Michael Academy – Learning Centre for Special Needs
Category: Education, Kids
Michael Academy is an early intervention learning centre for children with special needs. We provide a loving, accepting, safe environment for children between the ages of 3-6 who struggle to cope in mainstream schools with big classrooms due to difficulties in social skills, communication and behaviours. We aim to optimise each child’s potential by working with them according to an individualised education plan that has been devised by a speech therapist, occupational therapist and educator. We believe in the importance of a multi-disciplinary team and encourage parents to become an integral part of this team.
Children will receive individual and small group attention as we believe in a low child to teacher ratio. Each classroom will have a teacher and an assistant working with no more than 8 children. Michael Academy is run by a speech therapist who will have big input in the planning of daily activities and programs.
Michael Academy is a registered non-profit organization (140-212 NPO) and public benefit organization (930051237 PBO) . As a non-profit organisation we are subsidising the fees in order to help parents afford the opportunity to provide their children with a treatment program developed by skilled professionals. We are reliant on external funding in order to keep helping those in need. Michael Academy has been opened in memory of a little angel in heaven and we are inspired to help children who are in need of a little extra care and support. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive individualised program that is accessible to a wide range of children and encourages growth in all areas of development.
Cost: R800 entry fee and R1200 fundraising. Total is therefore R2000. You will receive a cycling shirt and a water bottle with your entry. You are welcome to request a raffle form in order to raise the R1200 fundraising fee. The R800 needs to be paid to secure your slot and the R1200 is due by the end of January 2017.
