Our caring and inspiring teachers create a secure and happy environment, enabling children to thrive. St Francis ECD provides the perfect foundation for your child’s education where he/she will feel empowered to ask questions, safe to meet challenges and confident to interact with others. Our pupils are given a head start in the ECD as they are expertly guided towards the transition to formal schooling.
Early Childhood Development (ECD) can be defined as the physical, cognitive and social development that a child experiences prior to reaching his/her preparatory school entering age. ECD therefore lays the groundwork for successful learning supporting the child to progress into, and adapt to, formal schooling.
Our approach is one of recognising the inherent holistic nature of the child thus seeking to develop all aspects of every child: social, emotional, intellectual, aesthetic and physical potential. This is implemented through active participation in a structured programme.
