We are building a crèche in the Nkambako Village close to Letsitele, Limpopo Province.
With many of our businesses operating in this area, our staff members brought this need to our attention, and following in-depth research, this project has come to life.
- We are working towards establishing the new Vhula Tindzumulo ECD centre in the Nkambako Village close to Letsitele, Limpopo – an area with limited pre-school facilities.
- In parallel we are building human resource capacity of local creche teachers through training and support for curriculum development and implementation, and management.
The ‘Thrive by Five Index’ assessed South African children between 4 & 5 year:
The index stated that assessed learning tasks fall into five groups:
- Gross motor skills
- Fine motor skills
- Early literacy
- Early mathematics
- Executive functioning (the child’s ability to solve problems and pay attention)
are not able to meet the expected early learning and physical growth standards
attending Early Learning Programmes are not able to do the learning tasks expected
are falling far behind the expected standard
not emotionally ready for school
We want to help grow a brighter tomorrow for these children.
