About Us

Message from the Principal:

For many of you this will be the first time you and your children will be separated. As they grow up and become more independent, they need security both at home and at school to ensure a smooth transition from the known, their family, to the unknown, the ‘Crawford’ family. Your children are in excellent hands while our trained staff will guide and protect them through the day giving them exciting, stimulating and age appropriate activities.

The...

more you are able to tell your child about  the rules and routines, the more at home they will feel in their new surroundings.

The first 6 years of a child’s life is a unique period, during which the child develops an estimated two thirds of their ultimate intellectual ability. He/she also develops the core of their personality, as well as their social and emotional disposition. Our curriculum and core values take this into account and offer a stimulating, thought provoking and age appropriate curriculum for each grade.

Our aim is to develop the whole child, i.e. physically, spiritually, emotionally, socially and intellectually.

Our school programme offers a balance of free choice activities and teacher directed time. During free choice time, the child is free to choose where he would like to play and with whom, whilst during organised group time, the child and their group, under the guidance and direction of their teacher, participates in a variety of ‘rings’ such as music, movement, environmental education, technology and physical education etc. During this time language, perceptual skills and independence are taught incorporating creativity, communication, collaboration and critical thinking skills.

My door is always open for any queries and questions. Please feel free to come in and chat.

Ros Truelock

TWINS – Behavioural Genetics
Watching a video of twins clinging to and stroking each other as they were washed after birth re-enforced for me that twins have a bond like no other. Whether they are identical or not, twins have shared their environment for nine months and are used to having each other around. But does this mean that …
