Our Programmes

Centre-based programmes focus on ECD teaching and management within the centre environment. In addition to in-person training, we provide regular site visits to participating ECDs throughout the training to ensure site heads and practitioners are able to implement their learnings in their ECDs. 

Accredited Skills Programmes


Learning Resources Workshop

These workshops have been developed to enable ECD practitioners to fully utilize the learning and teaching opportunities implicit in equipment usually seen as “toys”. This includes the use of resources in age-appropriate activities to enhance the development of the children in their care. In addition, the workshops are designed to encourage participants to construct and use simple but effective resources out of household and recycled materials.

Parental Workshop

These workshops use a poster campaign to deliver key messages about nutrition, rights, developmental areas, etc., to parents or guardians of babies, toddlers, and young children. The objective of the workshops is to encourage continued learning and stimulation at home through parental guidance.

National Curriculum Framework (NCF) Workshop

The National Curriculum Framework (NCF) provides guidance for those developing programmes and working with babies, toddlers, and young children from birth to age four. The NCF promotes a holistic vision of ECD which pays attention to:


  • The first 1000 days which are the windows of opportunities for interventions before birth and the first two years of life after birth; and
  • The third and fourth years of life and the time before the child enters primary school The NCF therefore focuses upon the child from before birth through to the time that she enters Grade R.
