It gives us great pleasure to welcome you with pride to our phenomenal educational offerings at our Early Learning School (ELS) at Reddam House Durbanville. We hope that you glean the high level of education and commitment that has been developed in giving your little one the best possible educational foundation where each child is valued as a unique individual. We are committed to providing your child with every opportunity to learn, develop and form positive relationships in an enabling environment. We look forward to meeting with you as we embark upon this exciting journey together.

We enjoy every moment of our day with all children at our school. We follow the UK Early Years Foundation Stage Framework, which recognises the holistic nature of development and learning with an emphasis on children learning through interaction with people and exploring the world around them. We carefully adapt this framework to make it relevant to South African children and ensure it closely links to the Cambridge Curriculum, which is followed by the rest of Reddam House Durbanville. This approach makes the Early Learning School the most rewarding educational facility in the northern suburbs of Cape Town.

From the outset, Reddam House Early Learning Schools are also influenced by the unique Reggio Emilia approach, recognising and celebrating each child’s innate abilities and gifts. We regard children as competent and capable, and respect childhood as a time to explore, create and be joyful whilst learning. Our Early Learning School environment and classrooms also support the Reggio Emilia philosophy.

We believe that we are ‘doing it differently’. The children are welcomed into each room personally by the educators who support each child in the transition between home and school. The door into the Early Learning School is the ‘hinge’ between the two most important worlds in your child’s life. 

The rooms are calm, beautiful and organised. Each space is carefully resourced with natural objects matched with palettes of paint or jars of crayons with the intention of inspiring each child to explore colour, shape and pattern. Construction areas have the beginning of a building to extend and motivate children into their own buildings and imaginative play. In each corner of each room there is a spark of interest waiting for a child to take this forward and direct their own learning and answer their own questions.

We inspire the children to have confidence and imagination towards how they will proceed with their activities, to become creative and critical thinkers who can learn independently. This is what we believe is the most important part of the education we provide at the Early Learning School. Please do come and visit us, taking part in an individual tour so that we can demonstrate to you how all of our children are learning and enjoying their experiences in our school.

Novelist, Kurt Vonnegut asserted that we should “Enjoy the little things in life because one day you`ll look back and realize they were the big things.” At Reddam House our little ones are our everything! To learn more, watch WE ENJOY THE LITTLE THINGS.
