Shiloh Wallacedene – Wallacedene is an informal housing settlement in the eastern suburbs of Cape Town, South Africa.
Shiloh’s involvement in Wallacedene started more than 21 years ago with a soup kitchen. We were privileged to open two new JES (Jubilee Excellence Schools) in January 2017. This enabled us to provide early childhood education 80 children between the ages of 3 and 6 years of age. Currently we opened 2 more classrooms at each school, accommodating 80 more children.
Jubilee Excellent Schools – The unique -JES curriculum is used at these schools. This curriculum aims to prepare children not only for primary school but for life. They are taught how to deal with situations they will encounter in real life. Attention is also given to their needs on a wider spectrum than merely the intellectual. The programme is aimed at all infants in Wallacedene: Afrikaans, Xhosa and English speaking, between the ages of 3 to 6 years. The quality of the facility and programme is noticeable from the moment one arrives, as their motto states cleanness, excellence and order.
Our Vision – These 2 new pre-schools do not only benefit the children. Women from the community are trained as teachers. This project provides more than 27 employment opportunities, teaching 440 children.
