ARE YOUR CLASS SIZES RESTRICTED?

To ensure that your child will receive sufficient attention and supervision, we restrict class sizes. Each class is staffed by a qualified teacher and one or more assistants, depending on the teacher to child ratio.

DO YOU OFFER SPECIAL MEALS?

Good nutrition is a critical component of brain development. We provide nutritious, well-balanced, tasty meals and snacks that are also fun. Our food is freshly prepared on site in our new kitchen, following food safety best practice. Every day your child will receive a protein, a fresh fruit and a vegetable for lunch. Snacks will consist of fresh fruit and a grain. We will post a weekly menu outside your class or include it in the newsletter.

WHAT STEPS WILL YOU TAKE TO ENSURE MY CHILD'S SAFETY?

Your child’s safety is of the utmost importance to us. Among other things, we do the following to ensure your child’s safety:

  • We have a strict access control policy. Fingerprint identification systems are in place to ensure that only authorized persons can access our premises. 

  • We have a strict collection policy. 

  • We have secure manned entrances.

  • CCTV cameras are installed in key areas.

  • Our property is fully walled and secured on all sides.

  • Both gates are access controlled and linked to a response unit.

  • We follow a strict hygiene and infection policy.

  • Qualified first-aiders at school at all times.

  • We have a strict social media policy.

DO YOU OFFER EXTRA-MURALS?

To ensure that your child will be exposed to a broader range of experiences and activities during their formative years, we have contracted reputable and experienced providers to offer your child extra-murals. We aim to balance physical and mental activities. We endeavour to include "futureproof" activities, such as those considered preparation for coding and programming. We will distribute our extra-mural offering at the start of every term. Extra-murals fees are paid directly to the service providers.

DO YOU OFFER THERAPIES?

We believe that early intervention is critical to ensure that your child is school ready and will reach their potential. For your convenience we have a therapy centre on our premises, where you can arrange for your child to attend the necessary therapies. Therapies include, speech, occupational therapy (OT) and physiotherapy. We will also arrange for an external audiologist and a paediatric ophthalmologist to do hearing and visual screening annually, with your consent.
