We believe that children learn best when they are enjoying themselves, which is why our curriculum is focused on fun activities that encourage development.
We encourage as much interaction between parents, learner and teachers as possible. Hosting events each quarter helps us to know you and your families better, which enables us to fine tune our educational offerings.
Funtasia runs two successful branches which accommodate Babies from 3 months all the way through to Grade R learners.
Funtasia South is based in Pelham and was established in December 2013.
Funtasia Central is based in PMB’s CBD and was established in 2020 due to a growing demand for early childhood development centres.
Closely following the standards set in place by The Department of Education, our Pre-school syllabus is: CAPS for Foundation Phase (CURRICULUM ASSESSMENT POLICY STATEMENTS).
CAPS is designed to develop all our children holistically: i.e. intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially as well as language development. We offer stimulating activities in three important learning areas: Literacy, Numeracy and Life Skills.
Our teachers conduct continuous assessments and bi-annual Assessment Reports. These are issued at the end of the second and fourth terms for Grade RRR, Grade RR and Grade R learners only. As an elite private Pre-School, we strive to add more value to our high calibre of parents. Our high values and standards ensure that our learners receive the best quality of education and care. We limit our learners per class per group. This way each learner receives more individual attention from our qualified and experienced teachers and caregivers. Thus your child receives a more positive schooling experience. The school is more than fully equipped inside with an Indoor Playground. It has all the necessary resources to make the learning environment fun. Funtasia’s founding director, Mrs. Ronnell Stafford-Marais, has been in the Education Industry since 1994 and is extremely passionate about providing a fun learning establishment.
Our Pre-School. Our Family. Our Community
The school works as a team with parents and expects co-operation and support at all times. All enquirers need to be fully aware that we are very strict with our Terms and Conditions which make up our Policies and Procedures. They are not negotiable. It is the parents’ responsibility to ensure that their children come to our school ready to focus with good manners and respect.
