Home Based Infant Stimulation
Our infant stimulation programme supports parents through home based stimulatory and age and stage specific development programmes. Parents are guided on techniques, approaches and activities to implement in their homes to prepare children for life. Crawling, walking, play and independence skills forms the basis of these programmes.
We offer support to blind and visually impaired learners and educators attending or working at mainstream schools.
LOFOB’s preschool centre is located in Grassy Park. Children receive transport to and from the centre and participate in educational and creative sensory development programmes, baking activities, physical education, Braille literacy, and orientation and mobility training. Educational excursions include visits to animal farms, fire stations, and boat trips. The opportunity to improve sensory awareness is promoted through these outings. Our preschool camp forms part of our recreation programme at the beginning of each year. Our preschool teacher and teacher’s assistant are centre-based and are constantly involved.
