We collaborated with the Funimfundo team for a parenting workshop that was held at Wortelgat farm near Stanford on the 20 March with the theme of the day “learning can be fun”. The parents were introduced to brain gym techniques and muscle testing , we did educational games , talked about healthy food choices and about how to enhance healthy child development at home with easy and affordable , every day tools.
Together with headmistress Nandipha we focused on literacy, numeracy, fine motor skills, perceptual skills and emotional development. For each of the themes the parents participated and made learning material they could use at home with their children. It was a great day full of learning and community spirit.
It takes a village to raise a child.
Thank you to all the parents, Nandipha Mtanyana, Liesle Myburgh , Maryanne and Roland and Wortelgat team for the most enjoyable day and delicious food.
