A New Development for the Stay & Play Group

yandRegular readers of our blog will be aware of our Stay & Play group held at Masiphumelele Library. We recently began an extension to this programme with the help of Yandiswa Mazwane, a local art therapist from Masiphumelele. Yandiswa has worked with the popular eMantzi carnival, where she has coordinated community groups working participating in the festival and managed the eMzantsi schools programme.

We are running a pilot of six weeks with two groups of children (33 in total), their care givers and our Stay & Play leaders. Each session will include songs and rhymes, art activities, feedback info sessions with the carers, showing them how to analyse and read the children’s work and monitoring and evaluating the children’s progress.

For these sessions we are taking the children to use the facilities at Masi Educare pre-school. Here are some pictured from the first few sessions. We hope to share further updates on this exciting development as classes proceed.
