Education and Curriculum
We warmly welcome children from age 2 to Grade R (o) into our fold. Each age group is housed in a sunny and spacious classroom where a dedicated, qualified teacher and teacher’s assistant will facilitate an exciting and specialised learning programme. Some lessons take place beneath the trees to enhance sensory exploration. Others occur in our well-equipped classrooms, Indoor Sports’ Hall, Media and Library Centre as well as in our Performing Arts Studio.
At Ashfield Preschool we endeavour to provide each child with a global education by combining Early Childhood Education with cutting edge international learning trends. In order for each child to realise their dreams and embrace the bright future that we are guiding them towards, we educate the ‘whole’ child. Our child-centred approach is committed to building on each individual’s strengths and includes physical, intellectual and social development.

We have a day mother here from 06:30 to 18:00, should you need to arrange an early drop off. We also have a Learning Support team incorporating a Speech Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Remedial Therapist and a Psychologist, who are all registered with the Health Professional Council.

Our Ashfield Preschool aftercare programme differs considerably as we provide a stimulating environment that is catered towards entertaining the children with a variety of fun-filled activities. The children are not simply ‘looked after’ in the presence of one teacher in a classroom but have the opportunity to engage in sporting activities, outdoor play, various arts and crafts and so on. At Ashfield Preschool we really seek to provide a nurturing and exciting aftercare experience where children can also form friendships and enjoy free play.
At Ashfield Preschool we offer a wide variety of extra murals, as we believe that this is vital to every child’s holistic development. Whilst extra murals are not included in the monthly tuition fee, they are highly recommend and encouraged by the teaching staff at our school. All extra mural activities are offered during the afternoon, after school has ended.
Beyond Grade 0 (R)
Pupils at Ashfield Preschool are prepared physically, mentally and socially to ensure a smooth transition to any school, both locally or abroad.
Our motivated staff, carefully-considered learning programmes, diverse facilities and safe environment are here to meet and supersede the needs of your child. But most of all, at Ashfield Preschool, our greatest barometer of success is an inspired and happy child who feels nurtured and secure whilst in our care.
