ECD RESOURCES

EARLY LEARNING RESOURCE LIBRARY (ELRL)

One of the challenges facing community-based ECD Centres is that due to financial constraints and lack of space, the majority of them do not have the resources to offer the young children in their care optimal learning programs and a variety of learning experiences.

Masikhule’s ELRL provides multiple ECD Centres with regular access to a large variety of educational resources. These include theme bags with activity ideas and materials necessary to implement our Early Learning Program, age- and language-appropriate educational toys, games and books for the children, as well as inspirational books for the educators, posters, fantasy corner dress-up items and much more!  Our delivery service ensures resources are delivered to ELRL members on a regular basis.

EARLY LITERACY DRIVE

“If you are going to get anywhere in life you have to read a lot of books.” – Roald Dahl 

EARLY LITERACY DRIVE

All children, of all ages, need to have access to books to improve early literacy skills, to develop their minds and aptitude for learning, their communication and language skills, their imagination and to expand their understanding of the world.  Reading (and being read to) is also a perfect way to de-stress and relax.  And it is fun!  Many children living in marginalised communities have a severe lack of access and exposure to reading material.  As part of our desire to introduce young children to the wonderful world of books, we aim to install a reading corner at each and every one of the ECD centres we mentor. Each reading corner will consist of a variety of age- and language-appropriate books and items to make the reading experience even more pleasurable, enticing and homely, such as comfortable cushions, mats, blankets, soft toys and wall decorations.

Masikhule makes a positive contribution to the upliftment of communities through skills training, mentorship and capacity building in the field of Early Childhood Development.

The name Masikhule means
‘Let us Grow’ in isiXhosa.
