WHY EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT (ECD)?
The goal of ECD is to promote all aspects of growth and development of children between 0-8 years. Children are exposed to a rich and simulative environment and this enables them to explore, experiment, to manipulate objects and reach their full potential for school and lifelong education.
There are three major players in the ECD programme and these are the parents, the child and the school. Centres assist parents to meet their children’s developmental needs and they have the opportunity to engage in productive activities.
