Orange Farm Day and Night Care Center is an ECD center registered with the department of Social Development as a place of care. The center was established in 1997 operating as a non-profit-organization, catering for children of ages ranging from 6 months to 6 years. Our aim and vision is to promote the Montessori teaching method in our community and we’re also in the process of starting out a Montessori elementary school, which has a number of benefits for our children.
The equipment we require has been difficult for us to acquire due to its expense as we currently have 69 children, being charged R250 per child per month. The money we get on a monthly basis gets used on salaries for the 8 educators we employ, food and electricity for the center to operate functionally. Your assistance in this regard would be highly appreciated and most helpful.
