Victory Pre-Primary School

Victory Preschool is the feeder school for Victory Christian Academy, set in the heart of La Lucia, Durban North, just a stone’s throw away from Umhlanga. It is a Christian pre-primary school where education is based on the Bible and dedicated to seeing each student discover their God given destiny.

A Christian value system based on the character traits observed in the life of the Lord Jesus Christ is at the core of the school’s philosophy, using the Accelerated Christian Education Programme (A.C.E) from the Grade R year to Grade 12. The Grade 000 (3-4 year olds) and the Grade 00 (4-5 year olds) groups' programmes run according to weekly themes, also based on the character traits of Jesus.

Victory Preschool - Developing Your Child for Future Learning

The desire of Victory Preschool is to develop the whole child as it is believed that every area of the child, be it physical, social, emotional, intellectual or spiritual, are equally important. There is, therefore, a continual striving to provide opportunities to enhance all of these areas on a daily basis. A student’s day at Victory Preschool is a busy one. Activities on offer ensure students get the opportunity to develop many different skills. Break time offers structured play with many choices, from water play to playing on the jungle gym to building with blocks and there is even a little shopping corner! Young learners enjoy the feeling of achievement and success as this will grow a positive self- concept through the opportunities and challenges placed before them.

While the aim for the learners is to experience all challenges successfully, the focus is placed on these challenges being done with fun and enjoyment, without placing them under undue pressure. The Grade R programme is an excellent and unique one as it is based on the phonetic reading system, thus enabling every child to have an excellent preparedness for learning to read in Grade 1. This, however, is a challenging programme and it’s recommended that children do not advance to Grade R before they turn 6 years of age in that year.

Much emphasis is put on working with the parents so lines of communication are always open. At this preschool it is believed whole-heartedly, "train up your child in the way he should go". (Proverbs 22:6) This is an awesome task and one Victory Preschool does with absolute pleasure and joy. The children and teachers as well as the principle, Mrs Kathy Fry will enjoy every moment!
