Community Care

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.

Current Projects:

  • Buying of Sporting Equipment – R5000 per school
  • Stationary – R3000 per school (per term)
  • Food Supplies – R5000 per school (Monthly)
  • Playground Improvement – R5000 to R50 000
  • Educational Toys – R5000 per school
  • Christmas Gifts – R200 per child
  • Sponsoring of a guided hike / picnic to learn about conservation in the Franschhoek area – R5000 per school (in conjunction with Cape Winelands Biosphere Reserve)

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 includes 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 in educational, culturalal and extra mural 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 neccessities available to purchase from our curio shop for your convenience. Please not that the crèche is closed during school holidays. If requeted in advance we may be able to arrange for guests to view the crèche permises 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.
