Challenge

In South Africa the majority of Early Childhood Development centres have under trained caregivers and limited resources. Children are left in these centres without opportunities for age-appropriate learning and exploration. These children are under-prepared for school and already at a disadvantage.

Solution

This project has been developed to assist caregivers in impoverished communities who are tasked with looking after preschool children while their parents are at work. Many of these caregivers have limited education and no access to formal training. Education Africa trains these caregivers in Early Childhood Developmental education so that they can get our children school ready, affording the children of impoverished communities an equal footing in their fundamental formative years.

Long-Term Impact

75% of ECD caregivers in South Africa have never received any kind of training. Simply filling this gap, providing current and future potential caregivers basic training in early cognitive and physical development, creates an opportunity to halt this cycle and give disadvantaged South African children the opportunity they need to begin life on the right foot.
