Early Intervention Framework

Curriculum
Lead
Kids
 follows a play-based special needs curriculum and learning approach to early years education.

Academic techniques and interventions focus on providing the fundamental building blocks to improvement and success in educational and global development. Developmental success is enhanced by our unique educational model offering a small-group learning environment.

Age range of school is from 2-12 years

  • We follow an adjusted CAPS curriculum which is individualised to suit each child’s needs
  • Children are grouped in 4:1 up to 6:1 learner to educator ratio
  • Children are grouped according to their skills and abilities to ensure that the group supports continued development of their skills

Your child rotates through 4 areas of learning throughout the day. Goals are set for each of these areas, ensuring that your child’s programme is both individualized and continually developed.

  • Academics
  • Play skills & socialisation
  • Communication
  • Heavy muscle work, fine motor skills and tactile

Each of the four areas is run by a specialist staff member, all of whom are trained to engage and develop students. Due to our model your child has a team of 4 who program specifically for your child.
