about us

Learning is fun

Our aim is to develop and nurture children so that they will venture from our school as positive and secure individuals and will be able to face the future with confidence.

Michelle van der Berg is the owner of the pre-school and has been running the school successfully since 1998. Michelle is a qualified Junior and Pre-Primary teacher and has a 4 year teaching Diploma. She has taught Grade 1’s for four years and has been teaching nursery school children since 1997. She is actively involved with the school and teaches the senior class whilst overseeing and guiding the junior class teacher.

Kidz College is open weekdays (excluding Public Holidays) from 07h00—18h00. Although our school is open the whole year even during the school holidays, you must take note that we close the Friday before the 16th of December and take 1 week leave during April/May. This week will always be combined with public holidays to make it easier for you.

education

Learning should always be fun

Numeracy, Literacy and Life Skills in the foundation Phase are based on a curriculum prescribed by the Department of Education.

Our programme also accommodates enrichment and remedial activities.

Themes are relevant, child centred and coincide with world events and public holidays.

The children are assessed on a daily basis and reports are presented bi-annually. Your child’s progress and development is discussed with you on an ongoing basis.

We keep our children productively busy and stimulated so that they do not resort to disruptive behaviour. Discipline is always firm, fair and consistent.

The parent, teacher and principal work together to deal with any persistent and worrying discipline problems.

educa tional program

Our Grade R class follows a comprehensive School Readiness Programme, laying the foundation for the preparatory reading, maths, motor and concentration skills required for Grade 1.

We follow the letterland program and each child has a handwriting book as well as a perception and numeracy book.

fun stuff

Birthdays

As birthdays are important in the eyes of a child, we do our best to make this an exceptionally special day.

We encourage parents to send cake or cup cakes and a few sweets or chips to celebrate this special occasion.

Concerts

Our annual concert is one of the highlights of the year. All children participate in this fun-filled event.

Our Grade R’s also have a formal graduation ceremony on the night of the concert.

Extra Murals

Kidz College offers various extra murals to our children during the morning program.

Children who do not take part in the extra murals will not feel left out, as all the activities take place during outside play time.

We offer computer lessons, ballet, karate, pottery, kidi-sportz and swimming during the summer months.

x

security

Learning should be fun

We view security as a priority. Our school is linked to an armed response company who patrol the surrounds on a regular basis.

Our school is situated in a boomed area and our street is closed off. This makes our street very quiet and safer for the children.

x

eating healthy

Two balanced meals are offered per day (breakfast and lunch). We also provide a mid-morning snack, mid-afternoon snack and late afternoon snack.

Our menus are nutritionally balanced and well-presented.

The principal and teachers should be notified of any allergies that your child may have.
