@Sandton-Kids provides a convenient childcare support option not only for residents of @Sandton-Apartments but also for parents who work in the Sandton area – being in close proximity to your child’s school means no pressurised drive through traffic to get from the office to fetch your child after work too. The creche is open from 6:30am to 6pm during the week, with half day and full day options available.
@Sandton-Kids learners are spoiled with delicious, nutritious meals, all cooked on-site by the in-house chef. Included in the daily rate is breakfast, lunch, two snacks and healthy juice and water throughout the day. The @Sandton-Kids app means parents can communicate any dietary requirements or food preferences. Teachers will also keep parents up to date with how their child’s day is going through the app.
Meals are included in the monthly fees, allowing busy parents the peace of mind that their children are nurtured and nourished in a safe and secure environment.
The program focuses on all six Early Learning and Development Areas (ELDAs) and is designed to keep kids engaged. @Sandton-Kids offers an early learning development curriculum called ‘Play Learn Win’, which is based on the NC Framework and ELDAS (Early Learning Developmental Areas), where children are encouraged to learn while playing. A lot of physical and concrete activities will take place, but each child will grow and learn at their own pace. Parents and guardians will receive a report at the end of each term to see how their little ones are doing.
We want to make learning fun. Kids that attend our creche will have access to educational toys that allow them to learn through play, as well as an outside play area. Their activities will cater for their specific age group.
