Early Childhood Development
South Africa has over 5 million children up to the age of four, and another 6 million between the ages of five and nine. These children are South Africa’s future. They are going to head up homes, communities and businesses in the years ahead.
Educational research has shown that a child’s brain is already developed 80% by the age of four and that they learn their most crucial life lessons and values in the early years of their lives.
Impact kids ensures that two hundred (200) children of Kwaggafontein and Kromdraai are receiving the best possible pre-school education to equip them to lead fulfilling lives and that pre-school teaching standards are being maintained across the board.
Over the years we have realized that the greatest impact on a child’s life happens before he/she turns 7 years of age, and that if we want to holistically nurture and develop children into the best person, we have to start working at a very young age. This is how the need for a top quality pre-school, within walking distance, in Zandspruit, was identified.
Our Pre-School Programme has been running for nine years and we have 60 pre-schoolers, being taught by three qualified teachers in three groups.
