Campus 2 – The Castle

Find us on the corner of Kwartz & Marmer streets in Farrarmere.

We welcome children for grade 00 and grade R as we help them pave the way for their first year in Primary School. Our priority is to ensure that each child leaving our school is perfectly prepared for grade 1.

To help us achieve this we have employed top class, fully qualified teachers who have a calling to educate little ones.We follow the National Curriculum Statement as well as the Jolly Phonics programme as required by Farrarmere Primary School.

Our classroom routines incorporate fun lessons and plenty of variation. Children of this age still need lots of playtime too and our playgrounds are lovely areas where they can enjoy free play in a safe and welcoming environment
