Extra Mural Activities

Bryanston Montessori pre-school has an extensive extra-mural program that is made available to children.

We offer the following extra-murals:



This is an extramural where children love and will develop skills needed for school and life. Struggling with skills that are not properly developed can lead to a child suffering unnecessary stress at school and later in life.

Using pottery and some craft lessons, many important skills are practiced during lessons with Kids Pottery Hub. We have included a motor-skills development program in their exciting lessons. With careful planning and knowing how to enhance these very important skills, Kids Pottery Hub gives its lessons with specific goals. As with any skill that must be accomplished, practice is fundamental; thus, our lessons are ongoing.

Creativity Development: Children are motivated to solve their own problems that creations will present.
Fine-Motor Development: Muscle strength, hand function, hand co-ordination, hand skills, and eye movements.
Cognitive Development: Concepts like shapes, numbers, colours, attention, concentration, and memory.
Emotional Development: Co-operation, experience, and expression.
Perceptual Development: Shape and space perception and directionality.
Life Skills: Ensuring children evaluate their results, identify and have the opportunity to self-correct, and know they must organize and be responsible for their workspace.



Kindermusik has been voted the best international early childhood music and movement program. Based on decades of research since 1978, experts, therapists, child psychologists, and musicians have developed each activity.

The programs are all age-appropriate and incorporate basic school concepts.

Having Kindermusik in the early years can profoundly impact a child’s life. It contributes significantly to musical, physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development. The program is based on the belief that musical activities stimulate growth in every area of the brain and nurture the whole child’s development. Activities are designed to encourage multi-sensory learning, simultaneously employing and integrating several senses and stimulating multiple brain areas.

“Changing the world one child at a time.”



The primary aim of DANCE MOUSE is to encourage children to enjoy dance expression and to increase their passion and love of dance. Should children only want to dance for fun (whether talented or not) or to do exams and competitions, they can choose.

  • They are teaching children technique and rhythm and increasing their overall self-confidence.
  • Dancers are exposed to proprioception skills and various other activities that enhance their sensory, vestibular (balance), and gross motor skills at a steady and controlled pace. Vagus nerve-centering techniques are used to self-calm and refocus.
  • Offers a solid foundation of dance, body, and spatial awareness. Dancers become aware of their bodies, limitations, and strengths.
  • It is a great emotional release and cardio workout for both boys and girls, offering them an overall sense of well–being.
  • Dancers achieve all the above while dancing to the latest music and, most importantly, having loads of FUN!



Playball is a sports program that is age-appropriate and covers critical life skills and the fundamental physical development of young children: stability (balance), locomotion (movement), and manipulation (ball skills).

The small class numbers (maximum of 8 children in a class) facilitate personal attention and individual development. Our mission statement embodies our approach to learning and how the responsibility of teaching the children weighs on us as teachers and sports coaches.

Playball’s mission is to use sport to develop every aspect of a child’s life. The program includes various skills that prepare the children for confident and competent sports participation in all popular ball sports.
