A lot has happened at Beudene Daycare since December 2016. We are so thankful for the involvement of the community and the private sector, without their support we would not be able to fulfil our calling and service to the community of people living with disabilities.
McIntyre and van der Post Attorneys saw it fit to benefit Beudene Daycare with a Social Economic Development (SED) project to improve the outdoor area by adding the following facilities: building a tennis wall, a play-area with artificial lawn, a sand pit and extending the roof of the veranda of the current classroom to provide more shaded space. This is truly such a smart and useful improvement to the current classroom facilities.
Beudene Daycare furthermore also appointed a care worker who uses her expertise and passion to do “brain gym activities” with the learners living with disabilities. She adds value to the Daycare by working 3 days per week.
The stimulation programme at Beudene expanded during this term by adding a few new activities such as Beaux-Arts; Djembe drumming and therapeutic horse riding. All of these activities occur once a week at Beudene Daycare and are helping to approve the skills of the learners living with disabilities.
Beudene Daycare has been using and incorporating sign-language with our Autism learners to better their communication skills. Currently a learner with Autism who also has hearing disabilities, joined the Daycare. The Daycare used this as an opportunity to equip all learners, workers and parents at Beudene Daycare with sign language. Please view Beudene’s Facebook page with regular posts with regards to the meaning of the different signs in the hope to empower the community.
