The Eastern Suburbs Pre-Primary School grounds are designed to provide children with the facilities they need to learn and grow. Education is dual medium – catering for English and Afrikaans learners, and all children between the age of 18 months and six years are welcome at the school, which includes Grade 0/R.
The school’s playrooms and outside play area are arranged to achieve the balance between stimulation of creative potential and emotional and social development. Playrooms incorporate a range of fine-motor development activities; perceptual and construction material; a monthly-changing fantasy area; musical instruments and a number of books. The outside play area has ample space, and a separate area is allocated for Grade 00 and Grade 0 children. This happy outdoor area has a wide variety of gross-motor apparatus including tree-houses, jungle gyms, swings, sandpits, ball games and a cycling track where little ones can ride tricycles, wagons and scooters. Texture tables allow children to handle a range of materials.
Eastern Suburbs Pre-Primary School organises a number of fun events and themes for the children such as Bakers’ Days, weekly themes, shows and days that offer children the opportunity to dress up and learn intensively about different topics. Bi-annual progress reports are also sent to parents so they can be updated on their children’s achievements and areas that may require a little extra effort. In addition to this, the school is open with their communication to parents – making them part of the school family and keeping them aware of what is happening during the busy school days.
