We recognize the importance of addressing the legacy of our past by creating opportunities for our learners through addressing the intellectual, physical, social and spiritual needs of our learners. At Child Academy Programmes, we promote ethos of respect, empowerment and equality inaccordance with the Constitution of our country. We also recognize and value the cultural diversity in our school and affirm that all our children and educators shall be treated equally and with dignity. We shall strive to increase the level of awareness and appreciation of different cultural heritage and ethnic backgrounds of our learners and teachers and create opportunities intended to develop unity and understanding within our school, and in our community. May God bless our school, our learners, our educators, our sponsors and community at large.
The late Isaac L. Mahlatsi, the Founder and Director of Child Academy, had his upbringing in Moteong, Tembisa, where he spent most of his high school years before moving to Alexandra with his family. During his early adulthood, Mr. Mahlatsi embarked on pursuing his passion for youth development. This led him to become the CEO of Thusong Youth Center, located on 12th Ave in Alexandra. He initiated various programs aimed at benefiting the youth of the township. As a result of his dedicated work, many of the young individuals who participated in these programs have gone on to achieve success in their adult lives.
In 1991-1992, Mr. Mahlatsi made the decision to step down from his position to broaden his knowledge and work experience. He aimed to bring his expertise back to the community he cherished and grew up in. It was during this time that the initial stages of the Child Academy Programmes were conceived. From then until his passing, Isaac L. Mahlatsi dedicated his life, knowledge, and time to the development of Tembisa's youth and community. He started from scratch and established an Independent Combined School, known as Child Academy Programmes, which currently boasts an attendance of over 1800 learners.
