Grade R is the first year of the Foundation Phase. It is the ideal programme for your children to develop a firm academic foundation, until the year in which they turn seven and start Grade 1.
Brainline has developed our own Grade R programme (curriculum) based on the CAPS requirements of the Department of Basic Education, while allowing you as parent/guardian flexibility. Our programme comprises a combination of a Home Language, First Additional Language, Mathematics, and Life Skills, which are addressed holistically with a theme-based approach.
This is ideal if you:
