Early Childhood Development

ESST’s Best Start Early Childhood Development Programme is aimed at would-be mothers, mothers and caretakers of young children (pre-natal to 3 years of age) in primarily disadvantaged communities. It shows them ways in which they can attend to the educational and developmental needs of their children during these vitally important formative years – and how to do so practically and optimally, irrespective of socio-economic conditions. We provide would-be mothers, mothers and caretakers (crechès and daycare centres) with education, assistance and guidance on caring for their unborn and newborn baby and toddlers to Grade R.
