There are numerous tools available to aid the children with their creative activities which are allocated within the curriculum. This includes music, movement, painting, pasting, play dough and many more activities.
The Grade 0/R class is taught by Lulu herself. Her qualifications and years of experience, combined with small classes and individual attention has become a premium service. Little Lulu uses the “Letterland,” and a GED-recognised syllabus. Children are prepared for school at every level, with a big focus on numeracy. Children are offered (if needed) a school readiness test, performed by a qualified Occupational Therapist.
There are a number of extra murals offered at Little Lulu Day Care Centre. These all complement the school programme and assist in the development of the large and small motor co-ordination. They are: Monkeynastix, Playball, Ballet/Modern Dancing, Soccer, Computers, Pottery and Mickey Maths. In the interest of the children’s security, the school prefers to book professionals to put on educational and fun shows at the school instead of going out on outings.
