Registration of ECD Facilities

Government Registration for ECD Facilities

Creating sustainable, safe, and caring preschools – with the potential to grow.

KET provides on-site support, mentoring, guidance, and infrastructure support to formal and informal preschools. The focus of this support is to help these schools successfully register with the Department of Social Development by complying with minimum norms and standards. Registration also enables an ECD centre to legally operate within the confines of the Child Care Act and ensures legal safety requirements for childcare are met.

This is a daunting challenge for the majority of community-based ECD sites as the cost of meeting the various requirements and regulations, while employing qualified teachers, can be financially and logistically unachievable. With the help of targeted donor funding, KET is helping to set the benchmark for local preschools and equip educators to meet the early childhood educational needs of the children they serve.

This programme includes capacity building through workshops, on-site implementation, and ongoing site visits.
