  • Welcoming place that educates each child.

    Early Learning Centre - Mission

    Our Mission is to facilitate a welcoming, caring environment in which the educational and therapeutic needs of children with special educational needs (SEN) can be addressed optimally.We also want to provide an individualized learning environment that continuously challenges every learner’s unique strengths in the classroom and to enable the learner to develop to the best of his/her ability and potential. 

    We want to empower parents and/or caregivers of children with special needs and improve the quality of life of the whole family: the learner, parents, siblings as well as the extended family. 

    We also want to support the global development of each learner; moral, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical.

    What we aim to achieve

    We aim to minimize the impact of each  learner’s individual special educational needs by working in close partnership with other key role players and by implementing Individual Education and Development Plan (IEDP) strategies.

    And to enable each learner to have meaningful and successful access to the whole curriculum (of which the National Curriculum is a part) and to monitor their progress within it.

    We want to promote the social inclusion of all learners and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life as pertinent to the circumstances of learners with special educational needs and help them gain access to the notion of continuing, lifelong learning.

    We ensure that the organisation of the Centre will enable good standards special educational needs provision accessibility by the learners.

    We want to develop as a centre of excellence in the education, care and therapeutic treatment of learners with special educational needs and facilitate effective partnerships working with other key role players in the field of special educational needs and disability and help promote the notion of service accountability and quality assurance across the range of specialist provision.

    We aim to provide high standard special needs education accessibility to the learners.

    Our Objectives

    Our objective is to provide education to learners experiencing barriers to learning to the highest possible standard and to provide learners with a daily educational and holistic development program as well as an after-care facility.

    To enable learners with disabilities to reach and maintain their optimum physical, sensory, intellectual and/or social function levels long term and to provide learners with developmental disabilities with the tools to enhance their lives and giving them a greater degree of independence, well-being and self-confidence. We want to empower children to help themselves and become independent adults.

    We also want to provide a safe and nurturing environment for each learner and encourage equality and promote change in attitude towards people with disabilities. We also aim to enforce personal dignity and human rights.

    We also aim to provide mechanisms to ensure effective monitoring and evaluation and to co-operate with provincial government on matters of policy. We aim to work in line with the Western Cape Educational Department.

    We also want to provide a structured holiday program to our learners.
