Building institutional capacity of creches

Feed the Babies Fund provides an educative, stimulating and safe environment for children through education of the caregivers in Crèche Management, Early Childhood Development programs and First Aid.
To ensure that children attending crèche receive the necessary education and stimulation, we offer caregivers an in-house course in Crèche Management. This equips them with the necessary skills to ensure that crèches are run correctly and become sustainable over the long term. We also facilitate outsourced courses in other ECD disciplines and First Aid.
These courses equip them with the necessary tools to manage their crèches effectively and teach the children a syllabus that assists in their development and prepares them for school education.
 In addition to the training courses, crèches are provided with educational posters and stationery to assist in the implementation of that learnt on the courses.
We also guide and support the crèches in their endeavours to become legally registered so that they can institute their own fundraising initiatives.

Building Institutional Capacity of Edu-Care Centres

Project staff of Feed the Babies Fund spend time in the field assessing the growth and development of the children and ensuring that educare centres are run effectively and in terms of laid down guidelines. As such, we become fully aware of other needs that the centres and children may have.

Based on these observations and taking cognisance of the individual centres’ wish lists, we meet these needs by providing educare centres with items such as blankets, mattresses, tables & chairs, stationery, toys and any other necessities. These items are allocated to centres on an in-need basis. Please see our Wish List for these items of need.

We also guide and support the centres in their endeavours to become legally registered so that they can institute their own fundraising initiatives.

Assistance is also offered to educare centres that may qualify for Government subsidies to apply for same so that they may become self-sufficient.
