Paediatric Hearing Loss Information Day, 31 August 2018

Learning language is fun at the Carel du Toit CHAT Centre, August 2018

CHAT parents and their children took part in experienced based learning, facilitated by Early Interventionist – Mariette Nosworthy. The task of the day was to strategize along with their little ones on how to get lemons out of a tall tree on the CDTC grounds. Parents thought long and hard and came up with all sorts of ideas, while communicating their actions with their children at all times as part of language development. Parents jumped, climbed, put their kids on their necks, stood on dustbins and even hit the lemons out of the tree with a scooter.

They enjoyed the rewards of their labour by making some refreshing lemon juice. The activity was enjoyed by parents and children alike, learning language is so much fun at Carel du Toit CHAT Centre.

Just look at our star! He won gold for fighting and bronze for his Kata in the Karate National Championship in Stellenbosch this past weekend. If he keeps it up, he goes through to the next round in September and might be selected to represent South Africa in Malaysia next year. We are so extremely proud of you and supporting you along the way!

Lottie Doll Donation, May 2018

Our kids enjoy playing with our 2 Mia dolls from Lottie Dolls. The kids identify with these dolls and that makes them all the more special! Thank you so much Hearing Health Foundation for spoiling us with these two dolls – all the way from New York, we love them!

Farm Animal Week, May 2018

Farm animal week is a serious favorite!
”It was so special to see how some of the children overcame their fear and were brave to touch animals and how others were in their element chatting to and feeding the animals. They loved it! And now they what a meeeee looks and sounds like in real life and a hip-hop-hop! And a baaaa!”

As the week continued, we had such fun making our own mud for our pigs and piglets to roll in!

Air Mercy Service Visit, March 2018

Our Grade Rs heard the helicopter and were treated to an impromptu learning opportunity! Thanks Air Mercy Service (AMS)! One of the best things about our location is how close we are to the emergency services at Tygerberg Hospital.
