Where Learning Is Fun! Tiggywinklers Pre-Primary and Nursery School in Pretoria
The outdoor play area has climbing apparatus, swings, and sandpits, water-play and sensopathic trays to encourage active play and gross-motor development.
In all the classes from the 18 months to Grade R, the teachers make use of themes in order to teach the children concepts in an enjoyable and interesting way. In the Grade R, subject areas are taught on a daily basis with strong emphasis being placed on the development of reading, writing and numerical skills and concepts.
Hearing tests are conducted annually.
Tiggywinklers uses the Letterland Reading Programme in all classes to introduce children to sounds, letters and words.
Daily and weekly developmental games and exercises are included in the class routine. These help to develop ball skills and stimulate gross-motor development, as well as encourage teamwork and sportsmanship.
Music, movement and percussion activities are taught daily and weekly by the class teachers and the principal.
Tiggywinklers children are taken on outings to places of interest and we also regularly arrange for shows to be presented at the school.
