Curro Midrand Sagewood has an independent preschool in Midrand, Johannesburg, that provides high-quality early childhood development for children from 4 years to 5 years. Our small class sizes and competitive school fees allow our dedicated teachers to engage each child in our internally developed play-based curriculum and to build strong, caring relationships with each child.
Our school is affiliated with Building Blocks Pre-primary, which is a nearby Curro Select school specialising in early childhood development. Also, our learners may choose to attend primary school at Curro Midrand Halfway Gardens, a Curro school with which we are also affiliated.
What do we offer?
At Curro Midrand Sagewood, 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. ELDAs focus on aspects such as gross motor development, fine motor development, social awareness, communication, spatial awareness and arts. Learners also benefit from activities built around large soft bricks (as part of our school fees) that form the important early foundations for later Robotics studies.
We encourage loose-parts play
As part of a Curro school, we believe that 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 in early childhood development, children use their natural curiosity to explore previously undiscovered fascinations such as stacking, rolling, sliding, fitting, colours, and more.

Curro Midrand Sagewood activities
At our preschool, we believe that participation in extramural activities plays an important role in early childhood development. Therefore, 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.
Extramural activities at Curro are offered as additional opportunities to strengthen focused areas or hone certain skills. Many of these are designed to help children gain valuable skills that require more time for development than can be provided during the daily programme. Our extramural activities are offered by external tutors or coaches at an additional cost and take place on the school’s premises.
