Why Cotlands and why ECD?

Benefits of ECD:

Individual
Ninety percent of a child’s brain development happens during the first five years. This is a critical period, not only because it lays the foundation on which all later learning, behaviour and health depend, but also because it determines the trajectory of a child’s life.

Education
Increase in matric pass rate.

Economy
Increase in employable workforce.

Societal
Investing in young children is one of the most effective ways of overcoming the challenges facing our society today. Creating access to a high-quality play-based ECD programme for children living in poverty contributes to improving their intellectual and social development, their school success, and ultimately their employability and economic performance as adults.

Livelihood
Decrease in poverty cases.

Crime Prevention
Reduction in crime rates.
