Grade R

We like to play and learn!

Grade R is the first year of the Foundation Phase. It is the ideal program for your children to develop a firm academic foundation, until the year in which they turn seven and start Grade 1.

An integrated approach that focusses on learning through play and fun activities.

{
Brainline has developed our own Grade R program (curriculum) based on the CAPS requirements of the Department of Basic Education while allowing you as parent/guardian flexibility. Our program comprises a combination of a Home Language, First Additional Language, Mathematics, and Life Skills, which are addressed holistically with a theme-based approach.
