SA Early Childhood Development Awards

South African Award » Protection and Development of Children Award

Taking into consideration the South African Government’s commitment to recognise and support ECD, the South African Early Childhood Development Awards aim to raise awareness of the ECD sector’s goal to break the cycle of inherited poverty.

The Awards highlight the need for a proper system of early childhood development, one that is integrated in its approach, by considering children’s health, nutrition, education, psychosocial and additional environmental factors within the context of their family and their community.

The annual ECD Awards initiative which is the only one of its kind in South Africa, has been taking place.

This has been in partnership with the Departments of Basic Education and Social Development, South African Congress of Early Childhood Development, UNICEF, Jim Joel Fund, and media.

The ECD awards are aimed at the promotion and recognition of excellence, hard work, dedication and investment in the future of children by individual practitioners, community centres and organisations involved in early childhood development.

The ECD Awards categories promote:

  • The improvement of quality of care, protection and development of children.

  • Skills development of care givers on caring for children and providing them with stimulating environments.

  • The importance of early childhood development.

    National Awards winners stand the chance to receive monetary awards or scholarships.

    Application Deadline; 2 September.
