispense any medicine, even over-the-counter or herbal tonics, without a valid prescription signed by a medical doctor. Therefore, when a child needs medicine during the day, our first-aid officers or nurse dispense medicine in class only if a valid prescription is provided.
Indoor and outdoor play areas
Children learn by interacting with the world around them. As a Curro School, 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.
Our outdoor preschool 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.
How do we ensure safety in our school?
As a Curro School, our strict security measures ensure the safety of our children. Access to the campus is restricted by a boom and security guard. Visitors need to sign in to gain access, the number of visitors per class is limited, and children are collected from the classroom.
