One of Alex’s oldest early learning centres, Boitumelong Early Learning Centre is now open for registration for the 2018 academic year.

The 35-year-old education centre, which is situated on 6th Avenue, was founded by Thandi Mkhize and prides itself on top recommendations from its clients.

“Our experience is proof that we are doing great in contributing to the future of Alex children,” said Nokulunga Ncube, principal of the centre.

The centre was rated number five in the Gauteng Department of Education’s regional recommendations on early learning centres last year.

“That also is proof that we are one of the best in the community.”

There are currently 11 qualified staff members who take care and teach four classes of children aged between one and six years old.

The children receive two nutritional meals a day which consist of vegetables, starch and snacks after lunch.

They are also treated to delicacies on a weekly basis.

Education is a priority for this English medium centre and Ncube said teachers make sure that the children are taught in a fun way, making it easier to grasp the curriculum.

English, numeracy and life skills are part of the curriculum.

“Our main focus is children from disadvantaged backgrounds who can benefit from what we have to offer.”

Apart from education, the centre also holds fun activities on special days for the young ones.

To make sure that nothing comes in the way of the children’s ability to learn, Boitumelong Early Learning Centre has teamed up with the Alexandra Clinic to screen the young ones for various illnesses.

For parents who are not able to take their children to and from school every day, the centre offers transport at only R200 per month.

From next year, the centre will open at 6am and will close at 6pm so that the young ones can be safe while their parents are still at work.

Ncube said they are also planning to build an educational lab in the centre to introduce Grade R children to technology before they go to big school.

Registration is open until 8 January next year.
