The Noel Stanton Educare Centre was opened in 1996 by the Catholic Welfare and Development. Located in Ravensmead, Bellville in the Western Cape, the crèche gives care to the children in the community helping parents who can't afford to be full-time caregivers to their children.
The school operates at the moment with approximately 78 children during the day (from 7am – 8:30pm) with aftercare at present for 17 children. These numbers change almost weekly but consistently go up. The youngsters spend their afternoons in a safe place with plenty of activities rather than unsupervised at home or on the street. Most of these children come from single-parent homes and as you can imagine life is very difficult for all concerned.
We aim to provide each child with either a jersey or tracksuit and the babies with blankets. These children, their parents, teachers and the community really appreciate all the support that they receive. Any contributions that you would like to make would be more than gratefully received. To donate call 063 946 9023 or visit 9 Myrtle Street, entrance on corner of Erica Lane and Uitsig Avenue, Ravensmead, Uitsig.
