CREST (Centre for Remedial Education and Support Therapy)
Crest is a specialised remedial centre that focuses on providing a nurturing learning environment for children in Primary School (Grade 1 to Grade 7) who require remedial support. Any child has the capacity for greatness- provided that they are given the right tools to succeed. We aim to provide a solid learning foundation by ensuring that the basics are fully understood before moving on to more difficult areas of learning. A child's sense of self-worth and confidence are vital to their ability to successfully comprehend any subject. Any underlying issue that creates a learning barrier to a student will become more and more ingrained -which leads to frustration, self-doubt and lack of motivation unless swiftly addressed.
Class sizes are kept small to ensure that each and every child receives individual attention and scholastic intervention during the learning process; this provides our teachers with the opportunity to fully engage with our students, recognising any learning difficulties and empowering them to overcome their weaknesses. We use the CAPS curriculum which is adjusted to suit the specific needs of each learner.
We have an on-site Occupational Therapist and Speech & Language Therapist.
At Crest we aim to empower our students to become mentally, socially and emotionally adept at overcoming any challenges they may face, by providing a safe learning environment.
In addition we work on expanding their comfort zones by exposing them to new stimuli and environs so that they learn how to cope with any situation, simultaneously ensuring that any child has a safe place to retreat to if there is any kind of sensory overload. Our teachers are trained to help assist your child overcome their obstacles in a relaxed and non-threatening environment.
CREST uses a hands-on approach to learning, with plenty of opportunities for individual tutoring and/or mentorship as required by the student.
