If your child is part of a lift club, please arrange for that parent to fetch your child at the pre-school and collect your child directly from the teacher. Pre-schoolers may not leave the premises alone or with another child. Kindly let us know if anyone other than yourself will be fetching your child. We do not open the access gates for people who are not on our list of parents/drivers/caregivers who collect children.
We prepare our food on the premises in our kitchen. We have a dedicated cook who prepares the food daily. Fresh vegetables and fruit are bought from the Fresh Produce Market and bread is delivered directly to our school from Sunbake bakeries. Our water is filtered with all taps having access to filtered water.
We do not allow sweets, fizzy drinks, chocolates and biscuits to be brought to school. We manage all the food at school and parents need not send anything as all is already provided for. We ensure a peanut free environment and there are many children who suffer from food allergies and/or have religious requirements in terms of their food. If parents do want to send food, fruit is a good choice. We do provide teats for the children and also have a baking day every Friday.
Birthdays: We celebrate your child’s special day at school with a Montessori birthday ring for him/her. This is an activity specially for your child on their special day.
