Summer camp is here for Gauteng school kids!

When it comes to Summer Camp, us South Africans immediately think of American movies, where bus loads of pale kids pour out, overloaded with sleeping bags and totes, to experience some or other amazing adventure as they experience a taste of independence. Well, aside from the difference in duration (summer camp in the USA can be seven weeks long), and the twangy accent, that is exactly what school kids in Gauteng are about to experience.

10 things you need to ask about your child’s after school care

While pre-primary and primary schools are regulated in South Africa, after-school care is not. This has led to everyone and anyone running after-school care programmes, which can often result in an unstructured, unsafe and an unhappy environment for your child.

As a young start up team they are endeavouring to build a strong aftercare program. We find them to be professional and effective, providing well planned and engaging activities in the afternoons. Students go home excited and parents have peace of mind that their children are well taken care of and the bulk of their homework has been done. It is a pleasure to work along-side a service provider who is open to discussion, learning and has the Lebone community at heart.
