The need for a child and youth care centre in Kroonstad was identified and Presidentia opened in 2005. It houses 12 children, 6 boys and 6 girls.
A safe home is provided that provides in all the needs of a child. Presidentia has a child care worker that cares for the day-to-day needs of children, and a social worker that evaluates the children and their special needs.
All the primary school children attend the Sentrale Volkskool in Kroonheuwel and the secondary school children attend one of three high schools in the vicinity.
Children attend the Dutch Reformed Church in Kroonheuwel including Sunday School. A priority is placed on religion and time is allocated for daily devotion.
Presidentia Child and Youth Care receives donations from the community for their daily needs which includes equipment, clothes and groceries. There is a requirement for literacy material such as books and especially magazines that are suitable for school projects. Extra tuition for maths classes is also a pressing need.
