About Bizweni Centre
Bizweni runs as an Early Childhood Development (ECD) centre for children with disabilities ranging from the ages of 2 years old up to 18 years old. Our school caters for all types of disabilities from severely disabled, where everything needs to be done for the child, to moderately disabled where the goal is to prepare the child for mainstream school. Due to many factors there are a number of children whom we have never been able to successfully place elsewhere. We have kept these youngsters on at our centre, which has resulted in children being age inappropriate for an early education centre, and has motivated us into planning the expansion of our centre to incorporate a Skills Development Program. The majority of children coming to the centre are from disadvantaged communities who have no other facilities available to them in the area and would as a result have to stay at home if it were not for the centre.
We offer an ECD education, and where possible the Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement (CAPS) in Grade R and the National Early Learning Development Standards (NELDS) in Grade RR.
