During the course of last year we visited our crèches to help with basic games / educational skills. We were alarmed at how far behind the Grade R children are in terms of fine and gross motor skills. Some struggle with even themost basic of skills like catching a ball and holding a pencil correctly.
Little Lambs proudly setup the Play2Learn Centre, an educational initiative aimed at proactively equipping these children with the necessary skills that are so desperately needed for them to make the transition from pre-school into mainstream Grade 1 environments.
Play2Learn incorporates 4 of the 5 creches in the Little Lambs fold by means of weekly 2 hour sessions, 3 times a week. Volunteers concentrate on and develop Fine and Gross Motor Skills in a safe and happy environment , which we were blessed to have equipped with wonderful educational toys and activities, from a number of generous sponsors.
This year also saw the release of our very own Grade R curriculum, comprising of 4 workbooks each term as well as the necessary stationery and bookbags that were handed out to each learner at the 5 creches we support within DuNoon. Each Term the crèches will be supplied with their 4 workbooks covering the necessary work that these learners will need to prepare them adequately for Grade 1 !
