Toddlers need your help urgently, right now!
Toddlers need your help. Preschool is a vital phase in a child’s educational career as skills acquired at this educational level helps to prepare a child for formal education. The pandemic has had a devastating impact on this sector and the consequences of this neglect may prove to be dire for this entire generation of children.
Parents and guardians have lost their jobs and are unable to pay school fees for this vital phase of a child’s development. School fees at the Johanna Malan Early Childhood Development Centre (ECDC) is R 11 000 p.a / R 1 100 p.m.
You can ensure that one child will have a successful educational career!
In last year, the early childhood development sector was neglected. Little was said about the effects the pandemic has had on pre-school children. The Johanna Malan Early Childhood Development Centre (JMECDC) has seen a significant decline in the number of little ones registered at the centre since it opened its doors in January. The centre has had financial challenges in the past but with fewer pupils and more parents and guardians losing their jobs, the situation is getting worse.
“Financially, things are not looking good. We have fewer pupils for purposes of social distancing and because parents are still unable to pay the monthly school fees,” says Betsie Momsen, Principal at the Johanna Malan ECDC.
During stricter lockdown levels, the centre was able to keep its little ones stimulated with different activity packages they could do at home. This meant the children’s development and academic progress could continue. It is sad to witness those same children, who have great potential, not being able to come back this year simply because their parents cannot afford it.
