Welcome to Curro Secunda Preschool

Select a category

Curro Secunda has a preschool in Secunda, Mpumalanga, that provides high-quality early childhood development for children from 3 months to 5 years, with a focus on the ELDAs. Our small class sizes allow our dedicated teachers to engage each child in our internally developed play-based curriculum and build strong, caring relationships with each child. Our school is on the same campus as our primary and high schools, which allows children to easily progress from preschool to primary school in a familiar environment.

Why is it best for children to learn through play?

Children learn by discovering the world around them – and anything learned while playing at a young age is remembered much faster and more efficiently compared to anything learned while sitting at a table in a forced learning environment.

As part of the Curro school group, our children enjoy a programme that supports their physical, social, emotional and cognitive well-being. This approach to early childhood development is built around learning and developing through play rather than strict milestones. This means that children feel supported and encouraged instead of anxious and pressured to develop at someone else’s pace.

Learning during childhood starts with babies exploring their touch and taste sense while playing with squishy pasta, jelly, and other texture-rich objects. Later on, young toddlers learn the basics of mathematics by playing with building blocks, balls, manipulating objects around their bodies, and other ways. Older toddlers learn the basics of writing and reading with comprehension by drawing, painting, singing, and generally discovering objects that centre around a specific theme.

Here are some examples of the areas that are developed by learning through play:

  • Mathematics: shapes, size, time, counting, adding, subtracting
  • Communication: speech, listening, reading, understanding
  • Creativity: drawing, painting, correct pinching of a pencil, dancing
  • Physical well-being: balance, movement, safety
  • Identity and belonging: personality, morals, caring, friendship, sharing


Curro Secunda activities

As a Curro School, we believe that participation in extramural activities plays an important role in promoting social skills, self-confidence and physical well-being. These activities are offered by externaltutors or coaches at an additional cost, and generally take place on the preschool premises.
