Our Curriculum and Educational program is aligned with the latest Early Childhood Development policies in South Africa, incorporating the best local and international trends in education.
The PRACTICA age appropriate learning program for babies aged 3 months to 18 months is applied. It unlocks the baby’s full potential through play and encourages each baby to reach certain goals and develop specific baby milestones age-appropriately.
We ensure to use our Baby Gym equipment daily to encourage Play through Learning. This is done in a fun and musical environment with small supervised groups in order to provide enough hands-on assistance for encouragement and safety.
Babynastics is another stimulation and development program that forms part of our Baby curriculum. The program develops little bodies and minds and we incorporate the program into our Baby Massage program weekly. The Baby Massage stimulation program is done by a trained staff member (who attended an accredited Baby Massage course) in a relaxed and warm atmosphere with soft relaxing music being played.
The older babies (18 – 24 months old) need more structured stimulation programs and these are presented in a playful, yet concrete way. The outcomes embedded in our curriculum, educational and development plan include:
- Language development: Afrikaans and English
- Physical stimulation and development (Baby massage and Babynastics programme)
- Personal, social and emotional development
- Creative development and art
- Cognitive thinking and awareness
- Memory skills
- Numeracy skills
- Knowledge and understanding of the world
