Louwville ECD forum launched

The Louwville Early Childhood Development Forum (ECD) celebrated their launch on Friday 5 October and are currently in the process of registration.

The launch took place at the Skilpad hall in Vredenburg.

“All the ECD principals were part of a cluster group that held monthly discussions on challenges as well as planning the classrooms topics,” said Centre Development Facilitor at Early Learning Resource Unit (Elru) Lucinda Faulmann.

They realised that they were doing very well and decided to expand and elect members to become a forum for the Louwville ECD centres.

They have been in operation for 18 months now.

“In October 2017 we received support from the Early Learning Resource Unit (ELRU), sending us on a weekend away for forum training which enhanced our knowledge about running a forum,” Faulmann continued.

After the forum training they were excited and enthusiastic to operate as a legal forum and partnered with the police and the Department of social development (DSD) to help raise awareness about child protection.

After that they planned their first community event for 17 of 23 ECD centres, a sports day, which was a great success for the forum.

“We decided that we would like to have more events like this as this was a great way of getting the community’s parents involved.”

The Louwville ECD Forum wants to ensure quality ECD education promoting safe, secure and a nurturing childhood to our children.

They believe in giving each child equal opportunities to grow, play and develop into their full potential.

Their current challenges are minimal resources, but they improve where they can as well as their fellow ECD centres that are struggling with infrastructure upgrades.

In the near future the forum will include non-centre based programmes as well, for example: playgroups and home visiting programmes focussing on the first 1 000 days.
