OUR GRADES

Introducing our

PRE-SCHOOL

We accommodate babies from 6 months old.

Our small student-to-teacher ratio allows for individual attention and care, developing each child’s full potential.

We make use of Little Mellon Workbooks & Resources. STEAM forms part of our foundation of teaching, as well as being a proud supporter and believer in the MindMoves programme. Our staff are all trained to implement their effective system in our everyday teaching. 

Our children are encouraged to express themselves through music and movement, baking, perceptual activities, outdoor development, science experiments and all things fun, messy and marvelous!

Our passionate teachers and teaching assistants find it a privilege and an honouor to accompany you and your child on this start of their educational journey.

EXTRA-MURALS :

Extra-mural activities offered include:
Playball | Ballet | Swimming | Trampoline Tumbling

MUSIC & MOVEMENT

Music and movement benefit a child’s development in many ways. Skills that music and movement can help develop, include social skills, creativity, imagination, participating in a group and more.

SHOW & TELL

Show and Tell not only helps your child to develop their speech, it also helps them to become comfortable talking in front of their peers.

Our little ones get to host market day once a year. 

TUCK SHOP

Not only is tuck shop a fun day where the students can enjoy a sweet treat, it’s also a learning opportunity where children learn about the value of money.
