Nursery School & Grade R

Nursery School & Grade R

Childhood is a magical time for the child and parents alike. At Rosemarie Schools we understand the importance of development, we believe in developing children who have the ability to reach their cognitive potential.

Dr David Feuerstein, a child psychologist, once said that a child only needs three things to thrive:

• A caring adult
• Who unlocks the world
• And gives it meaning

At Rosemarie Schools we believe these three things are evident in our staff, environment and curriculum.

We believe in play, innocence and the joy of being a child.

Our schools are based on Christian principles and beliefs. We believe in creating a warm and loving environment where each child can grow and develop optimally.

Our classrooms are spacious and allow for exploration and sensory stimulation. Our playground has age appropriate equipment to aid in developing important gross motor skills as well as spatial awareness.

Our staff and assistants are fully qualified and often attend courses to keep their knowledge and skill up to date.

Our Nursery School is registred with all the relevant departments and is monitored by CCTV. Our Nursery School is linked to a rapid armed response security company for safety and security.
