We use a range of excellent and proven Bible-based curricula, which we have merged and adapted over the years to suit our own circumstances. In Grade R, we teach Phonics from the ACE (Accelerated Christian Education) Reading Readiness Programme. This programme has suited us very well over the years. It not only gives an excellent thorough grounding in the 35 phonetic sounds covered, but also includes character-building and life skills from a Christian perspective. We also use an extended CAPS Numeracy Programme in Grade R.
We are a Christ-centred Bible-based school, with a loving and nurturing environment. We aim to pursue excellence in the education and development of the whole child. We see the Pre-Primary as an extension of the Christian family and our role as one of supporting parents in the training up of their children.
