ROOM TO BREATHE. SPACE TO GROW.
Leap School is situated almost on the corner of Zeiss and Zefania Roads, Honeydew Ridge. During 2019, Foundation Phase (Gr 1-3) will be housed in the redesigned school hall. This beautiful, spacious facility has wooden floors, high ceilings and plenty of natural light, as well as private bathrooms for our Gr R-3 learners.
Further facilities will be developed for expansion beyond 2019. This will include a sports complex, swimming pool, high-tech makers lab, art studio, outdoor student theater and other facilities. Leap plans to expand to include all primary school grades by 2020 (Gr. R-7), and to open the doors to its middle and high schools by 2022.
LEAP NURSERY AND PRESCHOOL
AWESOME SINCE 2016
Leap Nursery and Preschool opened in 2016 and currently has only limited spaces available.
We welcome babies from three months into our peaceful nursery. In this caring home-like environment we incorporate baby sign language, strict hygiene and safety procedures, as well as baby massage.
Once your baby is steady on their feet, we move him/her to a separate section in our Nursery where all our recently walking ones are cared for. When they are ready, they are transitioned over a 4 to 6 week period to our Purple Class to join our 1 to 2 year old toddler group. This approach ensures that these big life changes are as stress-free as possible for each child.
For children age 1 to 5 our curriculum has been carefully designed to incorporate the most valuable concepts of Piaget, Montessori, Erickson and Reggio Emilia. We offer rich play and learning experiences in a nurturing and safe environment, including Art, Music, Science and Physical Education as well as early literacy.
Our facilitators and caregivers focus on acknowledging and empathising, allowing expression, listening to feelings, teaching problem solving and using role play to aid in understanding complex emotions. This approach helps your little one grow into a happy, confident and engaged child.
Leap Nursery and Preschool welcomes children from 3 months to 5 years old. Leap Academy will be developed on the same property as Leap Nursery and Preschool and will accommodate children from Grade R (the year your child turns 6) – 7 years old.
Show Private Schools. We show private schools detail from all over South Africa because you need to find the best school for your child. We include the telephone number as well as when available the website link.
The South African Schools Act (SASA) of 1996 established a national schooling system and recognised two categories of schools: public and independent. Public schools are state controlled and independent schools are privately governed. All private schools were included into the independent school category.
