In his SONA address in February, President Cyril Ramaphosa pledged that the responsibility of ECD will move from the Department of Social Development to the Department of Basic Education this year.
This function shift will affect the ECD community in a number of ways and therefore the Collaboration of ECD Networks – which includes BRIDGE, NECDA and SA ECD Congress – have developed a survey to consolidate the sector’s views and opinions on this issue.
The Collaboration of ECD Networks also urges the ECD community to participate in its survey considering the implications of the changing landscape and how it will affect education, training and development in the ECD sector.
Do not miss the opportunity to have your say. The results of the survey will be used to ensure that the ECD sector’s concerns are voiced as the various agencies work to implement the function shift.
The closing date for submissions has been extended and closes this Friday, 5 April 2019.
