Afternooncare

A typical day begins at 1 p.m. with everyone eating a warm meal together, followed by a break and the homework time. The activities throughout the year are based on Waldorf Pedagogy and its festive activities. Some of these activities rounding off our days at 17:30 are: Crafting, painting, baking, knitting, circus, dancing, gardening, various games and outings.

Nurturing the German language is a significant aspect of the Afternoon Care program. In addition, the communal activities are geared towards strengthening the sense of community and developing social skills.
 The program is overseen by an educator and two volunteers from Germany.

At present we cater for 22 children from Pre-Primary up to Grade 6, girls and boys from various cultural backgrounds. At present the program takes place in the Honey house and we make use of the facilities within the primary section and the beautiful grown school ground.

Since its founding in September 2009 we had constantly adjusted our program to the needs of the Namibian child. We are looking forward to celebrate our fifth year of founding and the upcoming new building for our new “Honey House” in 2015.
