Music

A specialist music teacher runs the music department for the pre-school. An important part of the curriculum is that children experience music in a practical and engaging way. Each class teacher is also trained to run her own music and movement lessons with her class. Each class enjoys a class music and singing session per week. Individual tuition is offered to children from Grade R if they show capacity to manage an instrument.
