More about us

Below is a summary of what we offer, follow the links to see detailed info.

Pre-Primary

The Pre-Primary children are housed in a separate campus and they are involved in a specific school readiness programme including literacy, numeracy, life skills as well as a basic computer course. There is a small computer lab where basic computer skills are taught.

Each group of young children has their own playground where they mix with children of their own age. The children also have homework books so that they can complete various exercises under the watchful eyes of their parents.

Fees & Outings

School fees DO NOT include outings.

We have about 8 activities or outings every year which are mostly connected to the theme for the week.

An example of an outing during the theme on FISH would be a visit to the local aquarium, or a visit to a farm when discussing FARM ANIMALS.

Themes

The daily theme discussions, creative activities, story for the day and music and movement rings are all planned so that the theme relates to all that the children do.

Daily Routine

The Daily Routine is extremely well structured and children are involved in daily theme discussions, character building sessions, fun-filled and exciting creative activities, music, dance and singing activities, listening skills, movement rings and obstacle courses, quiet play (construction toys, puzzle building, cognitive games) , organized outside play and story times.

Meals

Three meals are served each day: a snack of fruit-juice, Marie biscuits and fruit slices mid-morning, a hot cooked meal with pudding at lunchtime and sandwiches with fruit juice or rooibos tea and fruit slices in the mid-afternoon.

Extra Activities

Learn and Play Junior Academy offers extra activities which include Swimming, Ballet and Kindermusik.
