For The Parents

Why register at Angels Academy?

The reason is simple. You want the best care for your child and with us it’s possible. We have the staff, facilities, and daily programme to make sure your child is in good care. Angels Academy is both an English and Afrikaans medium school. The environment of the school is soft and calm. We exist to provide a safe, developmentally appropriate environment for pre-school age children.  Our focus is to provide a stimulating early care and educational experience which promotes each child’s social / emotional, physical and cognitive development.

At Angels Academy we will only have a maximum of 15 babies in the baby centre and for the 1 – 5 year olds, there will only be a maximum of 20-25 children per class.

Classroom Ratios

These classroom ratios allows our  staff to give utmost individual care and attention to the babies and children in our care. This assists our staff to develop effective and meaningful relationships with all children in our care, resulting in more engaged, happy and relaxed children.

Young children need to form a secure emotional bond with the personnel caring for them. Higher child-to-staff ratios means that staff would find it harder to deal with each child’s individual needs. Lessons are designed to be fun and we reinforce it both indoors and outdoors.

If one member of staff is the key worker for many children rather than a healthy ratio with less, the chances of them having to deal with many distressed children at once is higher. Therefor we carefully monitor the ratio at Angels Academy – more happy memorable moments more individual attention.

Our focus point at Angels Academy is to keep a healthy personnel/child ratio to make sure your child gets the best attention that they need.

Staff/Child Ratio:

Babies                          1:5        in our Baby Centre

1 Year                          1:10        per class

2 Year                          1:10        per class

3 Year and older       1:10     per class
