The Learning Initiative and Care Up to work with our learners
Wednesday, February 13, 2019
Great news for iThemba: Thanks to The Learning Initiative and Care Up for offering to work closely with our 4-5 year old group! They started with assessments on each child to see who needs further assistance. Thereafter the occupational therapist works with the children for the rest of the year to boost their learning. They also offer parents support and give them tips to assist their children at school. Seen here are Talia and Sophie guiding Iminathi through an assessment.

They made all the arrangements, provided each child and adult with a goodie bag filled with fruit, fizzy drink, water, sweets, chips, muffin, as well as a hotdog and juice for lunch.
