WELCOME TO THE FOUNDATION PHASE

The Foundation Phase is situated on the Brabant Street Campus. We have a dynamic and energetic staff who go the extra mile to make sure that learning is engaging and relevant. Our Grade Rs are taught in an informal learning environment that provides learners with a key foundational year where the gap between home and formal schooling is bridged. The Grade R curriculum provides children the opportunity to learn through play, in non-threatening and non-judgmental surroundings that are fun, hands on and real life based.

It is a year where children are given a chance to fine tune school readiness skills and grow holistically; in an environment that meets their cognitive, social, emotional and physical needs – better preparing them for the demands of Grade 1 and formal schooling. The children transition easily into formal education and it is during these three years that our learners build a solid foundation of knowledge and skills that will enable them to succeed throughout their school careers. Where possible learning is linked to real life experiences and learners benefit from having teachers who are thorough, creative and dedicated.
