Our Services

Full and Half days. We are open throughout the year, including school holidays. During the government school holidays we do not do structured lessons but run a special fun holiday programme. We do, however, close for one week (our mid-year break) at the end of June, then we close for three weeks at the end of each year for our annual leave.

Our Teacher, Lulu, is fully qualified and has many, many years of Teaching experience. Our class is very small, enabling the children to get individual attention.

We use “Letterland” and the CAPS Syllabus. Various mathematical concepts are used, giving the children an excellent grounding and understanding of numeracy.

We prepare children for Private and Government Schools. An Occupational

Therapist is available to do school readiness testing.

Extra Mural Activities

Monkeynastix, Ballet/Modern Dancing, Computer Creche Course, Soccerstars, Build-em-brix and Swimming lessons. These activities all come at an extra cost.

Educational Shows

We do not take the children out on outings, for security reasons.

Once or twice a month, we book professional people, to come to our school, to entertain and educate our children.

This is either as a puppet show, educational show or as a live animal show.

These are great fun. A nominal fee is charged for these shows.

At 15:00 each day, we have snack time, you supply a snack e.g a yoghurt, fruit and fruit juice (no biscuits or sweets allowed).
