In 2015 we opened a new area of the school to accommodate babies and baby toddlers from 3 months to 2 years. We have three play rooms which are air conditioned and two sleeping rooms.
There is a camera system installed so that parents may log in during the day to see how things are at school for their baby, giving them complete peace of mind. Karen and Petronella are in charge of the care of the babies. They have plenty of experience in caring for babies and Petronela has come from being manager of a local baby care centre. Both teachers are gentle and kind. Petronella runs a stimulation programme age appropriate for the tiny babies whilst Karen looks after the development needs of the baby toddlers.
There is a very high ratio of assistants in these classes to cope with the physical demands of nappies, feeding etc. We have a happy and calm environment for our little ones. When they sleep they will listen to soothing classical music to help them settle and have a relaxing rest.
Senior Toddler Centre
Our dedicated senior toddler centre is the stepping stone between the baby classes and Grade 000 and caters for 2 to 3 year olds.
Our tiny ones have a wonderful time. They benefit from the care and experience of teacher Umbali as well as the energy and devotion of teacher Zandy. Singing, counting, playing games and enjoying messy play are all part of the day.
There is a higher ratio of carers to children in this section because of the extra workload involved in looking after the little ones.
The Senior Toddler Centre has its own dedicated play area which is fenced off from the main playground. The centre also has its own kitchen and, a toilet area where little ones can continue with their potty training.
