Grow ECD

Equipping the people who are educating the next generation.

Our vision: 5-star early learning in every neighbourhood that unlocks human potential. 
We work with preschools in developing neighbourhoods to help them run 5-star Early Childhood Development (ECD) centres that are also financially sustainable businesses. Preschools are complex small businesses that create job opportunities (mostly for women) and deliver an essential service to their communities. When we collaborate with preschool owners, teachers, parents and other ECD organisations we can unlock the human potential across the value chain. Let’s ensure that our next generation of children gets a solid foundation to become active, contributing citizens.

Where do we offer the Grow ECD programme?

Grow ECD offers various products and services to the ECD community. Most of these are available nationally (across South Africa). Selected products and services are only available within 75km of our offices in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban. Please visit the detailed Grow ECD website for more information.

I wish I had found Grow ECD earlier. Initially running my centre was a challenge. I didn’t know what I was doing. We had no curriculum and no educational resources. We would buy things as we saw them and try to improvise. I was lost - running around like head-less chicken! The Education Programme is definitely value for money. I would recommend it to anyone. The image it gives to your ECD centre, the professionalism it portrays to parents and how it assists you as principal!
