Grade R in a box

This package is a MUST have for every 4 to 6 year old child in the country, maybe even in the world!

In 100 activities (all devised by qualified teachers) we guide you and your child on your path to school readiness.

The focus of this package is on language and mathematics, along with attention to perceptual development.

What are the benefits of the package?

  • It is put together in such a way that mom / grandma can easily do it with the child.
  • The apparatus is used repeatedly in different ways
  • We do not focus on mini-projects like other packages, so the use of the package does not end when all the projects or work have been done.
  • This package can easily be used after school as enriching work, but is complete enough to be used with a home program as well.

This package includes:

Wonder what the box looks like on the inside?

The activities set out cover a large part of the 4 to 6 year CAPS curriculum and can be used with great success by the teacher in her class. 

Your box’s content may vary here and there from what you see in the video, depending on availability. (However, the quantities will match the video above.)
