Early Intervention Preschool – during COVID 19 pandemic.

Our preschool is currently closed due to the schools closure for the Covid 19 pandemic. But we are concerned for the children and we miss them……

We are making learning materials and getting them to the families. What a good job the mothers at Nzeve have been so involved in the classroom – now they can be their child’s teacher! Our thanks and congratulations to the mothers who are actively using the activities and helping their child to learn. We hope you will have patience with the children and grow closer together through these unusual days…

Deafness is a serious disability in Zimbabwe affecting children’s communication and education. However, if children and their parents start to learn sign language at an early age, they can learn age appropriate skills and ideas which help them to develop and get ready for more formal learning at school.  Parents find it difficult to think of their little child coming to “school” but they forget that hearing children learn language before they go to school, by playing with others and with their families. At Nzeve we try to replicate the language learning of the home and playground by having people with good sign language surrounding and playing with the children.
