KINGSBURGH Child and Family Welfare­ provided information and skills training to Early Childhood Development­ (ECD) facilitators on Thursday 22 October.

A group of 15 ECD facilitators attended the programme, which was funded by AECI.

“The programme was aimed at child protection and keep- safe issues,” said senior social worker, Sandra­ Govender.

Commenting on the course, attendees agreed that they have gained valuable skills.

Karla Akal said: “It is a very informative, clear and practical programme that we can all use to help children in our care.”

“Attending the programme taught me what to look for in abused children and I hope I can help at least one child,” Maria­ Fourie said.

Thandi Thembe said: “Today I learnt that children have some healing too and we must understand that as teachers we need to know that children are different and come from different families.
“We need to love, care and share with them.”
