We at Simbas understand the importance of provising a homely and yet stimulating environment for your child during these important formative years.
We aim to provide a high standard of care on a consistent basis which allows your child to play, grow and develop in a safe, clean and secure environment.
When you leave your child at Simbas you can rest assured that they will be cared for by professionals who believe that children and their needs take precedence.
Simbas partakes in the ECCE scheme. Places are limited and not guaranteed.
A DVD of your child's experience at Simbas is provided annually for all classrooms.
In the summertime a farm visits Simbas to provide a fun day for all involved.
Simbas staff are fully trained in the Buntus Start method of teaching physical activity.
Buntus Start is a comprehensive physical activity programme for children aged 2 - 5 years old. It has been designed for use in pre-school settings so that pre-school and playgroup leaders can provide a wide range of learning opportunities for young children to develop their fundamental motor skills, manipulative skills, co-ordination and balancing skills and develop a positive attitude to physical activity.
In October 2012, Simbas opened a library in our Stradbrook facility. This library allows the children in the Montessori classes to borrow books for a period of up to two weeks. The books available to borrow include a mixture of fiction, non-fiction and educational storybooks.
Staff at Simbas believe reading is an integral part of children's education and feel that this facility will greatly enhance both the children's ability to read and their love of reading.
