Empowering parents of ECD kids

A total of 21 teachers from Early Childhood Development (ECD) centres in the Langeberg Municipal area recently had an opportunity to improve their knowledge and skills.

The Breede River Winelands Rotary Club hosted a training workshop to equip teachers with the knowledge and resources to implement a child development and pre-literacy programme for parents of the children who attend their ECD Centres.

This programme, known as the Home School Parent Partnership (HSPP), consists of seven sessions with the parents, which the ECD teachers facilitate.

HSPP is a course devised by Cape Town-based literacy and learning organisation called WordWorks. Last year, three ECD principals from Bonnievale travelled to WordWorks to learn more about the course.

There they were equipped with new knowledge, skills and resources in order to present the HSPP training course to their ECD colleagues in Langeberg.

Each session of the programme focuses on an aspect of child development, showing parents how to encourage and support their young children as they learn to speak, play and interact.

The Rotary Club says it undertook this programme because if children are exposed to learning opportunities at home with their parents, then their potential for learning at school will also improve.

“The workshop will have a profound impact on the learning outcomes for many children in the area,” says Monique Stuart-Fox, Chairperson of the Rotary Club of Claremont Outreach Committee. “The ECD teachers will continue to use all they learnt to encourage parents to create learning opportunities at home with their young children.”
