The early years of children’s formal education is the foundation upon which future academic and life skills are built. Every learner has an innate wish to explore their world and the Junior Preparatory provides a platform for such experiential learning. Learners’ ideas and expressions are valued, and the ultimate goal of producing confident, independent learners is achieved within a technology-rich, creative and intellectually stimulating environment.

We believe that the subject Life Skills supports and strengthens the teaching of mathematics and language, giving learners practical topics in which they can practise their reading, writing, and numeracy skills.  It also focuses on developing auditory and visual perceptual skills, hand-eye coordination, and sensory memory, providing learners with the foundation for all future learning and development.

The Senior Preparatory provides the important bridge between the Junior Preparatory and the Secondary Faculty, educators work closely to ensure a seamless transition from Grade Six to Grade Seven for each learner. Within a nurturing environment we continue to promote a love for learning and focus on the core skills which are necessary for success. While following the national curriculum, educators provide opportunities for learners to explore topics in depth, creating a space for innovation and independent learning.
