Our Grade R’s are considered to be the leaders of the pre-primary school and not the babies of the primary school. Although much of their learning is still through play, it becomes more structured and formal.
Our main aim is to instil confidence and a sense of achievement in each individual as a foundation to future learning. The main focus is therefore not on teaching them to read and write in this early stage of the foundation phase, but to gain the confidence to learn and to realise that the world is their oyster –anything is possible.
Every year, we see our Grade R’s progress to primary school with eager confidence and continue to learn with success even through high school.
