Building blocks of Early Childhood Development: essential elements

Date :
Thursday, April 19, 2018 - 12:00
Location :
Pretoria, Cape Town and Durban

Interesting feedback on the importance of bonding in early infanthood. Presentations on projects from Gauteng - can these be replicated in other municipal settings? 

On 19 April 2018 we will host a further seminar where Katharine Frost from Ububele will present on the theoretical underpinnings of the approach taken to further build up our understanding of these projects. South Africa’s ECD policy is progressive but there remains a gap between policy and intervention/implementation. The centrality of relationships i.e. attachments in the first 1000 days of a child’s life is acknowledged, but this knowledge needs to be translated into practice. A case example will be presented where attachment theory has been integrated into a project and where there is now some evidence to support its effectiveness.
