Celebrating ten years of quality care at Monteith’s creche in Grabouw

April 2021

What a joy it was to visit Monteith farm in Grabouw on Saturday, 24 April, to join in the 10 year celebrations of their creche facility. The Foundation has been walking a road with the Monteith team all the way since its inception and we're so proud of how far they've come over the past decade. Waitrose Foundation Regional Coordinator, Eleanor Louw, attended the festivities and also participated in the paint project.

Some of the parents whose kids attend the creche came to assist as well, putting a fresh and colourful coat of paint where it was most needed. The outside play area received special attention, salt was worked into the sandpit and the cots were also sanded down. Kids from the aftercare centre sold over 120 hotdogs during the day.

A great day of fun and working together as a community who cares about the facility and value the upkeep of the crèche where kids receive quality care in a stimulating environment.
