After President Mandela came into power and we became a democratic country, I opened a Pre-school in Mdantsane to help the previously disadvantaged children, aged 3-6 years prepare for English formal Education in Model C English schools. After 25 years of teaching Primary and Pre-Primary education in English South African Government Schools, I immediately recognised the disadvantage of the little Xhosa speaking children who were suddenly faced with a new language of education. Thus Little Anchors Academic was born to bridge the gap. We aim for equality for children to have a strong English foundtion to cope well at English schools.
