All academic activities at Boempie are taught by nursery school teachers assisted by practitioners with qualifications to teach and care for infants to Grade R. The teachers and practitioners do the complete “National Curriculum”, CAPS nursery school sillabi, as well as Reggio Emilia, AECYC, Dr. A. Wentzel, Bossie and Bessie program with every child on own unique level of development. Every child gets a report at the end of every term and a certificate at the end of the year. Teaching takes place indoors as well as outdoors depending on the weather and no child is ever left alone because here are enough staff members. The older the group the more responsibilities the children get as leaders to lay the table, disribute food and tidy up.
