A boost for crèche safety in Stellenbosch

On Friday 22 February crèche principals from Stellenbosch and surrounds received brand new fire extinguishers and safety signage for their crèches.

The donation is part of a broader Nedbank-sponsored initiative to, among others, improve the safety of early childhood development (ECD) centres in Stellenbosch and Paarl.

The handover took place at Amazink in Kayamandi, after the principals had completed an informative and hands-on financial training session.

“The training was successful,” said Nolitha Gwele of Nolitha’s Crèche in Kayamandi. “I learnt about budgeting, managing my finances and investing.”

Training, crèche safety and nutrition are three of the focus areas of Nedbank’s Proud of my Town Fund in Stellenbosch and Paarl.

The fund focuses on specific programmes that form part of the bank’s broader Proud of my Town programme, to address critical issues identified in towns and neighbourhoods.

“ECD is one of 10 programmes that form part of the Proud of my Town initiative,” says Johan Olivier of Stellenbosch-based social enterprise Ranyaka Community Transformation. “We work in close collaboration with multiple stakeholders, including local municipalities and other roleplayers in the ECD arena to help crèches take the necessary steps required for registration. Ranyaka is the implementing agent for the Proud of my Town programme, which is being rolled out in another five towns across South Africa this year.

The next step is to ensure all crèches with wooden structures, as classrooms participating in the programme, are painted with intumescent (fire-retardant) paint.

The first centre, Lillies Crèche in Kayamandi, was painted earlier this month. V Volunteers who would like to become involved in future crèche painting days, and individuals or businesses who would like to assist by donating building materials required for repairing crèche structures are welcome to contact Ranyaka at admin@ranyaka.co.za or on 082 302 3886.
