Creche Support Programme
Partnering with Amazing Brainz, Prochorus Delft will be training and evaluating a group of 80 crèche teachers from over 20 crèches in the Delft community. The curriculum is designed to equip the teachers and provide them with the resources they need to run successful crèches and move one step closer to registering with the Department of Social Development (DSD).
Looking to the future, the desire is to open the training up to as many teachers in the community as possible. The heart is to upskill and empower the teachers who will be teaching the next generation.
The first cycle started in September and will run until June 2019, after which all the crèches involved will undergo monitoring, evaluation and mentoring, before receiving their Amazing Brainz curriculum certificate.
The Delft Early Childhood Development Project is a community development project that empowers teachers and workers in crèches and early childhood development (ECD) centres in the Delft township of Cape Town. It assists these committed caregivers to develop the essential knowledge and skills needed to lay a firm, educational foundations for local children.
With the national lockdown, our training initiatives stopped. With our established relationships in the community of Delft and funding that we already had, we realised that ECD training would be irrelevant for children and teachers that are starving.
We hope to support these families in the time of instability that lies ahead.
