Intake consultation – No charge.

Morning classroom programme – R7855 a month for 12 months. The fees for the morning programme include the specialised music sessions and the language-communication groups run by the speech-language therapists.

Aftercare – R1646 per month from 12:30 to 4:00. Aftercare can also be used on an ad-hoc basis and is then charged according to the days and hours attended.

Afternoon language groups (outreach) – Approximately R840 a month, although fees vary according to the number of times a group meets.

PROJECTS REQUIRING ONGOING FUNDING
The Centre relies to a large extent on donor funding, particularly for outreach initiatives. The following projects require funding:

Morning programme – Complete or part sponsorship is required for children whose families cannot afford the fees.

Afternoon language groups – Full or part sponsorship is required for many of the children.

Workshops in language/literacy development – Funding is required to cover the cost of these and there is no charge to the recipients of these workshops.

Student training – With additional funding, more workshops and individualised supervision can be provided to students.

Funding for resources – This includes funding for specialised equipment, staff training and educational and therapeutic resources.
