LEARNING IN REACH
Learning In Reach is a body of like-minded individuals with an interest in making South Africa succeed through education. We aim to empower the future generation with curiosity and a love of learning by ensuring education equality on the belief that this is the foundation for a stronger democracy.
Educational success extends beyond school hours, and school walls. We see the need for a major drive to engage parents and upskill them in order for them to better support the individual child. By offering solutions to the families of learners we aim to drive a shift in the community that drives hope and empowerment.
‘It takes a village to raise a child’ and we cannot disrupt the Early Childhood Development process without addressing the supporting structures, the main one being the child’s parents, as role models and leaders of these young children.
Our vision is a South Africa where our children have equal opportunities to quality foundation education. We have created a blueprint of an educational support structure that opens up true enjoyment and bubbling enthusiasm for learning whilst simultaneously spreading the opportunity for change to the broader community.
The Lavender Hill Project
Montessori Centre South Africa is excited to partner with Learning in Reach and Blue Moon Montessori School to support six unqualified ECD practitioners in completing their Level 5 Higher Certificate in Early Childhood Development with Montessori 3-6 year specialisation in 2018.
We look forward to watching these individuals flourish and have a greater impact on the children of Lavender Hill.
