Our morning playschool hours are from 8:00am to 12:30pm with early drop off permitted from 7:00am Monday to Friday.
The children’s day follows a regular routine although the activities themselves vary on a daily basis. We focus on age appropriate learning that is focused on building school readiness, socialisation, fine and gross motor skill development and of course having lots of fun.
Afternoon care is available from 12h30 to 16h30 (Rondebosch), and from 12h30 to 17h00 (Plumstead) Monday to Friday. During this time, children have a lunch which they bring with them to school. After lunch, there is a compulsory quiet time, or nap time, when they rest and recover from their busy morning. From 14h00, the teachers organise game and activity zones focused on having fun as well as giving the children free time to play together. Children can be picked up at any time during aftercare and parents are only charged for actual hours utilised.
We run holiday school through all school holidays except for 3 weeks over December when we close. The Holiday School is full of fun activities and runs the normal hours (half day and a full day options available). As not all children attend holiday school our teachers are able to rotate running the clubs so that they all have sufficient time off. These clubs are important for many working parents and are open to Twinkles Playschool children as well as their siblings and/or friends.
Private extra-mural activities are available at the school as optional extras. Our current ECA partners are Clamberclubs, Busyballers and Little Kickers.
