Curro has a brand new Nursery School Curriculum designed for the pre-school child from the age of 3 months to 4 years. It is based on the 6 Learning Areas and stimulates and guided the young child to school readiness.

The 6 Learning Areas cover areas such as -

  • Language development

  • Physical development

  • Social, personal, emotional development
    Creative development

  • Cognitive thinking

  • Memory skills

  • Numeracy Knowledge and understanding of the world.

Curro Thatchfield practises a system of ‘invitational education’ in which learners are seen as able, valuable and responsible. Our ethos is governed by Christian values where learners are encouraged to explore and express their individuality within acceptable boundaries and ultimately take responsibility for their actions.

We guide learners to follow their hearts and develop into the best people they can be. Our broad curriculum covers problem-solving, creative thinking and the development of skills and values. Both individual and group work is evaluated. Learners are prepared for the matriculation examinations set by the Independent Examination Board (IEB).

At Curro Thatchfield our early childhood development centre caters for children in Group 5 and Gr R.

In this phase we focus on four principles:

  • The unique child: Curro recognises that every child is a competent learner from birth and can be resilient, capable, confident, and self-assured.

  • Positive relationships: children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and/or a key person (educator).

  • Enabling environments: our environment plays a key role in supporting and extending a child’s development and learning.

  • Learning and development: our children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates and all areas of learning and development are equally important and are inter-connected.

We have created a centre of learning where children can realise their full potential by providing a comprehensive, individual-orientated educational programme of the highest standard. Curro provides a sound foundation for completing the tasks and meeting the challenges of future learning.

  • We create an environment of opportunity where the child acquires general knowledge, the right attitudes and ethical and moral principles.

  • We encourage and teach each child social and life skills in a warm and loving environment.

  • We acknowledge that each child is an individual and we allow them to work at their own pace.

  • We create a sound and safe environment where each child is extended and growth is encouraged academically, socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

FOUNDATION PHASE: Grade 1 to 3

In the foundation phase we focus on teaching the foundational skills, concepts and knowledge that are required for further learning. We offer a vibrant, invitational atmosphere where the learners enjoy school and where they acquire a love for learning that will sustain them throughout their school years. We acknowledge the potential in each learner to reach their optimum ability, and therefore there is less emphasis on competitiveness and more emphasis on individual achievement. We create opportunities for personal growth in independence and responsibility so that the learners can accept the challenge of being personally responsible and accountable for their actions in the intermediate phase.

The three main learning areas are:
Literacy – English, Afrikaans
Numeracy – mathematical and number concepts
Life skills – skills from a variety of learning areas



INTERMEDIATE and SENIOR PHASE:
Grade 4 to 7

In the intermediate phase, the emphasis is still on establishing basic foundations, but learners are led into more abstract thinking and independent work. Application of skills and concepts is also a main focus aimed at preparing learners for the senior phase in the high school.
