Early Childhood Development

Early Childhood Development


This is an entry-level qualification for those who want to enter the field of Education, Training and Development, specifically in the sub-field of ECD. Many of those who will seek this qualification are already practising within the field, but without formal recognition. This qualification will enable you to facilitate the all-round development of young children in a manner that is sensitive to culture and individual needs (including special needs), and enable them to provide quality early childhood development services for children in a variety of contexts, including community based services, ECD centres, at home and in institutions. In particular, recipients of this qualification will be able to:

-Plan and prepare for Early Childhood Development

-Facilitate and monitor the development of babies, toddlers and young children.

-Provide care and support to babies, toddlers and young children.


ECD is a priority area within the South African context and is supported by legislation, national policies and strategies. The development of babies, toddlers and young children forms the most critical foundation of further development into childhood and adulthood. There is thus a vast need for ECD services, and it is critical that the field should be served by competent practitioners. In order to meet the needs at ECD level, it is important to be able to identify and recognise competent ECD practitioners who are able to work in a variety of ECD contexts. This qualification will provide a means to give recognition to practitioners at an entry level, thus making it possible for practitioners to increase their employment prospects, and at the same time provide the field with suitably qualified practitioners.
