Where Every Voice Is Heard

Where Every Sign Is Seen


At the Gawie De la Bat Pre-school we aim to create an educational, safe and blissful environment for our learners. Here, educators strive to develop each learner holistically. D/deaf learners are admitted from the age of 3 years where they start learning language and communication skills. Likewise, educators aspire to develop each learners’ mental and physical capacity through an abundance of cognitive and physical learning activities.

We pride ourselves on our unique teaching strategies and our ability to provide our leaners with individual educational support. Worth mentioning is the fact that our classrooms consist of a limited number of learners per class and additional teaching assistants are allocated to each educator for optimal support.    

Children are taught to express wants, needs and feelings and to act appropriately.
Physical abilities are improved through activities and toys that develop coordination, mobility and fine motor skills.

Socializing skills are developed through group activities that also teach children to follow instructions, take turns and develop friendships.
Mental stimulation includes recognition of shapes, colours and numbers through toys, games and basic puzzles.
Creativity is encouraged through exposure to a variety of stimulating colors, shapes and textures, including paint and crayons.

Basic activities like scribbling and using paintbrushes also develop fine motor skills.
The next phase includes exploration of number sets, experimentation with textures, smells, and taste; sorting by colours and building reasoning skills.
Preschoolers develop basic self-help skills and independence is encouraged.
