School times for Grade R are from 07h40 - 13h10 every day.
It is important to send your little one to school before they start Grade 1. They will become familiar with the routines and surroundings of formal schooling within a more nurturing environment. They are prepared socially and a good foundation is established for formal education. This will relieve some stress when starting school in Grade 1.
The R area operates as part of the school, but little ones are taught in one of the three classrooms that are fenced off from the rest of the school-grounds with their own play area and bathrooms.
We encourage a love for learning and try to inspire confidence in our pupils, within a Christian framework. We aim to inspire them to become enthusiastic and willing learners - whether they are completing puzzles, singing, painting or attending lessons in Mathematics, Literacy and Life Skills.
