Kindergarten 1-5 Years

About Ortloff’s

At Ortloff’s we strive to ensure each child feels loved, safe, happy and curious to explore, this being in and outside the classroom.

Our teachers are dedicated towards the responsibilities tied to them as teachers, they are caring and compassionate towards your little one, and more than willing to go the extra mile.

We believe by creating a home-away-from-home atmosphere on our premises, our children will feel free to express themselves, which leads to inquisitive learners achieving goals.

Curriculum

Ortloff’s adheres to the Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS) of the Department of Education of South Africa.

We also incorporate Montessori inspired lessons within the CAPS, giving the children a wider variety of learning experience.

Each age group has their own schedule, this schedule includes their eating times, educational activities, free play, potty training and toilet routine as well as nap time.

 

Gr RRR – Gr RR (4 – 5 year olds)

As from January 2021, we’ve made a few changes in the Grade RRR and Grade RR classes.
In the past our Grade RRR and Grade RR learners rotated classes every 30 minutes, where they attended different subject classes, this being : Maths, Perception, Art, Gym & Music, Discovery and Reading.

Since COVID19 made it’s appearance, we’ve implemented and adjusted many new health and safety measures as stipulated by government, and due to the safety of our learners we adjusted our daily programme as follow:

The learners do not rotate classes, in order for them to not be in contact with many learners and teachers.
Their register teacher offers all of the subjects as mentioned above.
Their daily programme has been adjusted to ensure continues stimulation and development, therefor more frequent intervals of outside exploration and themed play has  been made available.
