ON Tuesday, 16 February, Kingsburgh Child and Family Welfare presented a course on education and care to teachers from early childhood development (ECD) centres.

“The protection of children is of paramount importance to child welfare. Our mandate of family preservation entails ensuring­ the best positive care for the children in our community,” senior social worker, Sandra Govender stated.

“Children in our community attend day care centres and therefore it is important that ECD centres provide education and care to children in the temporary absence of their parents, or adult care givers,” she added.

Govender said these services­ should be holistic and demonstrate the appreciation of the importance of considering the child’s health nutrition, education, psychosocial and other needs within the context of the family and community.

Sister Dudu Cele, a nutritional advisor from Kingsburgh­ Clinic also addressed the crèche personnel on nutrition.

“In terms of the guidelines for early childhood development services, we have decided to put information together to assist you, as ECD facilities, to provide the best, economical and nutritious meals to the children in your care,” Govender said.
