African Angels has always been about the children, not just their education, but also their development as little people. We have learned a lot over the years as different situations and circumstances arise and are forever seeking out best practise to help each child reach their full potential.
We are excited to have linked with Think Equal, a program built upon much research in the areas of social and emotional learning. The optimal window when change of attitudes and behaviour are highly effective because of the development and flexibility of thinking, is between the ages of 3 and 5, and so we will be including Lindiwe and our Grade RR’s into the program.
Our teachers will be having online training this term. Some of the topics that will be covered are emotional literacy and self-regulation; self-esteem; peaceful conflict resolution and problem solving; empathy and kindness. Looking at the world around us, I would say these are vital aspects for us to be including in a holistic approach curriculum. We look forward to observing the impact this will have on our children.
