Little Ashford is every child's dream home away from home. Happy children are active children and with our amalgamation of methodologies from traditional to modern, all learning is conducted with creativity and fun.
Our daily focus - attributes essential to your child's development
We never forget that these attributes are important to you, your child and our reputation:
The Little Ashford Team: we strive to attract and develop competent caring team members who consistently pursue excellence, by operating collectively under a pledge of imagination, innovation, integrity, intellect, integration and influence.
The Little Ashford Curriculum: the continual development and effective implementation of our curriculum is led by a senior academic and training professional, who is an expert in the education of young children and dedicated to the training and development of the team members who serve and care for our children. We measure the effectiveness of our curriculum through: a proprietary school assessment platform; the use of suitable technologies; an alignment to ISASA; and a history of enrolment in leading schools.
The Little Ashford communication App: this bespoke app connects you directly and regularly with your childs progress, keeping you informed throughout the day and providing continuity for you to support and collaborate with the school, as you interact with your child at home.
Little Ashford Food: led by a qualified and experienced professional chef, our Central Kitchen delivers consistency in food preparation, with ongoing menu improvements. Nutritional, high quality, interesting meals enable your child to have sufficient energy to learn and play throughout a busy day.
Little Ashford Hygiene and Health: team members are obliged to maintain hygiene, health and cleanliness standards in our schooling environment at all times. We reinforce this discipline with zero tolerance and all our facilities are subjected to regular internal and external inspections, the latter by local authorities.
Little Ashford Facilities: we maintain, improve and freshen up our learning environments annually as necessary, to ensure that they remain equipped with relevant and suitable apparatus that is child-centric, safe, secure and clean.
Little Ashford Safety and Security: the protection of our children and families is of paramount concern to us. We are committed to high standards in the people, systems and processes that create a barrier of safety and security in a challenging climate of crime and wrongful acts against women and children. Our very alert security officers remain a cornerstone in this endeavour and all staff are subjected to checks against police records and various offenders registries. Panic buttons, security fencing and camera systems are in place to reduce the possibility of unwanted persons accessing our facilities.
Little Ashford Governance: although we strive at all times to maintain a very personal relationship between parents and the principal and teachers of their childs school, Little Ashford functions as highly professional company, fully committed to and compliant with all relevant laws and regulations at all times. Oversight and control is exercised by a highly qualified and experienced board of directors who provide guidance and support to suitably qualified managers, teachers and team members.
Our main is to provide provide accessible and a premium education for all. To achieve this, our schools have adopted different fee structures, enabling us to care for your children in similar environments, using different children to staff ratios, underpinned by the same excellent curriculum. Further detail is provided below (and at your school during your visit):
Lower children to staff ratio:
For children below 2 years of age, the ratio is 6 to 1. This category will typically have up to 12 children and 2 adults in this age group, due to the nature of dedicated care for these young children. Infants, typically below the age of one, may have a ratio of 4 to 1.
For children aged between the ages of 2 and 4 (since they are now more independent), the ratio is up to 3 staff members for 25 children.
For children older than 4 years of age (including Grade-R), the ratio may increase to 1 teacher and 1 assistant for 25 children.
Higher children to staff ratio:
For children below 2 years of age, the ratio is 10 to 1. This category will typically have up to 12 children and 2 adults in this age group, due to the nature of dedicated care for these young children. Infants, typically below the age of one, may have a ratio of 6 to 1.
For children aged between the ages of 2 and 4 (since they are now more independent), the ratio is up to 3 staff members for 35 children.
For children older than 4 years of age (including Grade-R), the ratio may increase to 1 teacher and 1 assistant for 35 children.
Our teachers and assistants are well qualified and trained to handle their classrooms.
