The First Steps at DSS Preschool

035 DSC00050

Each day our preschool is filled with chatter and laughter as 22 children who communicate in 6 different home languages, tumble in and out.

For 5 hours each day, from 8 am to 1 pm, the preschoolers are kept busy with activities such as Bible stories, singing, theme related art and crafts, educational games and free play – inside and out of doors. Group RR are 5 year old preschoolers, who are being prepared for BIG school. Group RRR are divided into two smaller groups: the Rabbits and the Bears. The 4 year olds are Rabbits and Bears are the 3 year olds. Three staff members, Gisela Haux, Beth Thiem and Regina Wey supervise the fun (and work), with part time assistance from Charmaine du Preez and Livia Koller (a volunteer from Switzerland).
