We realise that Grade R is a crucial year for laying the foundation for lifelong learning.
This is why we follow a unique Grade R programme using the Impaq learning system combined with a Montessori based method of education.
Created with the holistic development of young learners in mind, the Grade R Impaq programme is aimed at equipping our learners with a broad range of skills and abilities, while the CAPS aligned curriculum integrates the three core learning areas – Home Language, Mathematics and Life Skills – to ensure school readiness.
Take note: Grade R has no formal assessment, however progress is monitored.
