Who We Are

Legacy Centre was established by Johan and Mariza van Deventer in August 2016 when they were in need for a facility for their son.  Over the past years the centre evolved into a haven where children with different challenges are nurtured and stimulated in a holistic way by an extended team of professionals.

One of the first big steps was to add music as part of its curriculum and this addition means the world to the children.  The individual curriculum of each child addresses the body, mind, life skills and communication.  Each little person has a unique profile, and this profile determines his / her style of processing, the degree to which they can manipulate their bodies, and engage with their environment.

There are building blocks for every new skill a child learns. Each of these building blocks, have their own set of building blocks. And so, you can break down learning into smaller blocks and guide the development of complex skills systematically, when needed. Each child can learn, process and discover the basic dynamics of the natural order, that will help them manipulate and engage the environment.

It is crucial to explore all avenues to address the unique needs of our children with special needs.  Legacy Centre supplies an environment for children to explore, discover, and investigate the world in a style fitting to their profile and interest.  A place where children are guided to develop their natural abilities and skills necessary for negotiating their environment.  Where they can be children…without stressors and judgement.
