Our Parents

Our parents and families are an essential component of our learner’s achievements and the school reform.  At DreamTree good communication between teachers and parents is fundamental.

Frequent e-mails and scheduled IEDP meetings with parents, keep parents up to date and involved in their child’s progress and growth strategies moving forward.    Our parents are active members in their child’s growth, contributing towards the progress in their child’s Development programme.

DreamTree created a parent whatapp group, administered by one of our parents.  On this platform school related information and communication is shared. Parents are also encouraged to use this platform to share valuable information, advice and use as a bonding tool.

Hear what some of our parents have to say….

Elton & Sherolene De Klerk

Ceazer was enrolled in Dream Tree in 2018. At that time he was 6 years of age and heavily speech delayed. We as his parents were at wits end since he was our first and only child at that time. We were clueless and hopeless regarding Ceazer's future. The Dream Tree was God send, the teachers are angels and were of greatest help and assistance in our lifes.  Ceazer has grown not only physically but emotionally, speech wise and basically everything about him has improved over the years. When we leave our boy in the morning we know he is in good hands as all the teachers are loving and caring and they go beyond their calling. We as parents are not one day sorry that we enrolled him in this school, we never up until today had any problems regarding the way Ceazer has been taught. We believe our boy still has a lot inside of him that only The Dream Tree can discover. I can recommend this school to anyone who want what is best for their children.

We have been incredibly fortunate to have our 7 year old son, Tommy, attend the Dream Tree school over the past 2 years!  It has been an amazing experience to become part of the Dream Tree family, and to see our son find his feet and grow into the confident and happy boy he is today! He absolutely loves his school, is so happy to go there every morning, and is thriving in an environment where he feels accepted and understood.  The wonderful dedication and care for each and every child can be seen in all that Elaine and her amazing staff do with such passion for the school.  The individual needs of the child are always a priority, and there is an adaptive and flexible approach to the support for each child. Dream Tree is by far the best school we could hope for, for Tommy, and is the perfect school to assist us in providing him with the help that he needs.  Thank you to Elaine and all the Dream Tree teachers who are all so wonderfully supportive to us as parents too, providing much needed reassurance and guidance along the way!

The Staff at Dream Tree are absolutely amazing. They are kind and loving, most importantly, they encourage our six year old son, Jason to learn and try new skills.  They have the ability to understand each child’s learning style and needs.  Jason exceeded our expectations this year with his literacy and numeracy skills, but most of all, his improvement in his emotional behavior. The relationship and support between the teachers, parents and the children is truly remarkable. We are so proud and blessed to be a part of this very special family.
