- Learning Beyond The Classroom
The journey begins at Pre-primary where the emphasis is on learning through play and informal, creative activities. The independent progress of each child is carefully monitored and specialised individual attention is given.
Our facilities are warm and welcoming and the outdoor layout provides a challenging environment that encourages creative activities, exploration, and the fun of messy play. The Pre-primary is housed in a beautiful garden setting where every two classes combine to create a separate little home, each with a private garden, sandpit and water play area, which all add to happy hours filled with enjoyment.
In order to ensure that all our children are equipped for formal schooling, the Pre-Primary works closely with the Junior Primary department preparing them intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically for the more stringent demands of formal schooling.
An aftercare facility is available for children up to Grade 3, which runs from close of school until 17h30. The children enjoy a balanced lunch and their homework is supervised. We also run a Holiday Care programme for working parents where fun activities are organised to entertain the children during the holidays.
