Holiday care and early drop-off times
Our preschool is open during school holidays and 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. In addition, we are open from early in the morning and our full-day option remains open until late in the afternoon.
Teachers have assistants
As part of the Curro group, 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, to ensure that each child in our small class sizes gets the necessary love and attention.
Registered nurse on-site
Children wholeheartedly run, climb, and play in ways that could sometimes lead to bumps and scrapes. They might also fall ill during the day. That is why we have a registered nurse on-site during the school day as well as first-aid officers on staff.
Our preschool has an on-site kitchen that is fully equipped to prepare well-balanced, wholesome meals and snacks for children in all age groups. All meals are prepared with fresh ingredients just before being delivered to the classrooms. These meals are included in our school fees and we carefully accommodate allergies and other dietary requirements – catering to individual needs is possible due to our small class sizes.
Kiddies activity centre
As the first of its kind in the Curro group, we are continuously at the forefront of innovative early childhood development. Our kiddies’ activity centre is an interactive centre where children can discover a variety of life, business and technical skills through role playing under the supervision of trained guides. Visits to the activity centre are offered as part of the educational programme and costs are included in our school fees.
Our classrooms are designed to accommodate the Curiosity Approach. This involves a reconceptualised, sensory-rich indoor and outdoor environment, loose-parts play areas, a sensory playground and real-life objects to explore, rather than unimaginative, single-purpose toys. Most tables and chairs are removed from the classrooms to create space for several themed pockets of learning designed to arouse children’s curiosity.
Our school also has a swimming pool used to teach children about water safety.
