Michael Academy - Early Intervention Learning Centre

Leanne Bezuidenhout (Shelly) is currently busy with plans to open Michael Academy - Early Intervention Learning Centre. This centre will be divided into two departments.

Department one will be an Early Intervention Playschool which will be open to all children between the ages of 2 – 5. This Playschool will be a place where children will be stimulated according to Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy goals. Our goal is to provide a loving, safe environment where your little one can be educated according to age appropriate norms.

Department two will be a Learning Centre for Special Needs and will accommodate children between the ages of 2 -6. We would like to increase the age group with time. This Centre will be a place where children with special needs such as Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Down’s Syndrome and Language Learning Disorders will be educated according to an individualised learning program. Each program will be devised with input from various health professionals. Our goal is to provide a loving, safe environment where your child can be stimulated according to his/her specific needs as well as receive various therapies as part of the educational program.

This Academy can, unfortunately, not become a reality until we have raised enough funds. Our first fundraiser has started and we are selling lovely warm infinity scarves for R100 each. Please like our page on Facebook (Michael Academy) to see and order the various scarves as well as keep track of future fundraisers.
