Roots is a community based initiative founded by Catherine Clay, a Remedial Education Specialist with many years of experience in both South Africa and abroad. Roots is pending registration as a Non-Profit Organisation and will operate as a centre that will accommodate learners who do not meet the requirements for other special needs or remedial schools yet still require daily educational stimulation.
Roots is situated on the tranquil Willow Creek Animal Farm, symbolically the Willow Tree is a symbol of strength and standing firm, whilst it faces the greatest of challenges. Here at Roots we aim to offer a firm foundation for not only children but their families too, making their experience one of balance and growth while learning in harmony.
Our Unique Approach:
Roots is offering a unique approach to learning for those with disabilities and learning delays who require customised assistance in order to meet their potential and learning goals.
Together Willow Creek and Roots are working towards making the farm a community educational farm that teaches kids and schools about sustainable agriculture and we are taking steps to become eco friendly
