Parent Partnering

 

At Waterfall Pre-Primary, we acknowledge that the pace of our modern lives, especially for families with young children is fast, sometimes too fast. It is our intention to minimize the peripheral stress for families through our parent partnering philosophy.

Firstly, through our nourishing meals – no more rushing in the morning trying to fill lunchboxes! On-site, we have a large modern kitchen where our happy motivated kitchen team provide a mid-morning snack, cooked lunch and afternoon snack (for our aftercare pupils). The nutritious menu has been designed by a parent, a local leading dietician, embracing low sugar ingredients.

Secondly, our parents love our internal digital communication app – Tadpoles. The easy to use design keeps parents up to date with both current news at the school, as well as reports on progress. Daily photos give parents a peek into the classroom observing our ‘learning through play’ techniques. Other features include viewing the child’s portfolio, marking a child as sick and access to all school notices and general info.

Thirdly to cater for our full-day working parents we offer a comprehensive aftercare facility which runs until 17h00 daily. For those who need to be on the road early or dropping off siblings at our Waterfall Prep and College, we offer an early morning care option from 07h00. We also host a fun holiday care programme for when leave days are short which runs from 07h00 to 17h00, Monday to Friday.

Fourthly we offer a broad range of extramural paid activities from ballet to Playball, which are conveniently based at our school which allows for less driving around in the car and more active fun for your little ones.

Lastly, during the weekends our school is a convenient party venue. Families love our spacious facilities including the state-of-the-art AstroTurf playground, wide verandas which ensure no matter what the weather there is space for little ones to run and giggle and the enclosed baby area. Contact our team at info@waterfallpreprimary.co.za or 082 378 5474 to book your next party!
