About

 

The concept of My Little Monkey Nursery School was developed in August 2014, an existing nursery school was purchased and new life breathed into the facility, in response to local demand for high-quality full daycare. It's goal and main focus is to develop an excellent local reputation and expanded into other area's of Gauteng. My Little Monkey is a family-run business that can react quickly to local needs but more importantly can respond personally to the families that it serves.

Setting a benchmark for all other nurseries

We genuinely want our nursery & pre-school to be the best and we want nursery & pre-school experiences to be memorable and fun. We realise that it is vital that we earn the trust and confidence of you, the parent and that you are happy with what we do and how we do it. Together we can produce happy and confident children who enjoy living in a culture that nurtures and values the importance of a happy childhood and gives children the opportunity to maximise their full potential and become well-rounded citizens of the world.

THE CURRICULUM 

 

 The IPC (International Pre-School Curriculum) believes that due to the progressive nature of education, the best forms of education continue to evolve. Therefore, in order to recognize the latest advancements in brain research, pedagogy, motor development, nutrition, and psychology the IPC seeks to incorporate these elements wherever possible. The IPC also draws influence from several recognizable and established philosophers and psychologists, some of which are listed below.

Key Characteristics of the IPC:

  •  Objective Based – The curriculum has clearly defined objectives which are designed to facilitate assessment and highlight areas of student progress or concern;

  •  Inquiry Based – Limited aspects of inquiry based education designed to spark and maintain interest levels;

  •  Play Based – By making learning fun, children are exposed to a learning environment that is second nature;

  •  Developmentally Appropriate – The IPC believes that all children develop at varying paces not necessarily defined by age;

  •  Family Involvement – The IPC believes that families should be at the center stage of their child’s education;

  •  Content Learning Areas – 6 content learning areas and approximately 20 subjects ranging from agriculture to mechanics;

  •  Peer reviewed - All materials are reviewed by academic peers to ensure rigor;

  •  Updated Regularly – As a living document, the IPC regularly edits and refines its curricula materials. New units to strengthen core skills are added annually;

  •  International – As a curriculum that was designed with an international audience in mind, the IPC has a special focus on internationalism, multilingualism and diversity.
