We adopt a “child-centered” approach and are focused on developing your child’s natural strengths and interests. Every child is an individual and children react differently to others in certain situations.

Description

We feel this individuality needs to be accommodated so that children feel understood and are able to learn to express themselves in a healthy and constructive manner. We believe in positive re-enforcement to model good behavior and discipline.

Baby House
There is a dedicated baby house in which babies will be cared for until they are developmentally ready for the toddler stage.

This baby house has a milk kitchen, in which we clean and sterilise bottles as well as make-up milk formula or heat expressed breast milk.

There is a dedicated bathroom to bath and wash babies as well as a sleep and play area. Each baby will sleep with a breathing monitor to ensure the safety of the child. Babies are kept separate from the rest of the school to control cross infection from older children.

Medical Support
A Paediatric Sister consults with the running of the baby house and all staff are trained in CPR. A Well-Baby Clinic Sister visits the baby house weekly for weighing, monitoring and also offers inoculations should parents wish to take advantage of this convenience. We are connected to RSS who have a medical response team and can be on the scene within 3 minutes in the event of an emergency.

Schedules
Eat, sleep, play
We understand that your baby has its own schedule and we aim to adhere to this, especially in very young babies who tend to get over-stimulated very quickly. They will gradually grow into a sleep, eat and play routine.

When awake we will play, massage and stimulate your baby with age appropriate activities. There will be some outside time for babies to get fresh air, feel the grass and have some tactile stimulation.

Toddlers 12 mths - 2 years
Toilet Training is done on the premises. Special play areas are available for younger toddlers to master gross motor skills. Muscle strengthening activities for fine motor skills are developed using various mediums.

Kids 2 - 5 years
The play ground for this age group is age appropriate and is designed to help develop Gross Motor functions. Fantasy play, physical play and mental puzzles are encouraged at this age. We also follow a curriculum out that is age appropriate for each of these age groups.

Nutrition
We serve 3 nutritious and wholesome meals a day with two snacks in between. Breakfast, lunch and a light dinner for children staying full day, as well as snacks at 10am and 3pm which comprise either a sandwich or fruit with fruit juice or tea. E-spring filtered water is available all day for the children.
Fun is built in with Baker Days and birthdays.

Additional Support
As our children grow and develop many show Sensory, ADD, ADHD and other tendencies. We have specialists visiting the school once a week to "consult" with these children so that parents do not have to take special leave from work. It is well known that the sooner these issues are dealt with, the sooner the child responds and will hopefully avoid early school learning problems. Some of the therapies available are Physio, Speech Therapy, OT

Library
We encourage reading, imagination and fantasy play, and have a comprehensive library of books and DVD's for rainy days.

Hours of work

We open at 07h00 and close at 17h30. We do close for the December private school holidays, but do offer a Holiday Care programme in December should enough parents require the service. We may close on select days around a public holiday that falls on a Thursday or Tuesday during the year, but parents are advised well in advance. Other than that we do not close for the traditional school holidays and do not charge extra during that time. We also do not interrupt our curriculum, the day goes on as usual.
