At Woodlands our learners all find a place they look forward coming to. We begin instilling this love for learning in our pre-school. This is a time for learning through “learning and experience”. Learners begin in Toddlers (from 12 months) and they spend three fun-filled years learning to reason, think and create. When they are ready they will move to our grade 000 class, next to the grade 00 class and then to our grade R class. Our pre-school programme is embedded in CAPS, ensuring the idea of integrated learning.
The various learning areas are therefore not presented as separate entities and thus literacy, numeracy and life skills are experienced as a holistic unit. Our daily programme consists of auditory or visual perception, gross and fine motor skills, creative activities, theme work, literacy and ample opportunity to play outside as well as play-ball once a week at an minimal extra cost.
