Curro Castle Heuwelkruin
Curro Castle Heuwelkruin is an independent school in Myngenoegen, Polokwane that provides high-quality early childhood development for children from 2 years to 5 years. Our small class sizes allow dedicated teachers to engage each child in our internally developed play-based curriculum and to build strong, caring relationships with each child.
Our school is on the same campus as Curro Heuwelkruin, which allows children to easily progress from nursery school to primary school in a familiar environment, However, our building is separate from the primary and high school buildings to improve access control and ensure the children’s safety on the playground.
What do we offer?
At Curro Castle Heuwelkruin, we created a safe, nurturing centre of learning for children from 2 years to 5 years. Our carefully designed classrooms and engaging playgrounds encourage children to explore a wide variety of experiences through play and developmental activities, aimed at developing a curious mind and creative thinking.
Our internally developed programme incorporates the latest research in physical and cognitive development, such as encouraging loose-parts play that boost creativity and curiosity, above playing with single-purpose toys. The programme even includes activities built around large soft bricks that form the important early foundations for later Robotics studies.
Furthermore, our early drop-off times allow parents to drop their children at school from 07:00, while our aftercare keeps children safe on the campus until 17:00.
Which activities do we offer?
We believe that participation in extramural activities plays an important role in promoting friendship and self-confidence in addition to physical and social well-being. Many of our activities are designed to help learners learn valuable skills that require more time for development than can be provided during the daily programme.
How do we ensure safety in our school?
Our strict security measures ensure the safety of our children. Access to the campus is restricted, visitors need to sign in to gain access and the number of visitors per class is limited. Children are collected from the classroom and are signed in and out daily to ensure that they remain safe and accounted for.
What else is nearby?
Curro Heuwelkruin is situated in the countryside outside Polokwane. Situated on a hill, the 8,5 ha campus school overlooks the veld and Wolkberge mountains on the horizon. Our school is also easily accessible from the R71.
