Request for information from organisations in the non-centre-based ECD sector
In line with the National Development Plan vision of achieving universal access to quality ECD services by 2030, government is looking at different approaches to expanding different types of ECD programmes. The Department of Social Development (DSD) would like to get an idea of the current provision and potential for expansion of non-centre based ECD programmes across the country.

Your participation in a short survey to this end is therefore kindly requested and will assist the department to establish and unlock the potential to expand access to quality ECD services through non-centre-based programmes.

Your responses are relevant whether your organisation directly provides non-centre-based ECD programmes or supports other entities or individuals to do so. Support may include, for example, training, coaching/mentoring, providing a package of materials/equipment along with training/programme support, quality assurance, etc.

Please share this survey (by forwarding the email) with other organisations operating in the ECD space so that we are able to gather as much information on the sector as possible.
