Why choose Constantiaberg
Children are our passion. We love to teach your children and cherish each unique, individual child. Our aim is to help your child grow in confidence and in all areas of development eg.physical, emotional, social and intellectual. We want each child to flourish, not only in Grade one, but in everything they choose to do throughout life. We encourage children to explore the different areas/activities that are set up in the classroom and in the garden, to problemsolve, to be creative, to verbalise their feelings and to develop their social skills.
Our classrooms are spacious and well setup with lots of opportunity for sensory and finemotor development, fantasy, block building, perceptual games, book reading etc. These areavailable to the children at all times enabling them to direct their own learning.
Our garden is a haven for gross motor development and fantasy play with areas such as: the pirate ship, jungle gyms, mud kitchen, petrol station, sand pits, swings and roadways for bikes and go carts etc. Manners and respect are promoted at all times and children are encouraged to take care of their environment by looking after the plants in the garden, feeding the fish in the pond and loving the guinea pigs.
The transition from home to school can be difficult for some children. At the drop off zone children are welcomed and greeted each morning and made to feel happy and safe. Those who are confident enough to walk into school without a parent will be guided towards their classroom by a teacher /assistant where they will be greeted and welcomed and guided to pack their bag in their locker and then helped to choose an activity or area that excites them and is of interest to them, so that they can explore, grow and have fun. (Parents are always welcome to help settle their child in at school)
