Personal message

Little Forest Centre is a special needs education centre based in Sandton, South Africa. We specialise in education for children with special needs from 18 months to 10 years old. The video attached shows how important our school is to these children. We are a place that prioritises individual attention and therapeutic approaches to learning.

Our children are taught the Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills, the DCAPS and Impaq curriculum, and vocational learning, depending on their capabilities. Our most consistent response from parents is that their children had come leaps and bounds from when they first started with us. On Friday, the 9th of September 2022, our precious centre completely burnt down. Our hearts are broken, and so are our children's. This is a terrifying time for our children as they struggle to adapt to changes in their environments.

At this point, we want to make this process as gentle and calming as possible for our little ones. Very few places in South Africa offer children like ours a place to learn and grow, and it is our prerogative to rebuild and come back stronger and better for our incredible children. 


Donations of any kind are greatly appreciated. Our social media pages have registries of equipment and stationery that we will need to keep teaching and treating our children. Thank you for your kind heart. It means the world to the teachers, staff, animals and most importantly, our incredible children.
