@Sandton-Kids… where ‘Play, Learn, Win’ is the norm

by Media Xpose

In the heart of Sandton you will find @Sandton-Kids, a safe and nurturing environment for kids between the ages of 4 months and 5 years. The creche is located within the @Sandton precinct on Benmore Road which is also home to @Sandton-Apartments and @Sandton-Hotel.

“We want to make learning fun,” says Clarissa Louw, the head of @Sandton Kids. “Kids that attend our creche will have access to educational toys that allow them to learn through play, as well as an outside play area. Their activities will cater for their specific age group.”

The Nuts and Bolts

@Sandton-Kids provides a convenient childcare support option not only for residents of @Sandton-Apartments but also for parents who work in the Sandton area – being in close proximity to your child’s school means no pressurised drive through traffic to get from the office to fetch your child after work too. The creche is open from 06h30 to 18h00 during the week, with half day and full day options available.

@Sandton Kids learners are spoiled with delicious, nutritious meals, all cooked on-site by our in-house chef. Included in the daily rate is breakfast, lunch, two snacks and healthy juice and water throughout the day. For weekends, parents and guardians can select their little one’s meals in advance from the hotel menu. The @Sandton Kids app means parents can communicate any dietary requirements or food preferences. Teachers will also keep parents up to date with how their child’s day is going through the app.

The four classrooms are design with for distinct age groups in mind and each has a corresponding play area equipped in an age-appropriate way. Meals are included in the monthly fees, allowing busy parents the peace of mind that their children nurtured and nourished in a safe and secure environment.

Active Learning

The program focuses on all six Early Learning and Development Areas (ELDAs) and is designed to keep kids engaged. @Sandton Kids offers an early learning development curriculum called ‘Play Learn Win’, which is based on the NC Framework and ELDAS (Early Learning Developmental Areas), where children are encouraged to learn while playing. A lot of physical and concrete activities will take place, but each child will grow and learn at their own pace. Parents and guardians will receive a report at the end of each term to see how their little ones are doing.

Child Minder Services

Parents can make use of the Child Minder Services at the @Sandton Kids creche while exploring everything that @Sandton Lifestyle has to offer. Should you require the services of a child minder over the weekend, make sure to book by no later than Thursday so that staff arrangements can be made, and meals ordered. Over the weekends, children will receive breakfast, lunch and snacks from the @Sandton Hotel kitchen which can be pre-selected by a parent or guardian from the @Sandton Hotel menu

Holiday Care Programs

While @Sandton Kids mainly caters for children up to 5 years during the school term, during holiday times the creche transforms into a space where kids under the age of 16 can spend time in a safe environment – perfect for working parents. The fun-filled holiday programme will keep children busy with games and play that cater to each age group. There is a separate activity room for teens where they can watch age-appropriate movies, show their gaming skills on PlayStation or Nintendo Switch, read a book on e-readers, or enjoy other fun activities in their own supervised space.

It really is so much more than just a creche, @Sandton-Kids makes perfect sense when every childcare need is met on-site!
