Amedeo's Foundation Phase - Gr R

At Amedeo, we know that the Foundation Phase is crucial for laying the foundation for happy future learning. This is why our lesson materials are created with the holistic development of young learners in mind, equipping them with a broad range of skills and abilities.

In the Foundation Phase, we embrace a balanced, broad, and creative curriculum where students are encouraged to challenge themselves and reach their full potential.  We guarantee a warm, exciting, and caring atmosphere, dedicated and challenging teaching, and excellent facilities.  An environment where your child's learning will flourish.  Class sizes are small and flexibility in the timetable ensures a high degree of individual attention.

The teaching style is multi-sensory and the school day is organised around a regular routine, with plenty of opportunity for outdoor time, access to the arts, and the opportunity to perform and participate in sports and fitness activities.  Our staff are warm and enthusiastic and value each student as uniquely special.  Every pupil's abilities and talents are identified and developed, through carefully planned and differentiated tasks, encouraging each individual to become a self-motivated learner and confident communicator. 


CAPS-aligned and Cambridge-enriched lesson material integrate the five learning areas: English, Mathematics, Life Skills, Natural Science & Coding & Robotics.
