The Foundation Phase consists of learners from Grades 1 to 3. A maximum of 12 learners per class are accommodated. Class groups include:
- One Afrikaans class per grade (Grades 1 to 3)
- One English class per grade (Grades 1 to 3)
The educators are assisted by five additional adult class assistants, depending on the need.
This phase follows exactly the same curriculum as mainstream schools, with much individual attention provided to learners and adjustments being made to accommodate all learners according to their special needs.
