La Residence supports various child care and early childcare development establishments in the community who look after children while their parents are at work. Most of the children’s parents are in the hospitality or farming industry as Franschhoek is the food and wine capital of South Africa. These establishments aim to provide a caring environment, meals and basic education for children ranging from infants to 6 years old. They are open Monday to Friday from 08h00 – 17h00.
WES-EIND PRIMARY SCHOOL
Wes-Eind is a local Primary School just a short drive from La Residence who focus on education and the well-being of its 570 learners that range from 5 years to 13 years of age. They have 17 dedicated teachers which include 3 cooks that make sure the children receive a plate of food every day. The aim of La Residence is to assist Wes-Eind in expanding educational, cultural and extramural activities that are offered to uplift these children in their growth and development.
We invite you to join on a visit to any of the local schools, which are a short 15 minute drive from the hotel. All transfer are complimentary. You are welcome to make a donation towards an item on the wish list or to take a gift with you. We have gift packs of suitable necessities available to purchase from our curio shop for your convenience. Please note that the crèche is closed during school holidays. If requested in advance we may be able to arrange for guests to view the crèche premises at the times when the school is closed.
La Residence covers the administration costs and 100% of the donations received are put into the projects.
