We hope this email finds you well.
We have received many questions regarding the opening of ECD centres and aftercare services from principals and ECD centres. We directed these questions to Tughfa (Director of Early Childhood Development and Partial Care at the Department of Social Development) to provide much-needed answers. After receiving her answers (on Monday, 11 May), we designed a FAQ leaflet (showing our questions and the answers DSD provided). Please see the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) leaflet attached, and feel free to share amongst your networks.
We are concerned that centres may be misinterpreting government directives and we think it is helpful to have these guidelines directly from DSD to provide some clarity.
We also wanted to share with you the process for applying for the Social Relief Grant to share with those that may need it. Please note that this is the new number. The application process opened on Monday.
Please stay well.
