Logos Pre-Primary

Our Pre-Primary aims to offer a happy, caring and secure learning environment for children aged 4 to 6 years old.
Children are active learners who learn most effectively through “doing” – experimenting, discovering and exploring.
Play is an essential part of a child’s early development. Through play, our children learn to engage and interact in the world around them. It encourages the use of their imagination and creative abilities, and builds a desire to explore and discover.  Here they can develop socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically.  Our daily program provides a stimulating group-centered environment with age-appropriate educational and play materials.

We offer a combined Grade R and Grade RR class that is facilitated by a qualified teacher and a trained class assistant. Grade RR consists of the younger children (age 4-5) and Grade R the older group (age 5-6). The teachers facilitate learning by following a planned integrated curriculum, whereby they interact with children during teacher-directed learning times together with free play both indoors and outdoors.

The foundational skills of pre-reading (listening, recall, understanding),  pre-writing (fine and gross motor;
eye-hand co-ordination) and pre-maths (numbers, shapes, colours) are encouraged as they are all important for the success of a child once they reach a formal schooling.  Basic life skills will also be incorporated into the daily program
to support the parents in teaching their children manners, safety and hygiene.  Our school programme encourages your child to develop Biblical character traits that will benefit them for life.  School should be an extension of the home, therefore family values are promoted.

We introduce various themes during the year to increase vocabulary and general knowledge, and to make learning fun. The children have the opportunity to work in groups and as individuals in art activities such as painting, drawing, play dough, construction, etc. They are able to explore the world through fantasy play, the book corner, music, movement and drama, and they are stimulated through puzzle building, baking activities, guided math activities and other exciting challenges.  The students have the unique opportunity to make use of the school’s Computer Centre and take delight in discovering the world of Science through experiments and practical applications.

The Pre-Primary students are an integral part of the Logos family and as such they take part in all school activities – they join in on fun days, take part in inter-house sport competitions, compete in sporting events and attend assembly with the older students. Our children play in a safe environment, where team work and respect for one another is encouraged.

Each child is loved and cared for as a unique individual creating a secure and positive self image which in turn helps develop empathy, positivity and kindness towards one another. Our school has a Christian ethos and we believe
‘Train up a child in the way he should go: when he is old he will not depart from it.’  Proverbs 22:6
