School Class Structure
The placement of children into classes is at the discretion of the teacher and principal and may be flexible during the younger age groups.
Babies from 3 months with an adult accompanying them until the child is ready to go onto more formal schooling without a caregiver present.
Facilitator: Kim Matter
Children will be accepted into school from 18 months. Progression to the next class will be dependent upon the child having settled into the school routine and will not be before their 2nd birthday.
Two and three year old children.
Teacher: Nicky Sankey
Three turning four during the current year.
Teacher: Hilary Bailey and Assistant Emma Van der Westhuizen
Onderwyseres: Maryka Westraadt.
Teacher: Maryka Westraad
Grade R – Five turning six during the current year.
Teacher: Deidre Pollard
All children are required by the Department of Education to start Grade 1 in the year during which they turn seven.
Should a prospective Grade R learner not be ready for Grade 1, the Grade R year can be repeated only with permission from the Western Cape Education Department and after a comprehensive psychological school readiness assessment has been completed.
We endeavour to pinpoint any areas of concern during the years before Grade R so that steps can be taken early to remedy any impediments to learning that the child may face. If an area of concern is picked up, the school will refer the pupil to an independent professional for assessment in that area, and we will work in conjunction with them and the parents to facilitate improvement.
