How we cater for Grade R and Pre-Grade R children
Young children get ready for formal learning and life through play. At Valley we cater for a two or three year programme, i.e. Pre-Grade R (3 – 5 years old) and Grade R (5 – 6 years old).
In dealing with the 3 – 5 year old child and the 5 – 6 year old child, the teacher has a different approach. Our expectations of children vary according to their ages and it is extremely important to provide a programme, which is suited to both their needs and abilities. Grade R is the first year of the foundation phase (Grade R to Grade 3) and follows the National Curriculum. This is a child centred curriculum and focuses on Home language, Mathematics and Life Skills.
Whilst following the National Curriculum, Valley has personalised and enriched the learning programme to ensure the holistic development of each learner, e.g.:
- To solve problems
- To work in a group
- To act responsibly
- To acquire thinking skills
- To communicate effectively
- To develop culturally and aesthetically
The learning programme is child-centered and challenges the learners to use critical and creative thinking, to participate actively in the learning process using their whole body and all their senses, and to make their own discoveries.
Valley Pre-Primary hosts an Open Day during the first quarter of every year, so please contact the school if you would like to receive an invitation to this Open Day. If you have already missed the Open Day, you may make an appointment to take a tour of the school at a time that suits you.
