With one of the founding members of the Kiddies Academy chain at the helm, Kiddies Academy Garsfontein employs the skills of a dedicated team to assure the finest early education for your children.
Kiddies Academy Garsfontein is a caring, committed school catering for children between the ages of 0 to six years. Many of the teachers have been working at the school for many years, giving them important experience in the education of young children, and giving them the requisite skills to be like second mothers to all of the children in their care. The principal, Zanne Kriek, is a registered educational psychologist; bringing fundamental areas of expertise to the running of the school and in dealing with the individual issues encountered by her learners.
Kiddies Academy Garsfontein provides children with a valuable foundation of learning – something they can draw upon as they grow older and progress through their school years. The school’s curriculum is that of the Letterland learning method, whereby children become familiar with letters through association with objects. This system recognises the needs of young children as they are introduced to reading and writing, and entertaining stories aid in the process and ensure the enjoyment of lessons. It is through this curriculum that learners develop healthy attitudes to learning, as well as the abilities to do well as they go on to primary school.
The school’s safe environment and facilities enable children to play, discover and learn. Activities are age appropriate, fun and geared towards development of skills and knowledge. The diversity of activities on offer make the campus a happy one, filled with music, laughter and friends. Kiddies Academy is an extension of home for children, and teachers put together report cards and have parents’ evenings in order to discuss progress and keep parents informed. Kiddies Academy also offers support in primary school selection.
