The Centre for Early Childhood Development (CECD) will host a national conference aimed at increasing access and improving quality of Grade R and early childhood development (ECD) programmes in South Africa.

The conference taking place from Tuesday 21 to Thursday 23 July in Cape Town will showcase the best practices of Grade R and ECD across South Africa. The conference targets delegates representing government departments, donors and grant makers, ECD non-profit organisations, Grade R teachers at primary schools and ECD centres, ECD teachers and managers, technical and vocational education and training (TVET) colleges and universities. Space will be limited to 200 delegates. CECD director Prof Eric Atmore says since only a small number of children are in quality Grade R and ECD programmes, it is imperative that effective programmes are put in place and that access to these programmes is increased and the quality improved.

The conference seeks presentations on the following: academic or research inputs on ECD and Grade R; examples of quality Grade R and ECD programmes; Grade R and ECD curriculum; play as an essential part of Grade R and ECD and advancing literacy and numeracy in Grade R and ECD.V More info: www.makinggraderandecdwork.co.za.
