ECD Outreach

The Centre has an active outreach programme to 4 under-resourced ECD sites in the surrounding area. This consists of helping them to access resources, as well as including them in our Parent Workshops and other training opportunities. Once a quarter, children from each of these 4 ECD sites are invited to visit the LRD for a literacy experience that includes stories, games, interactive activities, and access to books. They also spend time playing with the Little Red Dragon preschool children in our outdoor educational play area. This is a very exciting outing for these children and they love visiting the Centre. Our ECD practitioner, Ziyanda Mkalipi, also teaches them songs and stories in Isixhosa and makes use of translanguaging to ensure that every child understands the story, can retell it and draw pictures.
