Junior Preparatory Phase

Nurturing Excellence

Grade 00

Throughout the preschool the grade 00’s start their educational journey in the capable hands of teacher Theresa and her assistant, teacher Maria. Here the learners are nurtured and exposed to a variety of age appropriate activities. They also commence with Mandarin lessons in a relaxed atmosphere. Songs and the oral extension of vocabulary and repetition form the basis here. In Grade 0, under the capable hands of their teachers, further learning is achieved in small sized classes through structured activities that holistically focus on developing the learners. Mathematics is all about having fun, so activities are practical, yet stimulating while focussing on problem solving. The learning of Mandarin is further extended through games, cultural events and songs. Learners actively participate in sport and cultural activities, where chaos is transformed into organised excitement. All the goals of our preschool are achieved in a safe and secure environment and promote love, respect and self-confidence. We follow the prescriptions from the Department of Education, along with the Curriculum guidelines endorsed by ISASA and SAHISA. Our dedicated and fully qualified staff has a passion to equip these little ones to be ready to move on to the ‘big school’.

Activities:

We are proud to mention that we have a wide variety of sports and cultural activities to offer our children. It is incorporated to our co-curricular programme from Monday to Thursday, 13:30 to 15:00. The sporting activities that are on offer include cricket, tennis and swimming for the first term, netball, soccer and hockey for the second term, and athletics for the third term. Cultural clubs include a Chinese club, Art club, Music club, an Environmental club, Puzzle club and Buddy Reading. Children are encouraged to take part in the activities of their choice, and are always under caring supervision. We also have a homework venue available for children from 15:00 till 16:00. An Aftercare service (Sherpa Kids), which makes use of our facilities, is also available till 18:00 in the afternoons. We are proud to have well-trained and qualified teachers and coaches, who supervise and take care of all these activities.

Grade one – Grade three:

The Pretoria Chinese School provides an environment conducive for educating the child holistically. The basics of Mandarin are taught in a fun and easy manner, often through games and songs. Classes are kept small allowing the child to receive more individualised attention, whilst being lovingly cared for by well qualified teachers. Throughout our educational programme an emphasis is placed on developing a thinking child who can enrich society. The Junior Preparatory School follows the CAPS curriculum as prescribed by the Department of Education. We also incorporate the Early Childhood Development Curriculum Guidelines endorsed by ISASA and SAHISA.
