Project Description

Klippie Kids Pre-School opend it doors 2 March 2006 as a Nursery School with 47 children and 5 staff. The need for a pre-school was immediately seen as the school grows and the project expand to other needs in the community. We are involved in health and welfare projects, skills development, youth development, a second hand shop and teacher training. The outstanding standard of the pre-school is the standard that is followed in the excellence of the curriculum.

Relationships – We believe in co-operation with volunteers. Volunteers run our needlwork project, a homework help project and other projects as the need arrise. A good relationship with Durbanville clinic exsist and they visit the community regularly with a mobile unit for basic services. The relationship between the police and the organization is very good. Members of the Department of Social Development visit the school regularly, and in 2009 the school was registered as a pre-school at WCED.

Goal - The unigue program: J.E.S. Curriculum (Jubilee Excellent Schools) aim to prepare children not only for school but for life. Emphasise is put on how to deal with situations they will encounter. Attention is given to their needs on a wider spectrum than merely the intellectual.We focus on Afrikaans and Xhosa speaking children 3 to 6 years of age.

Intention - The JES curriculum that is offered differs from that of other nursery & pre-schools. The curriculum is based on three components: the Jubilee system (which is based on the Bible’s Creation story), Montessori-apparatus and philosophy and parts of the National curriculum. 

Summary -  With the holistic approach the project has brought  a complete change in the community. Kids receive emotional and intellectual stimulation. The youth receive physical and spiritual stimulation.  Women are trained in new skills. The elderly are looked after with their own unique projects.
