Early childhood education is considered the foundation for cognitive development in young children. The recent shift of the Early Childhood Development (ECD) function to the education department was done in the hopes of strengthening the sector.

 


As of April, the Early Childhood Development (ECD) sector no longer fell under the Department of Social Development and is now under the control of the Education Department. 


After years of preparation, Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga will officially receive the Early Childhood Development (ECD) function from the Department of Social Development (DSD). 

 


Improving the knowledge and skills of South Africa’s teachers is an important part of strengthening our education system. Research has shown that our teachers’ skill levels are poor, and teachers are required by law to participate in professional development practices, such as attending workshops and courses that keep them up to date with current practice.
