Baby in care

Little Star Educare Centre

Many of the children who arrive at our Home have not had the chance to grow and develop normally.  A healthy and nutritious diet, suitable exercise and the mental development of our children are therefore of great importance. With this in mind we run a crèche weekdays from 08:00 to 11:45 where we develop the children mentally, physically, emotionally and socially. There are three sections:

  • The youngest children are accommodated in one group until they are three years old
  • Then there is a group for the three to five year olds
  • The third section is run as a pre-primary school where the children are taught according to the Grade R syllabus, thus preparing them for the real school. This is important, because many of the children leave at the end of the year when they turn six and then go straight into Grade 1

We accommodate children from the community at our Educare Centre. This has been very rewarding, because the children integrate very well and all become very attached to their teachers. Our children, in turn, get to know other children.
