About Us

Play areas

Our outside play areas are large and very well equipped. The separate toddler play area has soft padded matting and relevant age related play equipment. We also have a bicycle track, NEW Modular  jungle gyms, a shaded sandpit and lots of grass. The play times are staggered so that children are able to use all the equipment freely.

Discipline

Our objective is having a happy and peaceful atmosphere where there is human understanding and caring. When correction is required we have two approaches:

Time out – A few minutes to sit in a special place away from the group but in view of the teacher, where the child can think about what he or she has done.

Persuasion – The child is gently led to exercise self-discipline and behave in an acceptable manner. This can be done through a quiet chat or a stern talking to. No child should be permitted to harm another or him or herself or damage property.

Communication with parents

We hand out Communication forms with regards to misbehaviour at school to keep parents informed with regards to a child behaviour at all times.
Incident report forms are also sent home to report an incident to parents. Where ever possible photos are attached. Copies of the above are then kept in the child’s personal file.

Complaints and Compliments

It is required that any complaints or compliments are submitted in writing.
