Kagisano is an early childhood development (ECD) centre in Hillshaven.
The Early Childhood Development Project of Kagisano Day Care Centre aims to provide a day care and crèche where pre-school children could be provided with holistic early childhood development which includes care, healthy meals and developmental activities for these children. Many parents of these children cannot afford day care fees and the project support focuses on supporting children from low or no income families.
The SDET currently subsidises the fees for 45 children whose parents cannot afford to pay for creche, and has upgraded toys and learning materials for the Centre.
The ultimate aim of the project is to create a flagship ECD centre in Hillshaven that will cater for 150 children by 2019. It is foreseen that the budget for this project will have to be substantially increased to achieve the goal of establishing an ECD centre.
