Investment in the development, care and protection of children’s needs, is a priority, as it is our vision to ensure that ECD centres move from being day care facilities to centres of education and development.
Teaching aids programmes are fundamental if we are to improve numeracy and literacy on early childhood development, which is why we have provided educational resources and equipment to stimulate learning and play. The equipment includes both indoor and outdoor apparatus as well as books and educational tools to aid positive childhood development.
The equipment will assist the children in developing their literacy, numeracy and life skills; including vocabulary, observational skills, eye-hand coordination, problem-solving skills, logical thinking and recognition of colours and shapes.
