A predictable routine gives children a sense of security. The use of our pictograms will show the children the flow of activities. We will be running an inquiry based programme using the HEI School Teacher Toolkit adding to it local South African knowledge and diversity that represents our own unique culture and lifestyle. The HEI School Teacher Toolkit is designed to provide progressive early education from Finland, which is reputed to be the best in the world. Incorporated into our Programme are some of the most researched and successful pedagogical educational models including those of Vygotsky, Piaget, Reggio Emilio and Montessori.

Our daily programmes will be relevant to each group. We believe in using each teachable moment within a predictable routine.
