Just one more thing before I leave.
I will add the link to the facebook page for the PEN, Inner City Preschool Forum, the organisation we worked for, and the page to the website where donations to the work the do can be made.
The are truly making a difference for children aged 0-6 in Pretoria, ensuring that the children are activated and prepared for school in stead of just being overlooked while their parents are at work.
Early Childhood Development (ECD) is the all-round development of children to help them to further develop into childhood and adulthood. The development of babies, toddlers and young children form the foundation for all further development that a child undergoes.
Childcare services (day-care, pre-school, etc.) represent much more than a drop-off location for working parents, they play a very important part in the development of children. They give children an opportunity to engage in a variety of educational and social activities.
During early childhood rapid development (physical, cognitive and emotional) takes place, this development is crucial in readying children for school. Children who are ready for school will be friendly, confident, and social; they will have good peer relationships, language skills and they will communicate well. School-ready children will be less likely to fail a grade and will perform better overall.
