BABY CLASS

Our Exclusive Baby & Toddler Wing hosts our Baby & Toddler Classes. This wing has an amazing playground with facilities to stimulate and assist in gross motor development. Our children experience an action packed day of learning in their well-equipped classrooms & playground.

Our Baby Class runs age appropriate activities that develop and help stimulate our little ones.

The class is separated into 4 different areas:

  • Sleeping Area (cots),
  • 3 month to +/- 9 month play / stimulating area
  • Older babies play / stimulating area
  • Nappy changing area.

YOUNGER CLASSES

(18 Months – 4 year olds)

These classes follow a pre-planned programme where children effectively learn through play. Age appropriate activities that stimulate the 5 senses of sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell are utilized. Gross and Fine-motor skills are developed with painting, cutting & pasting, puzzles, blocks, balls, hoops, outdoor equipment, climbing apparatus, water & sand play, etc… Messy play & exploratory play help develop thinking skills & problem solving skills.

These classes operate on the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) curriculum offered through Accelerated Education Enterprises (AEE). AEE offers international and local learning materials for all stages and levels of education, from pre-school to Grade 12. AEE materials support a personalised system of instruction (PSI). Our world-class, end-to-end education solutions meet best practice academic standards and are designed to include character and wisdom building units for life and living.
 

GRADE R – FIRST YEAR OF FOUNDATION PHASE

(5 turning 6 year olds)

During this Grade R year, a solid foundation of phonics and number takes place – effectively ensuring a smooth transition to literary and numerical competency. Grade R is the first year of formal, structured education and as such parents are encouraged to be as involved as possible.

REPORTS

A report is issued for each child at the end of each term. This Report is sent out at the beginning of the following term on condition that Fees are up to date.

The report is a full assessment of each child’s development and progress.
**Please note that these age related assessments are an observation of each child’s performance at this point. They are not necessarily an indication of each child’s future potential. These assessments can be influenced by many factors such as ill health \ immaturity \ being new in a school \ changes at home, etc…
