A NGO Identifies crèches in Khayelitsha to address the dire need for training and support to caregivers

The Unlimited Child Programme, an organisation focusing on early childhood development, has identified nine crèches in Khayelitsha to address the dire need for training and support for caregivers in the community.

The Unlimited Child Programme chief executive officer, Cassy Healy, says that studies have proved that unless children from zero to seven years are exposed to “The inputs such as learning colours and shapes, their potential will be severely stunted.”

Meanwhile, the organisation, which has recently expanded to areas such as Khayelitsha, aims to reach 25 000 crèches throughout South Africa within the next five years.
