Centre for Early Childhood Development
Putting young children first
Nelson Mandela 18 July 1918 - 05 December 2013
We put young children first by ensuring quality early childhood development for our country’s youngest citizens.
WHAT WE DO
We provide training, resources and support in the field of early childhood development aimed at enhancing individual and organisational capacity; we develop and disseminate resources; and we carry out research specifically related to the African context.
WHERE WE WORK
Based in Cape Town, South Africa, we offer services and programmes country wide, increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of early childhood development provision to all South Africa's children. We also work in other African countries at times and our knowledge development and dissemination has a global focus.
SUSTAINING OUR WORK
We sustain our work through self-generated income from project management, consultancy work, publications and research. Specific early childhood development programmes and projects are supported through grants from Foundations and Trusts, Government Departments and from Corporate Social Investment Programmes.
