To be the independent school of choice in the community we serve
To parents looking for affordable quality private education, we offer academic excellence through committed staff in an inclusive, safe and secure environment
The school curriculum is 100% based on the national curriculum(CAPS) as well as Regio Emilio. The chlidren learn through play and we focus on the education of the whole child. The learners are capable of constructing their own learning and they learn through interaction with their immediate environment. The learners are encouraged to express themselves through their work.
We always treat learners, parents, educators, staff and other stakeholders with care and respect
We always do what we say
We finish what we have started
We always do our best and try to improve on what we do
Art is an integral part of our curriculum as we are firm believers in the great impact creativity has on fine motor skills and abstract thinking which lead to better problem solving skills. We work to unlock every learner’s creativity and imagination. At our preschool we give learners many opportunities to experiment with various art materials and creative ideas. Learners are given time to cut, paste, mould, build, paint, draw and let loose with their imagination! Learners are encouraged to express themselves through their work.
How can one bake and make healthy things without the right ingredients? At Amberfield College we have our very own veggie garden where learners are taught about various plants and vegatables and how they grow. Our learners are actively involved in maintaining our garden by watering and getting rid of all those unwanted weeds. This also teaches our learners responsibility.
Our Preschool offers loads of Sport and Cultural activities to choose from, and the best of it all is - it comes at no extra cost! Our sport activities for the Gr RRR-R learners include soccer, netball, cricket and tennis. We also offer swimming lessons to all our preschool learners as we believe that every child should be taught how to be water-wise. On the culture side we offer music to our learners as well as movement to make sure they get their bodies moving and active.
At Amberfield College we believe in giving back to the community. Learners donate food to the less fortunate on Mandela day. They also donate food, blankets and toys to Wetnose, as well as Dog Town and other deserving charities.
Each term we have educational puppet shows, where we teach the learners about important values and interesting facts about our themes. We also get a visit from the firemen who teach the learners how to be safe during a fire. A visit from the Mobile Zoo and the Incredible Dog Show teach the learners all about animals and how we should care for them.
Hard work is rewarded with fun days! We like to dress up, watch movies, have teddy bear picnics, funky hair days and loads more.
We follow GDE terms: 4 Terms per year
