Feed the Babies Fund provides an educative, stimulating and safe environment for children through the education of the caregivers in educare centres in Early Childhood Development programs.
To ensure that children attending educare centres receive the necessary education and stimulation, we train caregivers in our in-house Crèche Management course, equipping them with the necessary skills and tools to manage their centres correctly and effectively and become sustainable over the long term.
Further ECD courses in literacy and numeracy, Classroom Practice, toy making and an introduction to the use of Lego in teaching, are offered so that carers can teach a syllabus that will aid the development and further education of the children and prepare them for formal school education.
We also offer accredited training in Child First Aid, Health and Hygiene and the Certificate in Early Childhood Development (Level 4) qualification.
Our ECD courses are offered at our training centre in Osizweni, Newcastle or at our head office in Glenwood, Durban. Our training centre in Osizweni is centrally situated in Northern KZN and easily accessible for our beneficiaries in the Amajuba, Zululand, Umzinyathi and Uthukela Districts. Our Durban head office services our beneficiaries in the Ethekwini, Ilembe, King Cetshwayo and Umkhanyakude Districts.
In addition to the training courses, educare centres are provided with educational posters, stationery, toys and other educational aids to assist in the implementation of that learnt on the courses.
