Our Pre-Preparatory is open to children from 2 to 6 years. We offer an exceptional and exciting formative education. Each child is special and is treated as a unique individual.
We believe in a holistic approach ensuring all learners reach their full potential in a happy, relaxed, secure and Christian environment. In a world that grows more competitive and impersonal daily, we provide a caring atmosphere where children can be children; free to play, explore and be creative while experiencing fun and success in a non-competitive environment.
We follow the National Curriculum. The focus being on Life Skills, Literacy and Mathematics and integrating the other learning areas into these core areas. We make learning fun.
All the grades follow the same core theme and as the children progress through the grades this theme is extended and expanded on within our structured curriculum.
With small classes our experienced and caring teachers nurture each child, adhering to our Catholic Ethos, in order to assist them in working towards their full potential.
Our teachers are highly skilled, motivated and well informed keeping abreast of educational developments both here and abroad, placing strong emphases on perceptual and motor skills. These necessary skills are stimulated through the medium of play activities.
Specialist coaches come in throughout the week and run full movement and music programmes as part of the curriculum we offer.
We have well-equipped classrooms that reflect the latest educational trends. Our outside play area is safe and secure and provides equipment which helps the children develop whilst having fun.
The school has on-site Occupational and Speech Therapists and an Educational Psychologist, so any problems detected can be dealt promptly with in your child’s formative years without them having to leave our premises.
As we are on the same premises as Veritas College Preparatory, we enjoy access to their extensive facilities. The Grade R children are able to visit the Computer Centre and use a computer each to play educational games and use perceptual programmes. The Pre-Preparatory children also have access to the Media Centre where children are encouraged to develop a love of books and reading at an early age.
In summer months we are able to use the Preparatory swimming pool and our children are taught water safety skills along with just cooling off and socialising on hot days.
Our open door policy means you are welcome to visit at any time. We provide regular feedback in the form of a report every term, have regular parent meetings and also send out newsletters to keep our parents informed of our activities.
