Siyakhula Waldorf Kindergarten
In 2008, a group of mothers opened the Siyakhula Educare. In partnership with Work For Love these mothers were able to develop the Siyakhula preschool into the quality Waldorf initiative preschool it is today.
A child in the first seven years is full of will and learns about the world through play. The five senses are awakening every sight, sound and taste is an experience to explore. A child at play is full of vitality, imagination and curiosity. Play is truly the work of the young child, and the creativity and skill involved in free play are an essential foundation of intellectual thinking.
The Early Childhood programmes are pre academic and address the developmental needs of the young child by creating a beautiful, nurturing environment where the young child can safely explore and create.
Siyakhula uses a holistic approach to education striving to integrate the intellectual, practical and artistic development of pupils.
Siyakhula’s teaching is based on the Waldorf educational impulse which bases its curricula on the young child’s phase of development in each year. The curriculum is designed to help the child through each phase of development so that they are prepared for the world and are empowered to lead fulfilling lives. It is a wonderful privilege for the teacher to be one of the guides that lead the children, in this gentle way, across the bridge between where they are and where they can be.
