Ability to grow and thrive

Our learners, like trees stand tall and strong; spreading their roots deep
and stabilising themselves in order to weather the toughest of storms.

Giving our learners a voice

Our learners want to be heard. We make use of AAC in order to
allow our learner’s to have a voice in whichever manner suits them as they may not be
able to verbally express themselves.

Nurturing hearts and supporting families

The Centre has a holistic approach, directing its efforts not only towards the development
of the learners but also towards the support of families with special needs children and creating
awareness in the community to better understand special needs education.

FUNctional Movement

Creating opportunities for movement in many different ways and
as often as possible. Focusing on ACTIVE instead of PASSIVE movement.
Gross Motor Activities, Tumbling, Independence, Balancing, etc.

Sensory spaces

Individualised sensory environments are set out to meet the unique needs of each learner.
Providing them with environments where they can self-regulate.

Equipping young adults

Assisting young adults by equipping them with the skills needed to empower them to be independent and to feel
accepted in society. Skills include Self-care, home(domestic) skills, community skills (shopping/road safety),
interpersonal skills, leisure skills (downtime) and future work-based skills.

Our Amazing Classes

 

Apricot Tree Centre is committed to the stimulation and development of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

 

Apricot Tree strives to provide the highest quality service; enabling each learner to reach their full potential. We cater for learners with unique disabilities who are often not accepted in the public or mainstream special needs schools.  As each learner is unique and they have different needs, an ISP (Individualised Support Plan) is set up to establish specific attainable goals and is designed to enable the highest level of development.

We keep our classrooms to a maximum of 7 learners per class. This ensures that learners receive the maximum educational benefit possible.

As each learner is unique and they have different needs, an IEDP (Individual Education Development Program) is set up for them establishing specific attainable goals and is designed to enable the highest level of development.

 

The Centre has a holistic approach, directing its efforts not only towards the development of the learners, but also towards the support of families with special needs children.
