A better life begins with a good education right from the start. That is why the Kouga Wind Farm Community Development Trust is working with the Centre for Early Childhood Development and Africa A+ Schools to improve the quality of learning and teaching in 33 of our community crèches.
The Trust will invest R20 million over the next five years in bringing our Early Childhood Development (ECD) professionals up to standard.
A number of local facilitators have been selected from five wards in the Kouga Municipality to be trained to serve as mentors for local crèches. The facilitators, who all manage their own ECD centres, will be equipped to support future centres in the area.
The emphasis of the training is on providing quality early education that will develop creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving abilities in children.
The training spans a period of three years, each building on the learning of the previous years, so that they will be fully-fledged trainers of other ECD managers by the end of their third year.
