Ashbury College Early Childhood Development Centre

Our ECD centre is more than just a drop-off pre-school. We provide a secure, stimulating and flexible environment in which children may develop socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively.

Message From Our Lead Teacher

At Ashbury our ECD program firstly recognizes that every child is an unique individual who learns and develops at his/her own pace and manner. At the ECD centre our teachers strive for a holistic education. We encourage gross motor exercises on the outdoor equipment as well as fine motor activities in our spacious classrooms. We do this in a warm, kind and nurturing environment.

Welcome to our ECD centre

Early Childhood Development (ECD) can be defined as the physical, cognitive and social development that a child experiences prior to the learner reaching his/her preparatory school entering age. ECD therefore lays the groundwork for successful learning supporting the child to progress into, and adapt to, formal schooling.

Our approach is one of recognising the inherent holistic nature of the child thus seeking to develop all aspects of every child being social, emotional, intellectual, aesthetic and physical potential. This is implemented through active participation in a structured programme.
