Redhill Early Learning Centre – A World of Possibilities!
Comprising children from KG1 – Grade 1, the ELC is a four-year phase within a warm, affirmative, child-focused, and innovative environment. We have an intentional focus on the Core Subjects within the Early Years Curriculum and are inspired by the Reggio Emelia philosophy.
Curiosity, imagination, discovery, and active exploration are stimulated through play and relevant, meaningful learning experiences.
“Children are born learning! We believe in creating the spaces to continue this growth of intellectually inquisitive children who are eager to discover their world, problem-solve challenges and adapt to changes in their environment. It is about the child at the centre, the essence of how we grow each child within a social context, and the critical relationships we build together while creating a sense of belonging and responsibility to our learning community”.
Redhill ELC is inspired by Reggio Emilia, an educational experience in Early Years Learning where the child builds knowledge and constructs learning together with the teacher.
Redhill is passionate about teaching students to communicate in a black African language. As such, each of our co-teachers in Grade 0 and Grade 1 are fully bilingual and teach the children both English and isiZulu.
Redhill’s focus on the social and emotional wellbeing of students underpins all that we do. This is especially key in the pivotal Middle School years when our students require support on a number of levels.
