Moorreesburg crèche has brand new premises

The Vuyolwethu Educare Centre in Moorreesburg has reason to celebrate, having progressed from a cramped space with a leaking roof to its very own building with more than enough space for the little ones to learn and play in a safe, creative environment.

The new premises were officially opened on Tuesday 11 February.

According to Phakamani Soldaka, secretory of the School Governing Body and project manager, the crèche was established in 2013 by Priscilla Nxam, current principal in a backyard structure. Three years later it was registered as a non-profit organisation, with a view to one day obtaining land and develop and own its own building.

This dream became a reality when a piece of land was negotiated in the Moorreesburg Informal Settlement and, with the help of sponsors, the crèche was erected.

“We were able to acquire land from the municipality on a lease basis and received funding for the building and fencing from private funders through the Centre for Early Child Development (CECD), a non-profit in Cape Town,” Soldaka says.

Formerly, limited space meant they could only accommodate 20 children, with more or less 30 on the waiting list. Soldaka says they hope to accommodate more in the new establishment.

At the opening funders handed the keys over to the crèche management.

The school board has extended its deepest gratitude to all its sponsors, funders and volunteers for making this dream possible and for their continuous support.
