Pre-primary school for kids in Bluff - Established in 1946
Pandora Pre-Primary School was founded in 1946 as a result of the exceptional vision of a group of Bluff residents who realised the need for quality Pre School education for their children. Registered with the KwaZulu-Natal Education Department, who employ the senior educators our teachers hold 4 year teaching diplomas and/ or degrees. Not only are some of our educators Pre-Primary trained specialist educators, but we remain current with the CAPS Departmental Curriculum. Workshops are held by the Department and the various Teacher Unions where the various requirements of the curriculum are cascaded to the educators.
The Pandora educators have been teaching in the field for many years and are extremely experienced. The same staff have been employed for many years providing stability in the school environment.
The school environment & facilities for kids
The school garden is spacious which allows for large climbing equipment and many outdoor activities to cater for the child's physical development. Because of the many trees the garden is well shaded providing cool, restful areas for learning through the senses and experimental activities. Outdoor rings focusing on various skills are held in the garden as well as picnic snack time.
The extensive covered verandah areas provide places for the various kinds of drawing and colouring in activities as well as tables on which manipulative toys are used.
The children are grouped according to their ages and the programme is adapted to their specific needs and abilities. Each group has their own “home base” area. There are five groups - the 2 year olds in the yellow Group, the Orange and Green groups of 3 to 4 year olds, which are the “skills groups” and the 2 Blue and Red Grade R groups.
A large Fantasy area provides an opportunity for the children to explore play where the imagination is the focus. This area houses the dolls' corner the Shop, the 'Hospital” various animal and train sets and wooden toy vehicles of various kinds. The theme tables displays are in this area. These form the basis of the teaching and learning that is carried out during ring and story time.
The creative area houses 6 activities that are set out every day, ie. painting, cutting and pasting, dough modelling, anti-waste construction as well as a teacher directed main activity. Through creativity the child's thinking is expanded to produce unique designs. The children are able to choose which of the activities in which they wish to participate
The cognitive area is spacious, where the puzzles, manipulative games, block constructions, music centre, instruments and piano are used. A cognitive table is set out with concept learning activities and displays, with which the children can experiment. This area also has a stage on which work tables are set for the school readiness activities of the Grade R's. This also houses a book corner for quiet 'reading' times.
